Wizkid Grabs Third UK Gold Certification with ‘Essence’
Nigerian superstar, Wizkid has grabbed his third-ever gold certification in the UK with his global smash hit Essence which has gathered 400,000 unit sales so far.
Essence has become Wizkid’s third-ever song as a lead artist to secure a gold certification in the UK with 400,000 unit sales in the region. This was shared via Instagram yesterday.
Essence was one of the standout songs of 2021 even though it was released on Wizkid’s 2020 album, Made in Lagos. The song became a global phenomenon and subsequently commanded the attention of pop superstar, Justin Bieber who requested to feature on the remix.
Last month, Essence was named on the year-end lists for best songs of the year on notable platforms like Pitchfork, Spotify, Rollingstone, TIME, and more.
Wizkid has now grabbed his third-ever gold certification in the UK as a lead artist with the new achievement by his smash hit song, Essence. The Tems-assisted jam has amassed over 400,00 unit sales in the United Kingdom and this is coming on the very day the Made in Lagos album was certified Silver also in the UK.
