Since the release of his debut single Eleko, DMW signee Mayorkun has become one of the few artists with no bad songs. The singer has continued to feed Nigeria good music and it is with joy inna mi left breast that I bring the good tidings of the release of his debut album The Mayor of Lag0s (TMOL).
The album starts off with an Intro featuring a call from the artist’s mum, that lets us know that this prolific Afro-Pop artist has paid his dues and is ready to start off channeling the best version of himself in his art. Listening to The Mayor of Lagos, it’s so easy to dance till you realize Mayorkun is solo on the first six tracks of this 14-track album, proving his amazing talent and showmanship. Mayorkun also shows his spidey-sense for great features with five collab tracks featuring D’Banj (Oshepete), Sarkodie (Jonze Me), Patoranking (Mofo), Peruzzi, Dremo & Yonda on the stand out single Red Handed and Davido on the hit song Bobo.
If Mayorkun’s talent was ever in doubt (which would be odd), this debut is a definite nullification of such a doubt.
