    Mp3Bullet TBT! A Throwback To When May D Was The Most Promising…

    Whatever happened to May D…

    The year is 2012. I just went to visit my best friend, and he’s telling me about this new video that’s banging, that he’s been seeing on TV. He told me the guy’s name is May D, and the song in question “Ile Ijo.” I was surprised it was this boy that was telling me about a new hot kid on the block. Because usually I was the one who does introduction. But then, later, I discovered why. He was obsessed with May D, and so was everyone. That was the time “Ile Ijo” was one of the hottest songs, and May D, the most promising act.

    Mp3Bullet TBT! A Throwback To When May D Was The Most Promising

    May D shot to stardom after he signed on to P-Square’s Square Records in 2011, and dropped the track “Soundtrack.” He later dropped “Ile Ijo,” and the video which had popular dancer and Guinness World Record holder, Kaffy, in it. P-Square then put him on the remix of their “Chop My Money,” alongside American singer, Akon. His verse was epic, and then everyone wanted him on their songs.

    Davido, Sina Rambo, Show Dem Camp, DJ Xclusive, Iyanya and more featured him. And yeah, everyone knew this was the next-rated. He got nominated for “Best New Act,” at the Nigeria Entertainment Awards in 2012. But, in 2012, he exited Square Records, there was probably a fall-out with the P-Square guys. He moved on and started his own imprint, and nothing was the same. Everything almost crumbled. He still had hits like “Gat Me High” and “So Many Tinz,” though. He even dropped an album in 2013. Everyone thought the industry may have just given him a second shot. He even got nominated as “Best New Musician” at the 2013 City People Awards. But, that wasn’t the May D everyone thought would take over the industry, again.

    Year into year, he’s tried to get back to the big scene. In 2014, he scored a hit with “Ibadi,” that went viral for the dance video. He also featured “Wizkid” on Bamilo, that same year. It wasn’t enough. In 2016, he featured Akon and Davido on a single called “Hustle.” Despite the big names on the track, it wasn’t a hit, and at that point, it seemed the industry has given up on him.

    Now who will May D run to? The May D, Durella once ran to, to stay hot? The May D everyone thought was the next African superstar. Another day, another story of a very talented guy that faded too quick. Today, we remember May D. TBH, the guy came sauce, back then. But the rest, as they say, is history…
