Wizkid and Tems have both been awarded at NOVO event space in Los Angeles.
This top recognition comes after their collaborative song made more than 400,000 sales in the US.
They recieved the platinum plaques for ‘Essence’ on Monday, October 4 after BigWiz’s show at the NOVO event space where they performed together.
Following their recognition, the ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner is seen in a viral video thanking Tems and others who were a part of the song’s success story.
