The Nigerian Music Industry is definitely not a bed of roses. Over the years, we have seen many artistes who started at a good pace but later had reasons to quit, while some also started so well and have continued to thrive ever since.
On the list of those who have continued to maintain relevance is none other than Mayorkun!!! His talent and hard work are glaring in the kind of works he has produced over the years.
With this, based on popular demand, we bring you a selection of his top 5 songs from 2016 – 2020
Eleko is the official first song of the music star, Mayorkun. It was released in the year 2016 and produced by Puffy Tee under the DMW Record label owned by Davido. He was discovered by the DMW boss, Davido on Twitter where Mayorkun uploaded a cover of Davido’s hit song back then “The Money” which featured Olamide, YBNL Boss. “Eleko” won the Nigerian Teen Choice Award For Choice New Song Of The Year.
After the release of “Eleko”, the superstar came up with another scintillating hit ” Mama” which was released in the year 2017 making it the second hit single from the artiste. The good vibes that came along with the song was exquisite, it made the word “love” easy to comprehend. The hit single won the Headies Award for producer of the year.
3. Up to Something:
This was a jam that made fans of Mayorkun trip for his diversity and uniqueness. It was released in 2019 and produced by SperoachBeatz. The Mayor of Lagos came up with this song to praise and inspire women to be true to themselves no matter what was coming their way, it is a song every lady should listen to.
Ayyyyeeee! Now this is still currently making waves on all major playlists. Released earlier this year, making it a new year gift for his fans. The song is used to classify various kind of people by grouping them into ‘gangs’. ‘Geng’ is no doubt a total vibe!!
5. Of Lagos:
Fresh from the oven, ‘Of Lagos’ is a song done by the superstar to acknowledge himself as the Mayor of Lagos. It came after the celebration of 2020 Easter celebration, Yup! still crispy and fresh.
No doubt, Mayorkun is one artiste that has come to stay in the music sphere and the entire entertainment industry.
We look forward to more and more vibes all the way!
