What does it mean to go Diamond and Platinum In South Africa?
As written on Pulse ng – According to the Recording Industry of South Africa (RISA), For a single to be certified Gold status it should have sold over 10,000 units, and 20,000 units for Platinum status.
For it to go Diamond, it has to do 10 times Platinum. In this case that equals 200,000 copies.
Interestingly, the RISA also counts music videos as a part of it too. 5,000 views of a music video makes the record go gold. 10,000 makes it platinum. It’s a complex system that involves lots of calculations.
Earlier in February, Davido was awarded with two plaques for his singles, ‘If’ and ‘Fall’ , which went Diamond and Platinum respectively in South Africa.
