Akinmayokun Awodumila , popularly known as May D , is a Nigerian singer , songwriter , and dance who was formally signed to the R&B duo P-Square record label “Square records”.
May D was one artist that many Nigerians could vouch would be going to the next level with the release of back-to-back hit songs like Ile-Ijo , Soundtrack , as well as making many feature appearances with some other artists.
While no one can exactly pinpoint what happened to (with) the singer , a few controversies and report suggests that some sort of discord ensued with May D and his then record label boss , Jude Okoye.
With series of backs and forth , May D’s face and music slowly phased out of the Nigerian mainstream media and pop lifestyle , however , things seemed to turn around for him after Cynthia Morgan opened up on the circumstances surrounding her disappearance from the music scene.
May D sought to Cynthia’s voice out as a tool to open up on the circumstances surrounding his own deal with his record label boss ,
According to May D , he was used by Jude to achieve a lot for Square records and the Twins (Peter and Paul Okoye) , P-Square – May D shared that he wrote albums , singles , and composed songs that earned money for the team and while they made all that money , nothing was given to him. Jude Okoye , however , refuted this claim as he shared that the contracts were followed duly – There is still a whole lot of unresolved issues in the drama.
While not too many details of their contracts were made available – They’re rarely made available to everyone , May D has shared his excitement to be part of the ’30 Billion Gang’
