I stopped performing after being told that someone died at my show – Mayorkun Reveals



Nigerian Afropop singer, Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, better known as Mayorkun, has opened up about a tragic incident that happened during one of his shows.

The former DMW artiste revealed that during a stage performance, he was informed that someone died backstage.

Mayorkun made this known while being interviewed by TV host, Ehiz on the Dadaboy Show, noting that it’s the worst incident that has happened during any of his own shows.

According to the ‘Betty Butter’ singer, he immediately stopped performing and went backstage to confirm the report for himself.

Mayorkun said that the person, however, did not die, rather he had just collapsed while he (Mayor) was performing on stage.

He said the zeal to continue performing was no longer alive because of the sad news, but for the reassuring words of On Air Personality, Dotun who made him realise that the person was not dead.

He went on to continue the show after Dotun told him that the guy fainted.

‘‘Someone told me that someone just died backstage. When I heard that thing I just dropped the mic and I was going backstage”, he said.
