Continuing his global takeover, buzzing Afrobeats phenomenon and the self-proclaimed “Mayor of Lagos” Mayorkun turns up with two new singles entitled “Alarm” and “Oshey Boys” today via Epic Records.

“Alarm” hinges on a head-nodding Afrobeats rhythm punctuated by a subtle bounce and organic percussion. Mayorkun’s voice ebbs and flows with the groove as he delivers an instantly irresistible chorus with a command to, “Sound the alarm.” To herald the release of the track, he rolled through to VEVO and delivered the show-stopping first official performance of “Alarm. As always, he emanates energy, charisma, and style in the clip.

Meanwhile, “Oshey Boys” arrives just in time for a celebration back in his hometown of Lagos. It provides the perfect soundtrack for the festivities.

Back in 2016, Mayorkun caught the attention of none other than Afrobeats icon Davido who signed him. Building up a buzz from behind the scenes, he notably crafted the international banger “The Best” for Davido’s A Better Time album. 2022 saw him leap into the spotlight on Camidoh’s “Surgarcane (Remix)” [feat. King PromiseMayorkun, & Darkoo]. It ignited TikTok, while Mayorkun’s “Certified Loner (No Competition)” popped off with 8.3 million Spotify streams. To date, he has garnered north of 100 million YouTube views and over half-a-billion on-demand career streams. However, he’s just getting started. Sound the alarm, because the “Mayor of Lagos” is on his way to the top.
