Akinmayokun Awodumila, popularly known as May D got into the Nigerian entertainment scene in 2011. The RnB/pop singer was signed to Square Records, a record label owned by the former R&B duo, P-Square.
He shot into the limelight that same year with the release of his single, “Soundtrack.” He then featured on the remix of P-Square’s mega-hit, “Chop My Money” alongside Akon in 2012. The song helped him begin to develop a devoted fan base and cemented May D’s place in the music industry for a while. Riding on the success of the remix, he quickly released two hit singles including, “Ile Ijo” and “Cool Temper”.
On August 21, 2012, Jude Okoye of Square records released a statement saying that May D was no longer a part of the record label. He tried to move on from the label and deleted his old YouTube account with the videos released by Square Records.
On September 25, 2012, he announced that he had created his own record label, ‘Confam Entertainment’. Under his new record label, he released another hit song, called “Gat Me High” in December 2012.
2013 was a good year for the singer. He had his first concert, released his song, “Get Down” and a video for “Gat Me High”. He also had multiple collaborations with stars like Mafikizolo, DJ Xclusive, Kay Switch and Olamide.
He continued releasing music in 2014, scoring collaborations with artists like Davido and Jaywon. In 2015, he faced a major scandal after his baby mama made allegations that he had been abusing her. He dropped a few songs like “Ale yi A Bad”, “All Over You” and “Let Them Talk” but they didn’t do so well. He released some songs in 2016 and has kept on releasing songs randomly since then but they have barely caught public attention.
Last we heard of May D, a fan had spotted him in Sweden driving a car and assumed that he was an Uber driver. He reacted by saying, “Ko ni da fun gbogboyin, iyalaya ati baba baba yin ni UBER DRIVER… But shout out to all the UBER DRIVERS making real and legitimate income!” This literally translates to ‘It won’t be well with all of you, your parents are the Uber drivers’.
Just this month, May D released a new song titled, “Time For You”, so it seems the singer may still be around. If you are a May D fan, download his new song to see if he’s still got it.
