Since his surprise sack from Square Records, Akinmayokun Awodimula, popularly known as May D, has remained silent on the matter. Different views have been made by fans of both parties, with each taking sides of their favourite.
Just over the weekend, news went round that May D was set to drag his former music label to court over breach of agreement. In some quarters, it was said that there was no formal contract signed by both parties, while others claimed Jude Okoye, who heads Squares Records, couldn’t have taken risk signing an artiste without the necessary paperworks.
A fan asked May D via Twitter why he has been silent on the whole issue: “MayD, you have been quiet all this while, what’s going on? Talk to me.”
The ‘Ile ijo’ singer then answered, “They say silence is golden! And I’ve always been guided by the word that says: ‘be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger.”
When he was later asked “MayD, how would you describe your relationship with Square Records before now?” by the same person, May D replied, “Very cordial. Infact, I would say I was loyal to a fault.”
Many have still wondered what went wrong May D and Square Records. He was the first artiste signed by the label after much criticism from fans that P-Square were being ‘selfish’ by not involving outsiders in the prosperous music business.
