The Highly Anticipated EP, Boyfriend by CKay is finally out and Available for your consumption!
Singer-songwriter and producer CKay used the downtime afforded by Nigeria’s lockdown to record his Boyfriend EP, inspired by multiple guitar genres and living up to its title by showcasing his romantic side.
Chukwuka Ekweani, known publicly as CKay is the rising star in the ever-burgeoning Afrobeats scene. A multi-talented artist, whether behind the boards as a producer or in front of the mic performing his self-penned songs, it is CKay’s single-minded vision that shines through.
Boyfriend The EP consists of 7 tracks (5 new songs and 2 lead singles; ‘Felony‘ & ‘Kiss Me Like You Miss Me‘), with features; Amaare, Bianca Costa, Oxlade and KiDi. It got quality productions from, Auxxie, BMH, Type A and Ckay himself.

The artist goes full-on lover boy in his declaration of adoration for “Isabella”, laid over a bouncy Afrofusion beat. Elsewhere, he experiments with Spanish guitar chords on the lamenting “Jeje de Whine” and acoustic strings on “Show My Side”, which features alternative pop vocalist Amaarae. But it’s lead single “Felony” that’s the jewel in CKay’s crown. Merging an Afrobeats backbone with tinges of folk violin and Pidgin lyrics, it’s inspired by a special someone he was FaceTiming with quite a bit during lockdown.
Based On the buzz and positive vibe of this project Ckay shared… “I made Afrobeats in my own different way, told stories of my experiences and expressed my emotions in melodies. My team believed in my sound, we put it out and in 24 hours Boyfriend is NUMBER ONE in the country!!! I have the best fans/supporters in the world no cap! WE DID THIS! Thank you guys!
