Grammy-winning Nigerian musician Wizkid’s groundbreaking Billboard Hot 100 smash, ‘Essence,’ was rumored to have reached one million in sales equivalent on September 21, 2021.
However, Chart Data, a reputable source, broke the story which comes just two weeks after the song was certified Gold in the United States, making it Wizkid’s second Gold record after Drake’s ‘Come Closer.’ ‘Essence’ is the first Nigerian song to achieve platinum status in the United States with this achievement.
‘Essence’ has risen to No. 17 in the charts after falling last week. Turntable Charts, Nigeria’s leading music journal, has stated that ‘Essence’ was the third most popular Nigerian song in 2021.
