CKay Artists


CKay is a Nigerian singer and record producer who began his musical journey quite early – reportedly at 7. His father was a choir leader who introduced CKay to the world of music.

At 13, CKay started producing beats and writing songs for a Christian group. His obsession with music was so intense that he ran away from home to continue chasing his musical dreams.

In Lagos, where he moved in 2014, he was signed as a production intern with Loopy Music. This record label would merge with Chocolate City soon after, allowing CKay to work with some notable names, including Dice Ailes, Ice Prince, MI Abaga, and Kenya’s Victoria Kimani.
