Fast-rising singer, Chukwuka Ekweani, popularly known as Ckay, has received another global recognition as his hit single ‘Emiliana’ bags platinum certification in France.
The Syndicat National de l’Édition Phonographique (National Syndicate of Phonographic Publishing), the professional organisation in charge of French records, made this known on their official Instagram page on Tuesday.
According to the announcement, Ckay’s song got the certification after getting an equivalent of 30 million streams in France.
Ckay also shared the announcement on his verified Instagram page.
‘Emiliana’ had bagged a gold certification in France in April after he sold 100,000 units of the song in the country.
The singer has already achieved double platinum certification in France with his global smash hit ‘Love Nwantiti’.
‘Love Nwantiti’ garnered over two billion views on TikTok and 500 million more on YouTube. The song has also charted on six continents, hitting No. 1 in India, Norway, and Switzerland.
Ckay’s fans had expressed disappointment last week when his hit songs, Emiliana and Love Nwantiti, didn’t make the 2022 Headies nomination list.
However, the singer had promised his fans that his album, scheduled to be released later this year, will make history.
Three weeks ago, Ckay became the only Nigerian to make the 2022 Time‘s Next Generation Leaders list.
The Time‘s Next Generation Leaders list recognises young people from across fields and around the globe “who are working to build a better world”.
Time described Ckay as one of the most successful African recording artists ever on a global scale.
