The most streamed African artist on Spotify and Tik-Tok, CKay releases new song “By Your Side” which features Blxckie to detty music fans’ playlist this festive period. Song produced by Andrew Phoswa.
“When I make music, it’s like I’m immortalizing the experiences and people I sing about,” says CKay. “I was in love and I literally freestyled the song in my living room back in 2019. ‘Love Nwantiti’ means ‘small love’ in Igbo — my native language. The other parts of the song are in [West African] pidgin English.
I call my genre emo-Afrobeats, because I put a lot of my emotional energy into it. My music is like my diary. I talk about my romantic experiences and people from all around the world are connecting with that. I’m proud of the fact that a failed relationship that had me heartbroken for months turned into something that is moving hearts around the whole world.”
This new song “By Your Side” is a perfect blend of Emo, Afrobeat and Amapiano. Ckay and Blxckie delivered an addictive dance tune that will make a good replay on playlists and burst your speakers.
