Pop singer Akinmayokun ‘May D‘ Awodumila has reacted to the recent statement put out by Square Records announcing they are parting ways with him.
‘I don’t know what they are talking about‘, May D, who sounded very relaxed told Nigerian Entertainment Today over the phone. ‘You know I don’t stay in their house so how am I meant to know this?‘ he continued.
Just this morning (Tuesday, August 21, 2012) in a statement, Jude Okoye announced that the label and its sister company Northside Entertainment would no longer be associated with May D.
A close friend of May D however said that the singer has been unhappy at Square records for many months. ‘He says they aren’t doing much for his career, May D wants to spend big like Davido and co. He’s not happy at all as he [is] most times broke.‘
May D is usually seen driving the twins Hummer H2 around town. ‘Just because he’s riding the Hummer doesn’t mean he’s happy o‘ the source offered.
Before signing with Psquare in 2011, MayD was with rapper Alaye’s Ice Cream Records. We’re told Alaye was impressed with May D’s performance on rapper Kel’s ‘Too fine’ and asked him to join his label.
‘But after he turned to Alaye’s personal driver, he got tired and looked elsewhere, Psquare were there and they struck the deal‘, another friend of the singer tells Nigerian Entertainment Today.
A graduate of the University of Lagos, May D featured on two singles off their fifth album ‘Invasion‘ one of which was the hit single ‘Chop my money,‘ which had a killer remix and video featuring Akon.
Square Records also shot two videos for May D – ‘Soundtrack’ and ‘Ile Ijo’ which were both directed by Clarence Peters.
