Budding Nigerian singer-songwriter, Chukwuka Ekweani, also known as Ckay, has said that he doesn’t subscribe to the idea of Afrobeats artistes bragging about being better than their colleagues.
He said all Nigerian musicians would forge ahead more in their careers if there is collective support for one another rather than doing comparisons.
CKay stated this in a recent interview on VICE while talking about his music, the influence and spread of Afrobeats in the global scene.
The ‘Love Nwantiti’ said Afrobeats as a genre is the new pop and the culture can grow to be bigger than it is today the same way Hip Hop culture grew.
