Mayorkun, popularly called or known as The Mayor of Lagos (TMOL) is arguably one of the best artists we have in Nigeria. We can also say he has one of the best vocals in the industry. I am a huge fan and it was difficult analyzing his hits and getting these 5, but these selections were based on a number of things like best vocals, Youtube ratings, popularity, these are Top 5 Mayorkun Songs.
Eleko was the first official single released by Mayorkun after he was signed to DMW Records in 2016. Eleko was a jam in 2016 and is still a jam. I remember during summer school I had gone for, this song was my roommate friend’s favorite song, she kept playing this jam all the time and she still does. This song won the 2016 Nigerian Teen Choice Award for Choice New Song of the Year. I guess everyone’s favorite part in the song is the chorus, ‘why you carry fire fire for your head’ and it was mostly for ladies who refused love offers in a probably rude manner. Rejected by a love proposal comes the line ‘igba ti ma lowo oluwa lo moo o’. Apparently the song was inspired by a love interest who rejected Mayorkun’s love proposal in 2013. This song was produced by Puffy Tee and the video directed by Director Q. This song has over 6million views on Youtube.
Omo, breaking people’s hearts brings out the best in them. LMAO! Or the worst.
Another single produced by Kiddominat was a mega-hit in 2017 at the time of release. This song brought TMOL to the 2018 Headies Next Rated Awards. This song was particularly a hit in 2017 and into 2018. It was Bernice Burgo’s favorite song then because she constantly played it on her snap. Lol. (sorry if you do not know her). This song has over 23million views on Youtube. This song was a major banger. The visual was directed by Clarence Peters.

Body o che che che, booty oo che che che, makeup on fleek fleek fleek, party all night, night night. Sorry, I just wanted to start with that. The hook has a different bang to it. This song was produced by KiddoMinat and was released in December 2017. The visual was directed by Clarence Peters showing a beauty pageant. This song has 3.6 million views on Youtube. It was a club and radio banger and shows Mayorkun’s versatility.
This song can be said to be one of the best collaborations of 2019 featuring Kizz Daniel. Arguably Kizz also has one of the best vocals in the industry so making a song with Mayor was on a 100. The song was produced by Young Jon and video directed by Aje Films. The song was an actual love, ‘nothing can be compared to your love. baby if you let me, baby, if you let me, I can be your superman’. True received so much airplay on radios and TVs and topped the charts.
This was Mayorkun’s first single of the year in 2019. Having Mayor and Kizz sing at the same time assuring you of their love is a dream come true for some ladies. The video begins with Mayorkun and Kizz Daniels trying to settle with their lovers after being accused of infidelity and ends with them settling their differences. Kizz Daniel and Mayorkun did remarkably well on this track flexing their vocals and blessing us.
Bobo was released in 2018 and was produced by TY Mix. Mayor featured the DMW boss Davido on this track and it was a banger with both artistes. Bobo was constantly played everywhere. Has 14million views on Youtube. He sings about a lady that makes him crazy with love and how he would become a fool for her ‘tori mi re Moshe gong an gogo’. This song acceptance was huge and well received.
