Popular Nigerian singer, Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel better known as Mayorkun, has revealed why he didn’t feature his former record label boss, Davido, in his new album.
Mayorkun got signed to Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) in 2016 and worked closely with Davido for years. However, rumour has it that he quietly exited the record label recently and his contract was not renewed.
His newly released album ‘Back in Office’ also confirms that he is no longer with DMW because it was not promoted by the label and their logo is not on the album cover.
The self-acclaimed ‘Mayor of Lagos’ held a listening party for his new album recently and had a chat with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu.
When asked why Davido was not featured in the album, Mayorkun said;
“Most people don’t know how creating an album works; sometimes, it’s a groups of songs you’ve had way back and just compile together.
“The songs that we have together I don’t feel like it’s for this album but for a later time.
“I and Davido have songs together and it is not a situation that I took out his song for my album.”
The Listening party was attended by former and current DMW signees as well as Davido.
