You know the popular saying ‘ask and you shall receive?’ Well, that’s exactly what Mayorkun did when he took to Twitter Feb 1st 2016 to ask Davido for help in a 14 seconds clip. Mayorkun posted a clip of himself singing The Money by Olamide and Davido while playing the keyboard. Davido reached out to him and the rest, as they say is history

After winning Rookie Of The Year at the 2016 Headies, Mayorkun has hardly missed the mark when it comes to churning out hits. Since his controversial debut single (he was accused of buying YouTube views) Eleko, the DMW affiliate has proven critics wrong.
If 2016 was his rookie year, 2017 was when he solidified himself as a budding star. From Sade to Mama to Che Che, Mayorkun has shown that he can hang with the big boys.
He went on a University tour and headlined his first major concert, The Mayor Of Lagos. 2018 hasn’t proven different either, his single Bobo featuring Davido is already getting massive airplay and he just won the Next Rated award at the 12th edition of the Headies.
Although Mayorkun is yet to drop his full body of work, but judging by the single he’s put out since his debut, it’s only safe to say he’s coming for the top spot soon.
