Wizkid and Tems, Nigerian music stars, have received a platinum plaque each for ‘Essence’, their collaborative project.

The pair snagged the gong today at NOVO event space in Los Angeles after the song attained over 400,000 sales in the US

In a now-viral video, the ‘Ojuelegba’ crooner is seen thanking Tems and others who contributed to the success of the song.

“I want to really appreciate you (Tems) I love you baby girl, you’re a superstar. This is your moment, the world needs to hear this, you’re special to me. This is personal to me,” he said.
