At a time when it was becoming increasingly difficult to identify Nigerian musicians with a particular genre, DMW star, Mayorkun, has indicated that the specific genre debate will continue to remain relevant for some time.

The singer told HIPTV in an interview that adopting multiple styles was his coping mechanism in the music industry.

He said that exploring different kinds of sounds was the secret to remaining relevant in the Nigerian music industry.

He opined that this trend has been existing for some time now and it was necessary to make changes as the time demanded. 

“Based on what I have seen, people don’t stand on one trend: when it changes, you move with it.”

The singer said he relied on his voice to set him apart from other musicians, but he would often change according to the emergence of newer sounds.
