DMW heir apparent, Mayorkun has reportedly exited the record label according to the information reaching our desk at the Naijaloaded HQ.
Although no official statement has been released from both parties (Mayorkun & DMW) regarding the exiting of the record label contract between them, we guess it wants to be made private.
However, there have been some clandestine signs that have made a whole lot believe Mayorkun left DMW.
SO WHY DID WE THINK MAYORKUN LEFT DMW?
The speculations about the Mayor of Lagos leaving DMW have been on the rise since he released his first single of the year, “Let Me Know” and it wasn’t released under the DMW imprint rather it was released under Sony Music.
On Davido‘s part, he only put out one tweet about the song and also shared it on his Instagram story.
HAS THE CONTRACT ACTUALLY ENDED?
Yes. You can tell that Mayorkun is no longer contractually obligated to Davido or DMW.
There are already more than enough signs pointing us to that already – sit back as we take you on the whole signs we noticed too.
Firstly we’re going to see the changes in the Copyright owners of Mayorkun’s releases when with DMW and now it appears that the contract has expired.
See the screenshots below:-
Looking at the Copyright owner of “Let Me Know” it was owned by Sony Music West Africa and not DMW anymore – at this point the secret transitioning happened, at first it wasn’t so clear with the first song, and the “Back In Office” dropped and it was also copyrighted to “Sony Music”
At this point, there’s no more doubt as to if Mayorkun has left Davido’s DMW or not.
Using Personal life scenario self – When was the last time you see Davido and Mayorkun together? We all remember how much they’re close and how often they appear in the same place all the time.
Checking some of Mayorkun‘s recent pictures on Instagram, you will notice the 30 Billion Gang emblem pendant is no longer on Mayorkun’s neck – Mayor is no longer repping anything that has to do with DMW again.
All this only points to one fact which is; as at 2021, Mayorkun is no longer a DMW artist.
Of course, they’re not gonna announce his exit, and why would they? There was no clash and even if there was, it’s best kept a secret.
Well, the big question is
