Mayorkun is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and pianist and one of the artists signed to DMW. His legal name is Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel. He is the first of three children from a family of entertainers.
Born in Osun state on 23 March 1994, the songster developed an interest in music quite early and was part of his church’s choir where, in a moment of reflection, he had said he learned the rudiments of music.
Mayorkun earned a degree in accounting at the age of 22 and delved into the world of banking. But the lure of music was too strong to resist. So while working as a banker, he was also dropping freestyles as well as covers of songs by notable artists.
When he released a cover of Davido’s “The Money,” Mayorkun caught the attention of the DMW boss, who invited him to join his record label.
Mayorkun accepted the invitation, releasing a song titled “Eleko,” his first on the record label and one of his most famous to date.
Mayorkun was born in March 1994. So he is currently 26 years. He will turn 27 in two months – read as 23 March 2020.
Mayorkun’s real name is Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel. The stage name is a play on the name Mayowa. Obscure about six years ago, the Mayorkun’s name is now famous across the country.
Mayorkun is the first of three children born in a family of entertainers. His mother is a Nollywood actress, while his father is an artist and a movie producer. He has spoken about his mom in his music.
Mayorkun, famously known as the Mayor of Lagos, in reference to his album of that title, came from a family of entertainment nuts. It is, therefore, not surprising he should end up an entertainer himself.
Mayorkun’s father, Sunday Adewale, was an artist and movie producer.
Mayorkun’s mother, Toyin Adewale, is also a producer in Nigeria’s Nollywood. Toyin constantly shares photos of her children on social media and prays for them.
Mayorkun has two younger siblings who look like him. His younger brother is named Ayobami Samuel Adewale, and his sister is named Morenikejimi Adesewa Adewale. His mother, Toyin Adewale, once shared a photo of the three of them and asked her followers to pray for them. She called them and Mayor “Gifts and Testimonies.” She heaped blessings on them and urged mothers to do the same for their children. She wrote, “The Lord will keep us together as a united family, and our relationships will be more fruitful than ever.”
For one who has done great musically, Mayorkun has had his fair share of nominations and awards. In 2016, when he signed with DMW, he won The Headies in the Rookie of the Year category and also won the City People Entertainment Awards in the Most Promising Act category. He won The Headies again in 2018 and 2019
Also, in 2016, he was nominated for and won the Nigerian Teen Choice Awards in the Choice New Song of the Year category.
A year later, in 2017, he won the Nigerian Entertainment Awards in the Best New Act category and the City People Entertainment Awards in the Best New Act and Best Music Cover categories.
Mayorkun is signed to Davido’s DMW. Before his music adventure, he worked as a banker. While in banking, he had thought of resigning and going fully into music. His mother had opposed him at the time, stating that banking was his calling.
His father was in support of him following his musical dreams, however. His mother had a change of mind when she learned of Davido’s invitation for him to join DMW. She was also present when he called Mayorkun. Later, as a DMW artiste, he would do a song with his mum.
Mayorkun gained fame as a member of Davido’s record label “DMW.” The famous singer is known to drop hits and step away from the limelight. Several sources around him have stated that he prefers to be indoors than out in public. In his 2022 hit song “Certified Loner.” Mayorkun confirmed this while talking to a romantic partner, saying, “I’m good on my own, and I have made peace with my soul.” He is regarded as one of Nigeria’s most creative artists.
Mayorkun is among the richest young musicians out there. His net worth is said to be around $1 million. The songster himself is way too busy making music to bother about what people think – or say – about his net worth.
Mayorkun is a lover of expensive cars. He owns a Range Rover and a Mercedes Benz CLA250 AMG. He once took to social media to announce that he had bought a Porsche Panamera Turbo. He captioned the post, “shey testimony tin ba ra ‘POSH.” He also owns a Mercedes Benz 4matic and two Toyota Prado SUVs.
Mayorkun made the news in 2018 after buying his first house. He shared a photo of himself standing next to the house and captioned it “Humble Beginnings.” According to reports, the house is worth an estimated N200 million.
If privacy were a person, it would be Mayorkun. The Nigerian singer and songwriter keeps his romantic relationships private. He has not unveiled any of his love interests on social media. It is unknown if he is in a relationship with anyone.
Like other public figures desirous of focusing on their careers and avoiding unnecessary distractions, Mayorkun has not made his number public. He might, however, be contacted on social media channels like Instagram and Facebook, on which he is active and have followers in the millions.
