If there was an award for the MVP of the year, it would go to DMW Label artist, Mayorkun.
Fondly called The mayor of Lagos by his fans, Mayorkun is the embodiment of talent, wit, and creativity.
He opened the year with his street banger, “Geng” and from there, dominated the year with both his songs and collaborations.
Most of 2020’s best collaborations had the 26-year-old act featured on it and this is amazing as he brings his witty wordplay and amazing skills to the song.
Whenever, you hear either “Of Lay Lay”, “Gege”, “This bread no be agege”, then you know it’s about to be an amazing ride.
