The singer thought he was going to have a career as an accountant.
Nigerian singer and songwriter, Mayorkun has described his experience as an accountant as ‘annoying’.
Speaking during an interview on the Tea with Tay podcast, the singer recalled his experience as an accountant, just before he became blown in music.
Mayorkun stated that it was one of the worse experiences in his life, as it didn’t turn out to be what he expected it to be.
He said, “At a point, I thought I was going to have a career in banking. I was doing the ACCA to get certified in the UK, just in case my music did not work out. I had an interview at the bank, and I passed the interview. I had a face-to-face interview, and I was interviewed by the bank manager or something in the banking hall; he just dey fire me questions sha. I passed it, but I thought I was getting a mad job, worked as a banker for a year.”
The “Eleko” crooner explained that his banking job turned out indifferent from that of an errand boy from his workplace. He added that he was sent to buy things for other staff because he was an entry-level accountant. This left him red-faced most times.
“This bank work, I did not even have a table and a chair, like if we rank the workers, I was right above the helps. The one time someone told me to buy amala, I just started rethinking my life. I have this friend named Emma, we used to work in the bank together; he’s a witness to this. I’d be so angry when I get back from the bank that I’d be crying and writing songs out of anger; it was like I needed therapy at that time,” he added.
