CKay’s Hit Track ‘Love Nwantiti’ Gets Certified Gold In The US

Published

On January 10, 2022, the worldwide popular song ‘Love Nwantiti’ by Nigerian musician CKay was certified Gold in the United States. This happened after the album was declared Gold in the United Kingdom and France.

In 2020, the record surpassed chart streams all over the world, topping key charts. This made history, establishing CKay as Africa’s most popular musician on Spotify. In the United States, such prestigious movements as obtaining the Gold Plaque occur when an album sells the equivalent of 500,000 copies through streaming and raw CD sales.

The hit tune “Love Nwantiti” was first published by Chocolate City in 2019, but a year later, a remix featuring Joeboy and Kwami Eugene was released, and it quickly became a hit.

The original version of the hit song ‘Love Nwantiti,’ not the remix, made ripples in the United States, earning him the Gold Plaque.

“When I came here, I had a master plan,” he remarked of his road to the limelight when he arrived in Lagos in 2014. I had the ability to both produce and write. He continues, “At one point, that was all I had to offer.” He had to develop and write for a long before publishing his own tracks, which brought him to Chocolate City and then Warner Music in 2020.

Made Kuti, son of Afrobeat maestro, Femi Kuti, has bagged his first Grammy nominations.

The grandson of Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, earned his first nominations at the 64th Grammy Awards as his father bagged his fifth Grammy nomination.

The nominations for the 64th Grammy awards were announced on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, by the Recording Academy. Made Kuti, alongside his father, made the cut for the nominations in one of the 86 categories for the 2022 GRAMMYs Awards.

Made Kuti and Femi Kuti’s joint album, ‘Legacy +,’ was nominated for the Best Global Music Album at The 64th Grammys. The Kutis were nominated in the same category alongside Angelique Kidjo for her album, ‘Mother Nature,’ Rocky Dawumi for the album, ‘Voice of Bunbon Volume 1,’ and Wizkid for his album, ‘Made In Lagos.’

Reacting to the feat, Made Kuti said, “My mind is blown!! A Grammy nomination from my debut album! All those years I spent practicing all those instruments by myself to record an album, I would play every instrument in by myself! Notating the music, recording it, editing it! Thank you to everyone that was involved.”

Made makes his mark as the third Kuti to earn a Grammy nomination. Neither his father, Femi nor his uncle, Seun Kuti, have won the award.

Earlier in 2021, the rising Afrobeat musician scooped his first award nomination at the All Africa Music Awards. Made earned a nomination in the Best artiste, duo, or group in the African jazz category. The singer’s song, Free Your Mind, earned him the nomination.

Other nominees in the category are Nigeria’s Tomi Owo and Olu, South Africa’s Thandi Ntuli, Zoe Modiga, and Bokani Dyer, Cameroon’s Franck Biyong, Kenya’s Hornsphere, Mozambique’s Jimmy Dludlu.

Made, the first son of Femi Kuti and Funke Kuti has been walking on a familiar and family path of music since he was young. He was a member of his father’s Positive Force band for a while after he graduated from London’s Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2018.
