Nigerian pop star, Davido has signed Mayowa Adewale aka Mayor Kun, Nollywood actress Toyin Adewale’s son to his record label known as HKN Gang.
An interactive session between Davido and the media happened on Friday in Lagos where he unveiled his new act. Afro pop singer Mayokun is also a graduate of the University of Lagos.
His path had crossed with Davido’s after Mayowa covered Davido’s single, “The Money”, and tagged the HKN boss to the video post on Instagram. Davido watched the clip, was impressed by it and commented on the post saying “U got a gift…keep it up”.
This comes after Davido continues to boost his international acclaim as he covers Fader Magazine’s February/March issue, with the mag calling him “afro pop music’s fortunate son”, it would be easy to assume Mayor Kun is in good hands.
