Nigerian singer and Warner South Africa act, Ckay recorded his first Billboard Hot 100 debut after his viral hit song, ‘Love Nwantiti’ hit No. 80 on the Billboard Hot 100.
‘Love Nwantiti’ has become the 2nd Nigerian song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2021 after Wizkid’s ‘Essence.’
Earlier this month, the song broke the competition to become the No. 1 song on Shazam’s global charts.
The song sits above global smash hits from major superstars like ‘Stay‘ by Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber, which is currently the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100. It also sits above global anthems from Lil Nas X, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Dua Lipa, J Balvin, The Weekend, and more.
The version of 'Love Nwantiti' which sits atop the charts features Axel and DJ Yo.
The song was initially released on Ckay's sophomore EP, Ckay. The song blew up when its video version featured Joeboy and Kuami Eugene. Ckay has since created several remixes of the record for mileage.
The singer has since released another EP, left Chocolate City and got himself signed to Warner Music Group, South Africa.
