Black history month is upon us! Here at the school we love to use this month to shine a light on amazing Black artists around the world!
This year we’ve chosen to to focus on current Black musicians creating extraordinary art.
Introducing Singer and producer CKay from Nigeria.
CKay describes his music as “Afro-Pop from the future” and combines elements of Dancehall, Rap, Pop, R and B
If you are unfamiliar with the genre of Afrobeat check out this short documentary here!
CKay’s 2019 single “Love Nwantiti” became a viral hit world wide and was particularly huge as a dance song on Tik Tok! We love his smooth vocals and raspy tone.
His latest release is a feature on a song by Ayra Starr entitled Beggie Beggie. It offers a more emotional sound than “Love Nwantiti” and showcases CKay’s diversity as an artist.
Hit play, enjoy the infectious rhythms and thank us later.
