songwriter Nkiru Nkemdilim Akpom (born August 23rd, 1994) known by her
stage name ‘Nkay’ is set to take the Afrobeats industry by storm.
Born and raised in East London, UK to Nigerian parents, from an Igbo
decent, she uses her collection of styles from the Hip/Hop and R&B
culture, combining it with her traditional “Igbo Kwenu” (“Kweswenu!!”)
persona…giving you a peculiar sound.
Working with the legendary beat-maker and artist ‘BoatzMadeIt’ who has
created hits such as ‘Kwamz & Flava – ‘Wo Onane No’; Mr Silva – ‘Naija
Baby’ ‘All Out’ ‘Diva’ & ‘Like It’; Mover ft Sonaman – ‘Everything is
sweet’ and Raschelle Blue’s ‘Mempe BasaBasa’ -!: many more..
Shakara is catchy, an anthem like song with a feisty feel to it and
defiantly one to blast in your speakers wherever you are. It is a song
highlights a woman’s past with a guy who as Nkay would say “dey do
Shakara” (guy showing off)
The ‘Shakara’ singer will be bringing you more exciting sounds later this year!
