Months after speculations about Mayorkun’s new deal with Sony Music, the UK arm of the global music company has confirmed officially welcomed the former DMW superstar.
The music company, in a tweet, endorsed Mayorkun’s addition, and the ‘Eleko’ crooner responded to corroborate his new deal with Columbia Records, a subsidiary of Sony Music.
“Welcome to the Sony Music family, @IamMayorKun,” Sony Music UK shared alongside a picture of Mayorkun posing beside Columbia records logo.
Mayorkun, in another tweet, shared beautiful images of himself exchanging pleasantries with his new executives. “Family @ColumbiaUK,” he captioned the photos.
Earlier this month, Mayorkun released his sophomore album titled ‘Back In Office’ via Sony Music Entertainment / Columbia Records UK. The album is a twelve-track LP featuring both his 2021 singles, ‘Let Me Know’ and ‘Back In Office’.
Mayorkun made a massive entry into the music scene with a chart-topping debut solo single ‘Eleko’ in 2016, and has emerged as one of the most exciting artists from Lagos in recent times.
The 27-year-old has since dropped several hits including ‘Mama’, ‘Che Che’, ‘Bobo’ featuring Davido, ‘Up To Something’, ‘Geng’ and ‘Of Lagos’.
