CKay is a Nigerian singer and record producer who began his musical journey quite early – reportedly at 7. His father was a choir leader who introduced CKay to the world of music.
At 13, CKay started producing beats and writing songs for a Christian group. His obsession with music was so intense that he ran away from home to continue chasing his musical dreams.
In Lagos, where he moved in 2014, he was signed as a production intern with Loopy Music. This record label would merge with Chocolate City soon after, allowing CKay to work with some notable names, including Dice Ailes, Ice Prince, MI Abaga, and Kenya’s Victoria Kimani.
From a producer at Chocolate City, he was formally signed as an artist at the record label. Soon after his signing, he released his debut EP, “Who The Fuck Is CKay.”
While it is possible, peeps might have been asking who he was back then; the questions are barely coming these days. CKay is now a famous artist with several impressive numbers, including “Love Nwantiti.”
The songster sees himself as the future of afrobeat. He hadn’t taken the singing thing too seriously at the outset, describing himself as just a bedroom musician, but now he lives for music and enjoys creating beats every minute. But, more than that, he sees himself as a creator of the piece of the future.
CKay’s real or given name is Chukwuka Ekweani. Translated from the Igbo, the name means “God has spoken, and we believe.” The name somehow affirms his parents’ faith in his birth.
CKay was born in July 1995, so he’s currently 26 years. On his birthday each year, his fans would celebrate him with messages on social media.
Peeps often ask which country CKay is from. Some would say outright that he’s South Africa. This is probably because he shares the same stage name with a South African artist.
Anyway, CKay is a Nigerian. He was born in Kaduna city of Kaduna state in northern Nigeria, but he’s an Igbo from Anambra state.
According to reports, CKay owns a home in the Beverly Hills area of California.
CKay must have an impressive car collection; he does not flaunt them on socials, making it tough to tell what whip he pushes.
In matters of net worth, CKay is not a citizen of noise. The dude would rather keep quiet about his acquisitions. But he’s doing well all the same. Industry insiders peg his net worth at $2 Million.
Mr. Ekweani, an Anambra native living in Kaduna, is Ckay’s father. Ckay’s father was a choir director and church keyboardist. Apart from that, little is known about his father.
Mrs. Daisy Ekweani, who also hails from Anambra State, is Ckay’s mother. Ckay’s mother graduated from Ahmadu Bello University after attending Girls Secondary School in Oba, Anambra State.
CKay was born into a household of six children. He is his parents’ last child. CKay has two elder brothers and three elder sisters.
A musician of CKay’s appeal and fame would not lack attention from the girls. Yes? Although he’s a famous artist, nothing is known about the woman in his life. The songster appears to be in the league of artists who would rather keep their relationships under wraps.
Although he’s been private about his relationship, one clear thing is that he’s not married yet.
