Davido, Nigeria’s hitmaker, has shared to the public how he met and signed Mayorkun changing his life from being a distressed banker to the great musician we all see today.
From the post he shared, he asked Mayorkun to send him any song he had. He obviously liked what he sent and went straight ahead to tell him he will sign him. He also requested for his contact showing how serious he was.
True to his words, Davido signed Mayorkun to his Davido Music Worldwide label and the rest is history.
See their chat below.
This only comes to confirm Mayorkun’s part of the story he told a while back about his meeting with Davido.
Read his part below.
“On Twitter. I was bored at the office, a bank, one day; just while I was pressing my phone, I impulsively posted a video I had recorded, where I was playing the keyboard of one of Davido’s songs, The Money, on Twitter.
I wasn’t expecting anything. It was on a Friday and I was supposed to resume work in another bank the following Monday. Well, Davido retweeted the video. And he later sent me a direct message asking if I had other things I did besides playing the keyboard. I told him I had some songs. I sent like six songs. He liked one of them.
He said if he came back from ATL (Atlanta, Georgia, USA) he will sign me on. He collected my WhatsApp number. Because I was shaking, I typed a wrong number.”
