Joseph Akinfenwa Donus, the popular Nigerian singer, who is more widely known as Joeboy, has revealed that he made a lot of money from being featured on the remix of his colleague, CKay’s global smash, ‘Love Nwantiti’.
Recall that CKay remixed his hit song ‘Love Nwantiti’ with Joeboy and Ghanaian singer, Kwame Eugene in 2019.
Speaking on the latest episode of his audiovisual podcast, Body & Soul, Joeboy said he only accepted to be on the song because he likes CKay.
He said CKay asked him to jump on the song after someone else turned him down.
He said, “The money Love Nwantiti gave me bruh, bruh that song changed the lives of everybody on it. That is one thing I always thank God for. Thank God, I actually jumped on that song. Anytime I play the song, I just dey happy say thank you my Gee (Ckay).
“CKay reached out to me that he was trying to get somebody on the song, but the person was not responding on time. That was like the end of 2019. To be honest, the only reason I jumped on that song was because I just like CKay. It wasn’t about the song. That time, I just blew up and everybody was trying to drag me for features.”
CKay’s ‘Love Nwantiti’ has over 2 billion combined streams across all platforms, with over 20 million units sold worldwide, according to Chart Data.
