Nigerian singer and DMW act, Mayorkun has revealed that meeting Davido was a blessing to him and doesn’t think it will be quite easy for him to forget the day he met the African pop sensation.
Mayorkun, who met Davido after he uploaded a video of himself playing the piano to one of the latter’s songs on social media, dished to Sunday Scoop that it had been nothing but bliss since he came in contact with the self-acclaimed OBO.
“I will continue to remember the day I met Davido for good. He has really been a blessing to me and I will always appreciate him. He is a very good person because he didn’t know me from Adam before offering me a deal with his label. Even when I tell people how our paths crossed, they don’t believe. He took me as a brother from day one and he has been very instrumental to the growth of my career.”
On the advice his mother gave him at the outset of his career, Mayorkun said:
“She just told me to always remember the son of who I am and to stay true to myself. She warned me not to live a fake life but to be focused on my career. As someone who has been in the entertainment industry for a while, her advice is very valuable to me and I make sure to follow it. I am very close to my mother and I don’t do anything without her.”
Speaking on what inspires him as an artiste, Mayorkun said:
“I am largely inspired by the things I see around me. I like to sing about things that people can relate with; I get material from the things that happen around me.”
