TurnTable Certification System of Nigeria (TCSN), founded by the Nigeria music magazine TurnTable, to represent the music recording certification in Nigeria based on the number of albums and singles paid streams and digital downloads. The certification is not automatic; for an award to be made, the manager, distributor, or record label must first request certification from its website.

History

On 20 March 2021, TurnTable announced its partnership with the Nigerian music community WeTalkSound, to lunch a music recording certification called the Recording Certification of Nigeria (abbreviated as "RCN") to award Gold, Platinum, and Diamond certifications to singles, albums, and videos. Prior to its launch, RCN began operation on March 2021, certifying only music videos with the typical Gold and Platinum benchmarks, awarding gold certifications for 2,500 units, platinum for 5,000 units, and multi-platinum starting from 10,000 units. In a conversation with The Native; Dolapo Amusat, Ayomide Oriowo, Fortune Osayawe, and Similoluwa Adegoke, spoke about growing the music ecosystem in Nigeria and its vision for the Recording Certification of Nigeria in the nearest future.
