In other news, Ckay has declared that he opposes the notion of Afrobeats artists boasting about being superior to their contemporaries.
He claimed that if all Nigerian musicians worked together to promote one another rather than making comparisons, they would all advance in their careers more.
In a recent interview with VICE, CKay made this claim when discussing his music, the effect of Afrobeats, and its growth over the world.
