It is just some months after the release of the album and it has recorded over 1 billion streams worldwide with people around the world going crazy about the music in the album.

The streams were confirmed by the American record label "Columbia Records UK" own by Sony Music Entertainment which has a contract with the popular Nigerian hip hop artist Davido.

Posting on Twitter Columbia Records UK said: " "HUGE congrats to @davido - 'A Good Time' has officially reached OVER 1 BILLION streams! "

A Good Time album featured many famous musicians in Nigeria and outside the country with the likes of Chris Brown, Summer Walker, Gunna, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Dremo, Peruzzi, Popcaan, Zlatan, Yonda, Wurld and Naira Marley all in the list.
