The message from CKay to Western fans and songwriters is that “Afrobeat Is Not Just a Trend to Jump On, It’s a Culture.”
The rapidly rising afrobeat artist CKay blasts anyone who consistently contrasts the prominence or popularity of different Nigerian singers. The musician suggested that afrobeat performers unite as a single force to push for worldwide dominance rather than constantly comparing themselves to one another. Afrobeat, according to CKay, is the new pop and should be studied as a culture rather than merely a passing fad for western musicians.
In a recent interview, the widely respected artist CKay made unflinching claims regarding the afrobeat music genre, which has its roots in Nigeria. He claimed that it is the new pop and has a distinct culture. Throughout the interview, CKay criticized everyone who consistently makes a case for who is a better singer or artist. He suggested that everyone support one another and enjoy the music rather than making comparisons.
The Emiliano crooner went on to say that afrobeat has the potential to have the same kind of worldwide impact as hip-hop culture.
Afrobeat is embraced by the West. Ckay, the lead vocalist of the band Boyfriend, cautioned Western fans and musicians who wish to adopt afrobeat that it is not only a trend to follow but rather a culture with a rich history.
Additionally, according to CKay, in order to fully relate to the music, anyone interested in the genre must learn the culture and comprehend where it originated.
The first Billboard U.S. Afrobeats music charts had the Nigerian singer CKay’s song Love Nwantiti at the top, according to korrectvibes.
The 50 most popular Afrobeats songs in the US were listed by the Billboard U.S. Afrobeats Songs chart, which debuted on Tuesday, March 29. Love Nwantiti by CKay received 4.7 million official US streams during the tracking week of March 18–24, according to Luminate, previously MRC Data.
