Video: Portable is two times bigger than Ckay – Singer, Jaywon



Nigerian singer, Jaywon has said that street-hop crooner, Portable is twice as big as Afropop artiste, CKay in Nigeria.

He made the comparison while talking about the growth and popularity of CKay on Jahbless Original Intelligence podcast.

Jahbless revealed that Ckay is the Nigerian artiste with the highest number of subscribers on YouTube, beating industry giants like Wizkid and Burna Boy.

He also opined that the Love Nwantiti hit-maker is not big in the country and Jaywon agreed, adding that Portable is bigger than him in two folds.

They went on to wonder why Ckay is having large streaming numbers and followership despite not being the biggest artiste, and Jaywon said that it is because Afrobeats is now global and not restricted to Nigeria.

Jaywon, in a bid to buttress his point said his biggest song on Spotify is being streamed the most by fans in Auckland and Australia.

He reiterated Ckay is very popular outside the country because the Afrobeats as a genre is off Nigeria and now a globally accepted form of music.

The artiste’s hit single, Love Nwantiti released in 2019, just peaked at the top spot on Spotify Worldwide.

It is the Most-Streamed Nigerian Song ever on the global streaming platform with a total of 537 million streams.

CKay took to his Twitter account to react to the development by expressing gratitude, and announcing that his album will soon drop.
