I know many DAVIDO fans will say what is this one saying? or ask questions like is he mad or out of his mind or probably say am high. It’s okay anyhow you sees it, now hear me out.
With all the power and achievement the young man has receive from DAVIDO do you still think he still need to be under anything like “D.M.W” ? No that will be like struggling back to the mud after making it through clean water.. Lol.
Now come to think of it LIL KESH, KIZZ DANIEL, REEKADO BANKS and many other young stars didn’t get as much as the recognition and power this young lad (MAYORKUN) possessed. yet they where still able to stand on their own. like the case of KIZZ DANIEL there were little trouble while he was leaving is former label (G-WORLDWIDE) but that still didn’t stop the artist from pushing his career alone. REEKADO BANKS AND LIL KESH left former label without stress and they are still doing fine on their own. now tell me how long do you think this young man is going to shine with DAVIDO’S light?
Now standing on his own does not mean breaking affiliation with his boss, but this will only give a new phase where he can grow to becoming an A-list like his boss (DAVIDO). The controversy of leaving the label will also be an important selling point for him and coupled with his great talent the artist will spark fire as he is already called THE MAYOR OF LAGOS.
Without any form of arguments MAYORKUN is the highest rated artist from the label (D.M.W.) this is already what we know. For the sake of those fans who will want to come for my head for this here is what i have to tell you DAVIDO will only earn more respect and love when his artists become a boss of their own.
Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel (born March 23, 1994), known professionally as Mayorkun, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter and pianist. He was discovered on twitter by Davido when he posted a cover of one of Davido’s songs “The Money” featuring Olamide. He was later signed to Davido’s DMW in 2016 and released his first single called “Eleko”.
Mayowa decided to leave his bank job to search for another due to bad pay, when his cover video was spotted by Davido in February 2016. Davido followed him on twitter and Instagram, after which Davido asked him if he can do more than play the keyboard. He got a call from Davido the same day he wrote his resignation letter and sent Davido some of the songs he already recorded.
Davido decided to sign him to Davido Music Worldwide. Mayowa released his first single under the label called “Eleko” in 2016. The video of the song gathered a million views in the first 10 days.
