According to his tweets, his hit songs of 2017, IF and Fall have won great prizes for their sales, with Fall officially becoming Platinum and IF officially Diamond. This good news was also accompanied with his MTVbase and MOBO awards which he won for Best African Act and Best Worldwide Act in 2017.
The Plaques were presented at the Columbia Records UK office and Efe Ogbeni who executed the record deal for Davido with Sony was present along with Managing Directors and President of Columbia UK Stacey Tang, Manish Arora and Ferdy Unger-Hamilton.
