Do You Know Who TF Duncan Mighty Actually Is?

July 31, 2018

The Internet has gone mad again. I woke up to Duncan Mighty slander, wow.

Duncan Mighty trended on Twitter, and it’s not because he’s added another album to his famous five. People are saying Wizkid ‘revived’ Duncan’s career because of the Fake Love collabo.

This begs the question, did Duncan’s career ever die? Class is now in session, ladies and gentlemen.

No, it never did. Duncan Mighty has been giving us jams since 2008 that he dropped his first album, ‘Koliwater’. That album gave us hits like Wene Mighty, Ako Na Uche, along with 20 other tracks and it was a monster! Please tell me where you think Wizkid was in 2008. Wizkid called Duncan a legend here. Do they revive the careers of legends?

He dropped another four albums, with the last one being in 2016 called The Certificate that had hits like ‘Onyinye’ and ‘Port Harcourt Girl’.

This is 2018, and Duncan’s last successful album was 2016. Let’s do the math together, shall we?
According to Joey Akan, Duncan Mighty was this close to starting a Duncan Mighty Republic. Something like Kalakuta to Lagosians, so you know it’s not a small thing.
But come sef, let’s reason; Duncan wrote and produced Fake Love, and he owned it! So I’m not understanding what people are talking about. It’s like we have all forgotten ‘Obianuju’ that was a viral sensation or ‘I Don’t Give A Shot’. Come on, many of your faves can’t relate.
My dear Lagosians, there are 35 other states in Nigeria. I know it’s actually easy to forget so I won’t blame you too much. Duncan Mighty is King in the South. The fact that what you mostly hear is songs from other musicians is simply a matter of geography.

Honestly, this is what I think. I may be wrong (which I’m not lol). What do you guys believe? Comment below, or tweet us @zikokomag!
