Ckay also shared the announcement on his verified Instagram page.

‘Emiliana’ had achieved gold certification in France in April after selling 100,000 copies of the song in the country.

The singer has already achieved double platinum status in France with his worldwide hit ‘Love Nwantiti’ from 2019.

‘Love Nwantiti’ garnered more than two billion views on TikTok and 500 million more on YouTube. The song has also charted on six continents, reaching No. 1 in India, Norway and Switzerland.

Ckay’s fans had expressed disappointment last week when his hits, Emiliana and Love Nwantiti, failed to make the 2022 Headies nomination list.

However, the singer had promised his fans that his album, which is due out later this year, will make history.
