Iyanya reacts after Mayorkun vows never to perform at Calabar

Nigerian artist Iyanya has reacted following an outcry from Mayorkun over a bad incident he experienced in Calabar, Cross River.

Following his performance at an end-of-year event, Mayorkun promised in the post—which has since gone viral online—that he would never return to Calabar.

The former DMW Signee, who recently aimed at those requesting Christmas presents from him, expressed qualms about accepting an invitation to return to Calabar.

He wished the other musicians who would be playing at the Calabar festivals success, but he did not disclose the reasons behind his choice.

Mayorkun shared a picture of himself performing on stage and captioned it; “CALABAR, You’ll probably NEVER EVER see me again, Good luck to the other artists coming for your festivals tho.”

As he begged fellow indigenous people to return the stolen item, the Cross River native and Kukere musician alluded to the fact that one of his colleagues had been the victim of theft during the event. Iyanya posted a tweet:

“My calabar people, this is very bad for the peaceful people I know us to be. The government has brought my colleagues to entertain you, all you owe them is protection and great hospitality. If you know anyone who stole from my brother , please return it and I will personally compensate you… Drop it at THE GRAND HOTEL I will personally compensate you PLEASE.
