Spyro: I Took Bank Loan To Make Song With Davido

Budding singer and songwriter, Oludipe Oluwasanmi David, professionally addressed as Spyro, has revealed that he obtained a bank loan to finance his song with Davido and Mayorkun.

The rising artiste featured Omo Baba Olowo and Mayorkun on a single titled ‘Funke’ in 2018, but the commercial success of the song was short-lived.

Speaking in a recent interview with Cool FM, Spyro said he struggled for three years to repay the loan.

The ‘Who’s Your Guy’ crooner said he hit the limelight as a result of the collaboration but fell off after the song lost the initial momentum.

Spyro said; “When I dropped ‘Funke’ and the song popped. I had David [Davido], I had Mayorkun on the song. And after dropping ‘Funke’ and my career still went down, I’m like, ‘Oh! Am I ever gonna rise again?’

“I popped but I just came down because there was no structure. There was nothing. I took a loan from the bank to finance that particular record while I was still signed to Upfront & Personal. When that period passed, I now had to start paying for the loan. That was really difficult because I paid for like three years.”
