Popular singer Chukwuka Ekweani aka CKay has opened up on the impact the collaboration with Afrobeats superstar, Davido had on his musical career.

Speaking in an interview On Zoom ‘Speak Easy’ in India where he recently performed his global hits ‘Love Nwantiti’ and ‘Emiliana’ to thousands of his Indian fans, CKay affirmed collaboration with Davido greatly influenced his success musically.

He confessed it happened at the point in his career when he needed the support of an already established artiste.

He noted that O.B.O willingly availed himself to give his career ‘that push’ in the direction of success which he now enjoys.

When asked if the collaboration with Davido was the landmark point where things took off for him in his musical career, the 27-year-old  “Emo-Afrobeats” singer stated: “The collaboration with Davido was extremely important in my opinion because I feel like at that time, I needed a ‘cosign’, you know what I mean, from like someone who was very established. And Davido was more than happy to do that.

“And you know… Yeah, we literally just met through that song and we kind of built a friendship from there. Not just with him but with his team as well. We all have a great relationship

“And I feel like that definitely played a huge role in my success and I’m always going to acknowledge that. And shoutout to Davido always.

On 13 November 2020, CKay appeared on the song “La La” from Davido’s third studio album ‘ABetter Time’, released through Davido Music Worldwide, RCA Records, and Sony Music.

On 17 June 2022, he released “Watawi”, featuring Davido, Focalistic, and Abidoza, which peaked at number 13 on Nigeria’s ‘TurnTable Top 50’ and was accompanied by a music video, directed by Dalia Dias
