Nigerian musician Mayorkun has narrated how he felt when he first got a Direct Mention (DM) from Davido, requesting for his WhatsApp number ahead of signing an official record label deal with the 30-year-old.

Mayorkun, a former banker and the son of popular actress Toyin Adewale, shared that he had made a cover of Davido’s song, ‘The Money’, featuring rapper Olamide, which he posted on Twitter a while after.

The 27-year-old said he posted the video for the cover song to be able to delete it off his mobile phone, but Davido responded in his DM.
