“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.”
