2 Christmases ago, Mayorkun watched the 2015 Headies at his cousin’s house as a fan. Today, he’s a Headies award recipient who shares the same sphere of sound and relevance with the likes of Kiss Daniel, Reekado Banks, Mr Eazi, Lax, Dice Ailes etc. as a valid contender.
Based on how his name has been a constant on the lips and stages of the 2 kings of African music lately, anyone else observing the patterns might just agree with me on this – The industry is quite cloudy with a chance of Mayorkun as the endorsed successor. ‘Nuff said.
