CKay Biography

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.
