Meanwhile, Davido recently took to his twitter page to share his first chat with his close associate and signee, Mayorkun.
While sharing the chat, Davido said he was feeling so emotional and from the content of the screenshot, we could clearly see why.
All it took was a ‘Twitter DM’ as Davido reached out to the then-unknown Mayorkun, asked for his WhatsApp contact and said he’d like to sign him.
