Unlike others who pitch their tent with a single entertainer, CKay has made a shocking plea concerning Nigerian’s currently trending musical acts.
Nigerian musician, CKay had to get a few things off his chest regarding the music industry and fans in a lengthy Twitter thread he put up in his page.
The ‘Love Nwatintin’ crooner paid homage to the trio of Burna Boy, Davido and Wizkid for their contribution to the Nigerian music industry.
Ckay shared that he gets upset when he sees folks on Twitter making comparisons and disrespecting these G.O.A.Ts, noting that they paved the way for the ones behind them.
He added that each of them has taught the ones coming behind unquantifiable lessons in passion, grit and success in their careers.
CKay unlike many other Nigerians who are quick to support one musician to the detriment of another said it’s possible to hype an artiste without dragging the other down. He tweeted:
“Before my album drops I need to get some things off my chest…
When I see people disrespecting our G.O.A.Ts on this app or making silly comparisons, it actually upsets me.
Give your G.O.A.Ts 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.”
