Famous Afrobeat singer, Mayorkun opens up on how he almost deleted the cover video that brought him fame and how posting it on social media connected him to Davido.
During the latest episode of the Tea With Tay podcast, hosted by actor Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, a.k.a Taymesan, the ex-DMW signee revealed that he once worked at a bank in 2016.
According to Mayorkun, he had recorded a cover video of himself freestyling while playing a keyboard and almost deleted the clip due to low memory storage on his phone.
While at work in a bank, he decided to back it up on his Twitter account by simply uploading it instead of simply deleting it off his phone.
Lo and behold, the video went viral and it was at that point that Mayorkun was discovered by Davido and immediately followed who would become a significant signee of DMW Records.
In his words, “One of my mum’s friends gave me an iPhone 6 with a small memory size and I had that video on it and wanted to delete it to free up some space. Something told me to put it on Twitter and it least, e go dey Twitter if e no dey your phone.
I posted it and noticed my phone buzzing inside the bank wey I dey vex. It was one weekend I went to ACCA classes. Davido liked and followed.”
