The ‘Eleko’ singer, Mayorkun said that if not for Davido, he would still be working in the bank, saving up to record his first single.
“It was just so coincidental that the day I signed my resignation letter was the day David gave me the call about me signing on to DMW. It wasn’t that my decision was to leave that banking job to start up music,”
“Obviously if Davido had not called me, I would have been in the other bank collecting better pay, better than the old one, then I would be trying to save up my bar (money) so I could record my first song.”
Mayorkun got huge recognition for his hit single Eleko, which gained one million YouTube video views, within a week of release.
On March 3, 2016, Davido announced Mayorkun’s signing to the HKN gang and Davido Music Worldwide imprint.
