Additionally, if everything is setup correctly on the DO side, it might be worth double checking for any possible typos that may prevent the DNS from being set up correctly.

everything seems fine from Digitalocean end. but your name server is still pointing to the AWS nameserver

So i would suggest you to check your aws control panel to set DO nameserver properly.
