TurnTable Charts is excited to announce the launch of a certification system – a program designed to recognize and reward long-standing artistic achievement in our local marketplace. The awards (silver, gold, and platinum) are given to artists who have achieved certain goals and milestones.

Background

The certification system by Turntable Charts in Nigeria is based on on-demand streaming and digital downloads. For on-demand streaming, paid streams weigh more than ad-supported streams.

Standards        

Singles

At the moment, the certification for single is based on audio streaming and digital downloads.

1 unit = 150 streams

1. Silver: 25,000 units

2. Gold: 50,000 units

3. Platinum: 100,000 units

Album

At the moment, the certification for album is based on audio streaming and digital downloads. A title is classified as an ‘album’ if it has more than three singles and/or surpasses a 15-minute runtime.

1 unit = 1500 streams

1. Silver: 12,500 units

2. Gold: 25,000 units

3. Platinum: 50,000 units

Application & Launch

The official application process for the certification will launch on February 20, 2023.

The Goal

Our goal is for this to become entrenched into the Nigerian music community and serve as the foundation for which more rigid and comprehensive systems will be built. TCSN will gradually become a part of an industry-wide association and will continue to collect and celebrate artistic achievement in the country.
