Celebrating A Street Champion – Olamide Baddo!

Posted by Jim Donnett on March 15, 2016 in Editorial · 28 Comments


More times the artiste, more times the man. Olamide really can do no wrong in our eyes. Of all the giftings that any man can boast, Olamide decided that his penchant to making it in life would reside in the business of music and since submitting totally to that resolution in the year 2000, the road has led only one way. UP!

Being a native of Bariga from Lagos State, Olamide’s music has chronicled excerpts of his activity-filled life which includes typical childhood dreams, hustler’s ambition and up till the point of finally attaining the deserving fame. The particular relish in these records will be the fact that they are executed using language influences from his local dialect, Yoruba, as a means to relaying his cultural roots.

Just like the tale of many superstars today, Olamide’s foray began on the rough and turgid streets which held no particular promises other than fear, insecurity and an impending loss of self for any with such big dreams. Olamide remained undeterred, even serving time as a studio rat – shuttling sessions in and around his host locale until he got signed by ID Cabasa under whose belt, he released his widely acclaimed debut, Rapsodi. Whilst still building his prominence to becoming the artiste of his design, Eni Duro officially announced his budding star prowess, later on sealing his feature with Nigeria’s then hottest kid on the block, Wizkid on the song Omo To Shan.

Growing amidst a herald of praisers and bashful critics, he cut ties with ID Cabasa’s Coded Tunes label to start up his self-owned outfit YBNL, which otherwise became the stylized text for his second studio album Yahoo Boy No Laptop released in 2012. His consistency is a feat that has continued for another consecutive amount of years, birthing volumes of over-the-counter music mixes with finitesimal counts on awe-inspiring hits.

Olamide’s vision has since remained an odd wonder to a myriad of folks who perhaps never predicted this present state of abundance that his life has appreciably advanced to. YBNL is presently home to Young John and Pheelz, 2 of the industry’s most sought-after producers in the afro pop and dance categories. It also houses Lil Kesh, who in some opinions was the hottest contender for this year’s Next Rated and perhaps the most talented of the crew. There’s Adekunle Gold, an afro alternative singer/songwriter and performing artiste who is leaving significant imprints with notable releases in the industrial terrain, as with Viktoh, Chinko and DJ Enimoney – all factions that complete the pack, just for the sake of it.

YBNL has grown beyond just a music brand. It has evolved into a movement, having an ardent membership of blind-trusted loyalists and braggadocious youths, all laying claims to origins in the streets but yet faking benevolence should the need for such arise. Regardless, all of this has been made possible because one man dreamed it to be so and has vested himself into ensuring that dream one day becomes a reality. Reasons won’t be out of place if the industry decides to stand still for her very own – a talker and a doer, a mover and a shaker, a champion of the streets, a proud bred of the Western soil, an activist and vocal piece of the trodden – none other than Olamide Adedeji, king baddo!

  25. Dear Olamide, I am one of your reasonable and positive fans who want the best of and from you, you have came saw but haven’t conquered and I know you will, but you are derailing already, you have changed, the Olamide I knew isn’t here anymore, the Olamide that used to sing inspiring and sensible songs is gone, your albums keep degrading in terms of logical value and real esteem but surprising, the more you sing meaningless songs, the more your money and fanbase increase, I am happy for you indeed but till when will this continue, don’t forget you are ageing and people don’t sing forever, you used to inspire me, now you even disencourage me because when I wanna sing good rap songs the way I can, you make me realise it’s rubbish people want and you keep abusing rappers who rap in English, is it about language or about message? Y are you so bordered about language, do you have Inferiority complex?.
    That aside, Baddo, are you singing only for the street?, you claim Street but you live in lekki,k’mon, when you started you weren’t like this,and don’t you aim higher than the street, instead of you to sing songs that will make thugs aspire to achieve something and be someone great like you, you have made them think they are doing the right thing by being a thug so far the rich people hail them. Don’t you wanna be worldwide?, why do you wanna remain a local champion, the same people who support you now might turn their backs tomorrow, why have you brought up a lout like Lil Kesh,didn’t he hear your songs when you started, he used your platform as a foundation so u are the reason he is worse and so stupid, Olamide I love you, I want people to know you are the best but the way you are going, ts like u’ve reached your peak and you are diminishing, make reforms, be at the top of not only Nigeria but the whole world, please don’t take offence, I am just telling you what might help you, get back on track and prove your enemies you are the true king…written by a loyal fan….. Named youngstar, a rapper, pls contact me 07064294152
