Mayorkun decided to leave his bank job to search for another due to bad pay, when his cover video was spotted by Davido in February 2016. Davido followed him on Twitter and Instagram, after which Davido asked him if he can do more than play the keyboard. He got a call from Davido the same day he wrote his resignation letter and sent Davido some of the songs he already recorded. Davido decided to sign him to Davido Music Worldwide. Mayorkun released his first single under the label called “Eleko” in 2016. The song debuted on number 9 on the Nigeria Playdata charts, on 1 May 2016, and reached number 5, on 28 May 2016.
