Davido’s “Fall” becomes GOLD certified in U.S days after it went Gold in Canada
“RIAA” is a music sales award cum certification in America, and its acronym stands for Recording Industry Association of America.
For any musical work of art to be certified RIAA in America, such piece of art must have surpassed 500,000 unit sales based on physical distribution.
According to RIAA, a Gold-certified song or album represents a whopping $1 million sales, and now that’s a big fortune in Nigerian currency, do the calculation.
“FALL” has been certified platinum in South Africa, Gold in Canada and now Gold again in the U.S.
This is indeed a double win for the music executive for the year 2020.
