Crayon says 2020 was a “dark” one for his music and the “darkest year” of his career.


In an episode of the Drip Check podcast, the Mavin Records-signed singer said he released songs biweekly and none gained traction.

Crayon recounted how the COVID-19 pandemic affected one of the songs he released that had the potential of becoming a hit.

When asked if he got depressed because of the situation, Crayon said he developed self-doubt and thought he was “cursed”.


“2020 was one of my darkest years in the game. I dropped about seven songs and no one gained traction,” the singer.

“I remember when I dropped ‘Gbona,’ it was about to take off then COVID-19 struck and everything shut down.

“And ‘Gbona’ was a club banger. I dropped the video, but it still didn’t pick up. I was dropping songs every two weeks but still no traction.


“But I want to shout out to Jazzy, Tega, and Rema. They got me out of the situation.

“I wouldn’t say I was depressed. It was more of me looking into the mirror and doubting myself.

“Because for me growing up, I saw myself as a star. I never begged for attention.

“So when it was happening, I was worried and I started to wonder if I was cursed.”


Crayon got signed to Mavin Records in 2019.

Since the release of his eponymous debut EP, the singer has continued to make a name for himself.

Crayon also has several hit singles to his credit like ‘So Fine’, ‘Ijo Labalaba’, and ‘Tele’.
