‘Own It’ is a song off ‘Heavy Is the Head,’ Stormzy’s second studio album. The track which, also featured Ed Sheeran, English singer-songwriter, was released in November last year.
The feat is the latest in what has been impressive run for Burna Boy who particularly took the world by storm in 2019, and has since continued to blaze the trail.
It also comes about the same time Davido snagged multiple certifications from Sony Music West Africa (SMWA), after three of his projects hit platinum benchmark.
