Congratulations are in order for Afrobeats star CKay whose TikTok anthem and global hit song “Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)” has earned him his first plaque – a BRIT Certified Silver plaque following its sales of 200,000 units.
CKay’s “Love Nwantiti” was released in 2019 as one of the tracks off his “Ckay The First” EP.
It made a hit comeback in 2021 after a viral TikTok challenge and multiple versions, bringing it back to the top of many worldwide charts, earning him his first Billboard Hot 100 entry and a well-deserved place as Billboard’s November Chartbreaker for the year.
“My first plaque 💿🇬🇧💜✨,” CKay wrote on Instagram as he announced the amazing news.
CKay recently released the official video for the North America remix of “Love Nwantiti” featuring ElGrandeToto. Watch the video below:
