Olamide
Nigerian Singer/Rapper
Olamide Baddo whose full name is Adedeji Olamide was born and raised in Bariga, in the city of Lagos on the 15th of  March 1989. He is one the most promising music artists in Nigeria. He also goes by other stage names which include “Baddo, YNBL, Young Erikina, and Baddest Boy Ever Liveth”.

His debut studio album ‘Rapsodi’ was released in 2011, while signed to Coded Tunes label. His second album, YBNL, was released on 12th November 2012 under his own label of the same name, “YBNL.” So far he has released 8 studio albums including; Baddest Guy Ever Liveth (2013), Street OT (2014), 2 Kings (2015), Eyan Mayweather (2015), The Glory (2016) and one compilation, “The Best  of Olamide.”

One notable aspect about the music done by Olamide is the fast-paced rap. This type of music genre is still in its early stages in Nigeria where a majority of the people prefer the high energy, fast-paced party popping jams. However, Olamide has managed to bring change by incorporating new skills into his rap music. He is very versatile as an artist and is able to easily blend different tunes and beats. Although he majorly raps in Yoruba, Nigerian slang, and Pidgin English, Olamide has produced a few tracks in English.

Olamide’s music does well to bring out a deep cultural aspect of Nigerian culture to anyone that listens to it. The music focuses on his background and upbringing and this makes it easy for many people to reflect on the music. People from the high life society, professionals, students, market traders, as well as ordinary well-meaning Nigerians appreciate the young man’s music.

No doubt, Olamide’s music career has really flourished over the years. He is always featured among the best artists in the industry. He was initially rumoured to have been signed by D’banj’s DB records but this claim was debunked by Olamide stating that it is too late for anyone to sign him at his current level in the industry.

Interestingly, Olamide has been nominated and won a lot of coveted awards in Nigeria. He also happens to be the very first Nigerian Musician to be signed as an ambassador for Ciroc brand on 17 July 2013.
