May D and Davido

Nigerian singer, Akinmayokun Awodumila, popularly known as May D, has bragged about bringing the Amapiano genre of music to the Nigerian music industry.

Naija News earlier reported that Amapiano is a style of house music that emerged in South Africa in 2012 and it is a hybrid of deep house, jazz, and lounge music characterized by synths, airy pads, and wide percussive basslines.

May D’s claim comes a few hours after Davido dragged South African Record Producer, DJ Maphorisa for downplaying his role in the success of Amapiano music in Africa and giving his credit to Wizkid and Burna Boy.

However, May D, in a post shared on Twitter, said he brought the genre of music to Nigeria and there are awards to prove his point.

He further laid claims to starting Nigeria-South African collaboration, adding that Davido was next to him.

He tweeted: “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, after me was Davido.”
