Mayokun Awodumila aka Mr May D doubles as a dancer and Dancehall/ Afropop singer. He became famous when he dropped his first official single ‘Sound Track’, a cool R&B song. His star shone brighter when Psquare featured him in ‘Chop My Money’. Thereafter, he released groovy and nice hit songs as ‘Ile Ijo’ and ‘Gat Me High’. He became so popular he felt he needed to be on his own: He left Square Records and founded Confam Entertainment. One wonders why an artiste who was once a pop superstar in Nigeria is no longer relevant. Is he concentrating more on his dance career?
May D seems to rely too much on beats and choreography. These major cover-up methods are evident in ‘Get Down’, ‘All over You’ and his latest work ‘I Wanna Know’. He employed the services of producers as Oskido, Legendary Beatz and Tyrone. These are A-list producers yet the results are either average or below average songs. Most of the songs have too little lyrical contents. If he is to become as relevant as he was years back in the Nigerian music industry, he needs to act fast, focus more on his music, work harder on the lyrical content of his future songs and do more R&B songs.
