It would be recalled that the P-square owned Square Records in May 2011, announced the signing of May D.
He then featured on a remix of ‘Chop My Money’ by P Square alongside Akon and also with tracks like ‘Soundtrack’ and ‘Ile Ijo’ which had videos.
May D in August 2012, announced his split from Square Records, disclosing that he now has his own label, Confam Entertainment.
At the time, Jude ‘Engees’ Okoye said, “We at Northside and Square records wish him all the best in his career and life.”
But in January 2013, Jude Okoye told HipOn TV that, “We sign in artistes as our way of giving back to the society, and by the time they become known, we let them be. However when May D came in, he wanted more than that, he wanted to be Psquare, a name that we have struggled to be build for years…”
May D before his singing with the Square Records was best known for his hook on Kel’s ‘Too Fine’ and as the rapper on Alaye’s SugarKane Records.
Alaye is the rapper who featured on P Square’s ‘Temptation’ in the 2000s.
