Nigeria music artiste Akinmayokun Awodumila, popularly known as Mr May D, has said that he first introduced the Amapiano music to the Nigerian music industry.
The 37-year-old stated this in a tweet on Wednesday, following a tweep’s claim that Pop star Davido introduced the Amapiano sound to Nigeria two years ago.
In response to the tweet, May D claimed that he initiated the Nigeria-South African collaboration.
“Na me bring amapiano come Naija, and I have awards to prove that! We started the Naija South African collaboration. I don’t like saying sh*t like this, but y’all like putting me under the box,” he wrote.
“After me was David,” May D added.
In another tweet, he wrote: “Don’t have time to hate , just spitting facts that’s all, you can insult me all you want, really don’t care we LEGENDS OUT HERE.”
May D parted ways with the reunited music duo P-Square and Jude Okoye in 2012.
He joined Davido’s Music Worldwide (DMW) record label in July 2020.
