Mayowa Alatishe aka Mayor Teeshay is an Ogun state indigene who started his musical adventure at a very young age after he stumbled on his father’s collection of the late Gil-Scott Heron, an American spoken world performer popular for his acclaimed composition- “The Revolution Will Not be Televised.”
With music firmly ingrained in his DNA, Mayor’s versatility became evident when he started a church dance group called Sould’out for Christ. Currently signed under Bit Bender Entertainment, Mayor’s throwback rap style reminiscent of Nas in the old days belies a deep-thinker who weaves rap bars just as he designs and codes programs. In his professional life, he is an accomplished freelance programmer with a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Lagos.
He is currently working on his highly anticipated mixtape called The Maymix which is set to drop anytime soon and should feature the likes of Kel, Nyore, Seriki, Tupengo and others. The mixtape’s philosophy is centred on Mayor’s indepth knowledge of music, using old beats and creating his own version, his own song, and his own music.
First two singles off the mixtape are Mayor’s Like (Sampling Nas is Like) and Look at me now (Sampling Chris Brown) featuring label mate Sammy and Knighthouse’s Phenom. Listen below, these joints get a triple thumbs up from me, as they are totally blazing! Watch out for this dude! Enjoy!
