In other news, Ckayย has declared that he opposes the notion of 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.

According to The โ€˜ Nwantitiโ€™ crooner, the genre is the new pop, and the culture can expand to become even more than it is already, much like how Hip Hop culture did.
