Nigerian singer, Kingsley Okonkwo, professionally known as Kcee, has disclosed that the profits from his collaborative gospel album, “Cultural Praise,” with Okwesili Eze Group, exceed the earnings from his whole secular music career.
The ‘Limpopo’ made this disclosure while being interviewed on Cool 96.9 FM, Lagos.
According to Kcee who is signed to his brother’s label Five Star Music, the gospel album is his most streamed work to date.
The artist claimed that after he released the album, many people wrote him off since they thought his career was over.
However, he claimed that even before the project was released, he knew it would be a commercial success.
“When I did the gospel [album] and a lot of people were like, ‘It’s over, he is actually going close to his village. Now he’s taking the music to the village.’
That was horrible. When I heard that I was like, okay, let’s see how that works. And it didn’t happen. I made more money from it [the gospel album]; more than any ever before in my whole career.”
