Nigerian superstar, Mayorkun, also known as the Mayor of Lagos, releases his first song release of the year, “Certified Loner (No Competition),” which is available now on all digital platforms and distributed by Sony Music Entertainment/Black Butter Records UK. Listen HERE.
The brand-new single follows his highly acclaimed sophomore album, Back in Office, which debuted at #1 with the highlight track, Holy Father, racking up over 40 million downloads across digital platforms, topping the radio charts for five weeks in a row, and spending 13 weeks on the UK Afrobeats chart. Mayorkun, who is now regarded as a music authority, is not slowing down in his efforts to maintain this status.
Mayorkun returns with a vengeance to continue expressing his dominance in the music industry, dressing up as one of the country’s finest musical creatives to release an Amapiano-inspired track that has already come in a flurry. The single debuted on TikTok with a teaser sound that was soon devoured by users, eventually making it to the app’s trending section and amassing around 200k creations.
Mayorkun’s specialization in crafting Afropop compositions and his penchant for enriching these sounds with humorous twists from the Amapiano genre are on display once again in “Certified Loner (No Competition).” The geng (Mayorkun’s cult following) can now put their keen wait for new music to rest, as the track drops just in time to get the party started for summer and all the good vibes that come with it.If you enjoy our stories kindly join our community for more updates ☺️
