In 2019, following the release of his second EP ‘CKay the First’, ‘Love Nwantiti’ became a major record in Nigeria.

In February 2020, CKay released a remix titled “Love Nwantiti (Ah Ah Ah)” featuring Joeboy and Kuami Eugene.

In 2021, it went viral on TikTok and became an international hit, charting across Europe, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. It also reached number 23 in the UK and earned him his first entry on the US Billboard Hot 100.
