Chukwuka Ekeani, Nigerian singer better known as Ckay, has revealed that he’s not signed to Chocolate City, a record label co-founded by Audu Maikori.
The musician is believed to have joined the production team of the record label as an intern in 2015.
Later in the year, he was said to have been signed into Loopy Music, another record label, which would later merge with Chocolate City at the time when M.I Abaga became its chief executive officer.
He was said to have been officially signed into Chocolate City in 2016 and would release numerous projects under the label including ‘CKay The First’, his 2019 EP.
But in a Twitter post on Tuesday, the ‘Felony’ crooner revealed that he’s signed to Warner Music South Africa, an African division of the Warner Music Group.
His comment had come as a reaction to a user who was reflecting on the synergy between him and Davido as well as other members of his 30BG.
The user had said with the partnership between the pair, one would think Ckay is signed into DMW and not Chocolate City.
“30GB (be) supporting Ckay you’d think he is signed to DMW and not Chocolate City,” the user wrote.
In his response, however, Ckay wrote: “I’m not signed to CC. I am signed to Warner Music South Africa. @Davido &30BG supporting me is called love! It’s not about labels.”

The fast-rising singer added that Davido and the pool of talents in his label are merely supporting his musical career as friends.
The 26-year-old musician, however, did not mention if he was previously signed by Chocolate City.
Checks by TheCable Lifestyle showed that he is indeed signed into Warner Music South Africa as he is among artistes listed by the label on its website.
The singer has continued to pull the strings since the release of ‘Love Nwantiti’, a hit single.
He recently featured in the visuals of ‘La La’, a track off ‘A Better Time’, Davido’s fourth studio album.
