Budding Nigerian singer-songwriter, Chukwuka Ekweani, who is better known as Ckay, has said that he doesn’t subscribe to the idea of Afrobeats artistes bragging about being better than their colleagues.
According to him, all Nigerian musicians would forge ahead more in their careers if there is collective support for one another rather than doing comparisons.
CKay made his idea known in a recent interview on VICE while talking about his music, the influence and spread of Afrobeats in the global scene.
He 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.
