CKay Becomes Best Selling Afrobeats Artist And 10th Best Globally

Can you believe it Nigerian Afrobeats star CKay has surpassed Wizkid, Davido, and Wizkid to become the best-selling Afrobeats artist and the world's tenth best-selling musician?

Few artists can boast of having the world's most Shazamed song and being the world's best-selling Afrobeats musician, but CKay can. With his worldwide hit 'Love Nwantiti,' the Afrobeats musician continues to achieve huge milestones, and he must be feeling fortunate.

Speaking to Enola Lasaki, he said, 'Love Nwantiti' a while back; he said, It wasn't really something heard of. There are not really many songs in the Afrobeats space, in the Afrobeats Hall of Fame, that had choruses like that, that sounded like that.

He added, 'In fact, the label I was signed to at the time didn't even take the song seriously as a single because it wasn't a club record. It wasn't fast.'

CKay is also ranked the 135th artist on Spotify globally, solidifying Afrobeats status as a global phenomenon. Check his latest single below
