David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido has signed May D to his record label Davido Music Worldwide (DMW).
Born Akinmayokun Awodumila, May D broke the news on social media and is cureently trending on most social media platforms.
Few would have thought May D would still be struggling considering how he burst into limelight some years back.
However, his career has not taken off as many would have expected to. Next month, it will be 8 years since he split from P-Square under Square records to start his own record label called Confam Entertainment.
However, it has not been rosy for the graduate of the prestigious University of Lagos who has not quite gotten his career on track.
Rumours of a disagreement between him and the two brothers filtered all over but it was only confirmed a few months ago when May D came out to reveal he slept in the Okoyes’ Boys Quarters.
He even claimed he did not have the luxury of a bed then and had to sleep on TV cartons. May D also claimed no bank account was created for him. So he was paid in cash.
This could be so there would be no record of underpayment but who knows? The brothers have now split themselves and although these allegations were strong, there was no real counter claim from their end.
It however seems like the musician’s career is about to be resuscitated by none other than Davido who has now signed the musician to his record label.
This is a huge step to redemption and he could now get the right reach and audience for his talents.
Davido Music worldwide has stars like Peruzzi, Mayorkun, Dremo and so on. He has now been added to the list.
Davido has been known to be very generous and despite going off the grid for a while, he is still doing good things away from his music and helping to revive May D’s career is an applaudable gesture.
He also offered to help Cynthia Morgan after she also claimed the P-square brothers used her but nothing has been heard of that.
However, if Davido is helping May D then it definitely is not his fault if nothing comes off him reaching out to help Cynthia Morgan.
Davido himself has an album on the way with A Better Time expected to be out later this month or this year at least.
Congratulations to May D and hopefully this revives his career.
