Spyro, the accomplished Nigerian singer and songwriter behind the widely popular track “Who’s Your Guy,” has recently opened up about the difficulties he faced while seeking support from influencers to promote his music.
In his honest account, Spyro, whose real name is Oludipe Oluwasanmi David, revealed his attempts to approach various influential figures in the industry for assistance in marketing his song, only to be met with consistent rejections.
One particular incident stood out, where Spyro went to great lengths, even going down on his knees in public, to implore an influencer for help in promoting his music.
Unfortunately, his plea was not heard or acknowledged.
During the discussion of the unexpected turn of events that led to the viral success of “Who’s Your Guy,” Spyro highlighted popular comedian and content creator Craze Clown’s significant role.
According to the singer, Craze Clown enjoyed the song and generously provided free promotion across all of his social media platforms.
Spyro’s revelations shed light on the challenges he faced while gaining support for his now-hit song, highlighting the importance of perseverance and the unpredictability of success in the music industry.
In his words;
“While I was performing I saw Craze Clown vibing to my song, after performing I met with him and we exchanged contact, so we decided to meet up I went to his house for one reason or the other, he kept listening to the song continuously. Before you know it he started creating TikTok videos back to back with the sound.”
“He was aggressive with posting to the point that he was making videos more than me and at some point people thought it was Craze Clown’s song, he didn’t charge a dime to promote my song. I’ll go to his house he will still serve me food.
“All the influencers I constituted a nuisance to, for them to help me, but the help didn’t come from there, I literally knelt for an influencer in front of foodies one day, and I’ll never forget and he still didn’t help me.” [sic]
