Singer Iyanya took to X platform to provide updates on the missing jewelry of fellow artist Mayorkun during the Calabar festival. According to Iyanya, one of Mayorkun’s pieces has been recovered, expressing gratitude to the individual who returned it to The Grand Hotel Calabar.
In his post, Iyanya revealed, “Thank you to the guy who brought this back this morning to THE GRAND HOTEL CALABAR. Just returned now is 1 of 2 of @Mayorkun’s jewelry. We have one more to go.” He appealed to the public, urging anyone with information about the second missing piece to come forward.
In a subsequent tweet, Iyanya added, “This one is still not found, please check around. I’m sure we have it somewhere, and will please return the second one to our brother before he leaves Calabar.” Iyanya emphasized the importance of returning the jewelry and offered a reward for its safe return.
“Just got to Grand Hotel Calabar and drop it there; there’s a reward waiting for you on arrival,” Iyanya assured potential helpers. As an incentive, he promised a $500 reward for the return of the second pendant, specifying that the money is available at The Grand Hotel Calabar.
Earlier, Nigerian singer and songwriter, Mayorkun, has declared that he will never grace the stage of the Calabar Festival again.
The singer, Adewale Mayowa Emmanuel, took to his social media page to announce his decision, leaving fans and festival organizers taken aback.
Mayorkun bid farewell to the vibrant cultural event, extending his well-wishes to other performers set to participate in future editions.
However, Mayorkun fans and concerned individuals are urged to assist in locating the missing jewelry, ensuring its safe return to the artist.
