Is Mayorkun’s Relevance Reducing As He’s Not Dropping New Music?
Mayorkun used to be one of the most important guys in the music industry. What’s he these days though?
From the hitmaker who dominated the late 2010s, he’s become a guy whose inclusion on the “Artiste of the Year” nominations caused an uproar.
He had a stellar 2020, doing some of Davido‘s work, fixing some good guys up with hits (Chike, Zinoleesky, Jamopyper, etc), and dropping a few hits himself. But 2020 was another year with no album for the maestro.
Mayorkun first gained attention in 2016, with his “Eleko” jam, which he released just after he was signed to Davido Music Worldwide alongside Dremo.
By the time he released his debut album, “The Mayor of Lagos” in 2018, he was already miles ahead of many of the guys he started with, including his labelmate, Dremo.
His album dropped the same month as Kizz Daniel‘s “No Bad Songz” and still, with the quality of hits he had on the LP, it didn’t get buried, it banged!
That’s the Mayorkun we all know. The one that went on a rampage in 2019, dropping so many hits we thought a new album was on the way for sure.
But it’s three years since his debut and we’re yet to get another album. To make matters worse, he’s not even putting out music the way he used to. Except for collaborations he’s been on recently, he hasn’t made a single hit song this year, and half of the year is almost gone.
With this kind of inconsistency, it’s not hard to lose your relevance, especially in the music industry. It happened to Sean Tizzle, happened to Lil Kesh, almost happened to Runtown. There’s no telling if it’ll happen to Mayorkun, the Mayor of Lagos himself.
What I do know is, the “Bobo” singer has to get back in the booth and put out some stuff back-to-back. So, he will not drop an album and no one would care. Either you have Davido or not, inconsistency will eventually get the better of you and the relevance will inadvertently dwindle.
Not if he drops new quality music though. So, it’s time for new Mayorkun music for real, it’s been long overdue.
Let’s hear from you.
What Are Your Thoughts? Is Mayorkun Going To Be Relevant Either He Releases New Music Or Not?
