Over the recent years, Chike has been consistently churning out great songs, he typically embodies the new standard of Nigerian music.
Chike solidifies his name after his debut studio album titled Boo of the Booless, a 14 track album that was a strong contender for the album of the year in 2020.

However, Chike geared up as he infused great sound and lyrical delivery into his craft as he normally does it.
Chike follows the trend of not following a trend of regular music that transcends artists into the mainstream without much hassle, the sound seems to be very hard with the usual Nigerian squawk production, which is designed to aim for the streets and clubs.
His ability to pull an emotional tone in balancing the mood is such a genius, there is always peace within whenever you’re glued to his song.

Also, It is sad but true to admit that serious music doesn’t get much attention, prior to placing a higher emphasis on the sound over the lyrics, on this occurrence, it’s regarded as a classy kind of music, not particularly for everyone unless a depict of uncommon musical taste.
The track ‘If You No Love‘ being able to crack the market regardless of not being squawk’s usual sound, dominating the airwaves and streets across Nigeria and beyond the continent, it’s quite applaudable.
Chike however, teamed up with Mayorkun for the remix of ‘If You No Love‘ accompanied with very clean visuals, Mayorkun on the other hand delivered a stellar verse to compliment the already hit smash single.
Also, his recent collaboration with Simi, “Running to You’ peaked at number 19 on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart.
