WizKid is celebrating a major milestone in his career: his single “Essence” featuring artist Tems is officially certified platinum. Recently, the two Nigerian singers behind the hit song received platinum plaques for the record. As he reflected on his latest accomplishment, Wiz shared a few words of gratitude to his collaborator.
“We have a platinum record,” he continued. “I just want to say thank you to all involved in this. From Tems to the producers...Legendary beats, those are my brothers from way back. I want to say we made a good beat. Thanks to the whole team from believing in the dreams from early. To my fans, I appreciate you all. I pray God bless you all.”
WizKid’s “Essence” appeared on the singer’s Made in Lagos project, which dropped in October of last year. The song earned gold certification in September nearly two months after it made its entry into the Billboard Hot 100.
