Joeboy, a renowned stage name for Joseph Akinfenwa Donus, a Nigerian singer, has admitted that being on the remix of his colleague CKay’s international hit song “Love Nwantiti” earned him a sizable sum of money.
According to 460play, in 2019 CKay collaborated with Joeboy and Ghanaian musician Kwame Eugene to remake his popular song “Love Nwantiti.”
According to Joeboy, who recently released a new edition of his audiovisual podcast Body & Soul, he only agreed to be in the song because he likes CKay.
He claimed that when someone else turned him down, CKay requested him to join the song.
The money Love Nwantiti handed me, “bruh, bruh, that song changed the lives of everyone on it,” he exclaimed. I always give thanks to God for just one thing. I genuinely jumped on that tune, thank God. Every time I play the music, I simply thank my Gee (Ckay) with joy.
“CKay got in touch with me to let me know that he was attempting to get someone on the song but they weren’t responding in a timely manner. That happened around the year’s end. To be really honest, I only joined that song because I enjoy CKay. The music wasn’t the topic. At that point, I suddenly blew up, and everyone tried to use me as a talking point.
According to Chart Data, the song “Love Nwantiti” by CKay has received over 2 billion streams overall across all platforms and has sold over 20 million copies globally.
