Comparing Me To Davido, Burna Boy, Wizkid Is Disrespectful – CKay


Budding Afrobeats singer, Chukwuka Ekweani, popularly known as CKay, has urged fans to stop disrespecting leading industry artistes, Wizkid, Davido and Burna Boy.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday August 24, the artiste also talked about fans comparing him to the trio, describing the comparisons as ‘silly.’

Ckay revealed different things he learnt from Davido, Burna Boy and Wizkid individually as they’re trend setters.

The Emiliano crooner said Burna Boy showed him that when ones time to succeed is delayed, it does not mean that it is denied.

According to him, the DMW boss made him realise that with Afrobeats, it is possible to get international plaques.

Speaking about Wizkid, Ckay said that Starboy showed him that ones background does not determine how far the person can go.

He appealed to Nigerians to accord each of them their respect and accolades while they are still alive because they paved the way for others like him.

Ckay further said that Afrobeats is one of the things giving citizens joy and as such everyone need to show love to one another.

He stressed that fans can hype their favourite artiste without having to bring down others that are also doing well.

In his words; ‘‘When I see people disrespecting our 🐐s on this app or making silly comparisons, it actually upsets me. Give your 🐐s their flowers while they’re still here! They paved the way!

Davido showed me that getting plaques with afrobeat songs is possible, Wizkid showed me that where you come from doesn’t limit how far you can go, and Burna Boy showed me that delay is not denial.

Back in my CC days, Dice Ailes and I created a sound that birthed a whole new wave of afrobeats. It’s so funny how today some people twist the narrative and say we copied a sound we created lol.

At the end of the day we’re all just playing our roles. One day we’ll all die and it won’t matter anymore. Afrobeats is one of the few things giving us joy in this country. Let’s just love and support our own. It’s possible to hype your fave without putting down another artist.”
