How I almost missed chance of meeting Davido – Mayorkun Shares Life Changing Moment



Renowned Afrobeat musician Mayorkun talks about how he nearly removed the cover video that made him famous and how sharing it on social media put him in contact with Davido.

In the most recent episode of the Tea With Tay podcast hosted by actor Temisan Emmanuel Ahwieh, a.k.a Taymesan, the former DMW signee disclosed that he had a job at a bank in 2016

Mayorkun claims that because of his phone’s limited memory, he nearly erased a cover video he had made of himself doing a piano cover.

Rather than just wiping it from his phone, he chose to publish it to his Twitter account while he was working at a bank.

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.”
