Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter Spyro, the mastermind behind the hit song “Who’s Your Guy,” has spoken out about the difficulties he faced in obtaining influencer support to promote his song.
Spyro, actual name Oludipe Oluwasanmi David, described how he sought many famous persons in the business for help with promoting his music, only to be rejected again.

According to Spyro, Craze Clown enjoyed the music and promoted it on all of his social media platforms, including TikTok videos.
In his words;
“While I was performing I saw Craze Clown vibing to my song, after performing I met with him and we exchanged contact, so we decided to meet up I went to his house for one reason or the other, he kept listening to the song continuously. Before you know it he started creating TikTok videos back to back with the sound.”
“He was aggressive with posting to the point that he was making videos more than me and at some point people thought it was Craze Clown’s song, he didn’t charge a dime to promote my song. I’ll go to his house he will still serve me food.
“All the influencers I constituted a nuisance to, for them to help me, but the help didn’t come from there, I literally knelt for an influencer in front of foodies one day, and I’ll never forget and he still didn’t help me.” [sic]
