American-born Nigerian singer Davido has achieved yet another milestone thanks to his 2017 hit single 'Fall'.
Just days after it was certified Gold in Canada, the single off Davido's 2019 released album 'A Good Time' has also been certified Gold in the United States of America.
Davido while celebrating the Canada Gold status had noted that the next target was the US, and it has finally come to pass.
In a post on his social media pages on Wednesday, the Atlanta born singer while sharing the news with his fans seemed to throw shades at those who laughed at him when he said he had set his eyes for the Gold certification in the US.
"I PREDICTED THIS COUPLE DAYS AGO !!! FALL IS NOW CERTIFIED GOLD IN THE ‘USA !!!!! THEY LAUGHED AT ME BUT I DID IT FIRST." Davido tweeted.
According to Music recording certification, a single is certified Gold in the US after surpassing a shipment of 500,000 units.
Apart from Gold certification in Canada and now US, 'Fall' which is a second song off the A Good Time album had already been certified platinum by the Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA).
The single produced by Nigerian record producer Kiddominant has also set many other records among them being ranked as one of the top-100-most-Shazam-searched singles in America in January 2019, and was a top-10 record on Shazam in New York.
In February 2019, 'Fall' became the longest charting Nigerian pop song in Billboard history.
As of March 2020, 'Fall' had received over 40 million streams on Spotify.
