Love No Go Die, Wavy Level. Is Olamide Still Delivering To Your Expectation?

Posted by Jim Donnett on May 30, 2017 in Editorial, HOT!! · 38 Comments


Olamide

I thought the day would never come when our dear Olamide Baddo Sneh would be relegated from his position of revere in the industry, to the lower ranks. But how he still manages to command that revere is what remains a bewilder to some of us.

Guys, I can beat my chest and make bold to saying that if we were to draw up a list for top (abi hottest) male music sensations now, Olamide will fall short of even making the first-five count on that list. Although his formula for making, or isit delivering music now, hasn’t changed. The singles still come in like they were tidied up in a hush-rush and he hasn’t missed out on any year since 2011, dropping albums.

Could it be that we have finally woken up to the realization of the diminishing effect in his music since after Shakiti Bobo, which actually happened to be the last time he had a real hit on his hands? Do not get me wrong, Who You Epp, Owo Blow and Pepper Dem Gang all managed to cut across like music hits following certain strategic events that we experienced in the industry at their respective times. While Who You Epp rode on the wave of the competitive covers that later turned it into a viral sensation, Pepper Dem Gang thrived following the lack of good stuff to saturate the airwaves because of the dormant mood the beginning of the year took.

Now that Runtown, Davido, P-Square, Tekno, Simi, 9ice and even Wizzy baby have returned back on the charts in their domination conquest, it has become quite apparent that Olamide is slacking. A statistical result from an online survey showed that much of the hits on his name, cannot even be tied to musical endeavours. Rather, they were mostly pulled from news stories.

After The Glory album dropped, Olamide proceeded with the release of music video projects off the album. In his usual ‘done and dusted’ style, he moved on quickly after 3 videos to his first single of the 2017 year – Love No Go Die, which was received amidst plenty razzmatazz but soon died out with hardly any bang or buzz. The same eerie feel has crept into his life of features. Before now, Olamide would easily make the hottest contender for a category like the most featured artiste. But as it is almost mid-2017, Baddo can count the features he has done this year on all five fingers of one hand alone.

With the latest wavy single out now, one must wonder if it is a song laden enough with the potential to tear up the charts. It also otherwise stems a pondering thought that further brews questions like…

  • What exactly is happening – or has happened – with Olamide?
  • Why isn’t he piping hot and popping like before?
  • Could it be that his present ordeal is equally affecting the YBNL militia considering their music of late also suffer expressions from this dreary characteristic?
  • Will Olamide ever make it back to his glory days of Bobo, Melo Melo, Awon Goons Mi, Durosoke, Voice of the Street, First of All and their unforgettable, widely celebrated likes?

It leaves plenty to ponder about. But majorly, what’s a Nigerian music industry without the heavy influence of Olamide and his music street hits? Is it possible to think it, or even visualize it? Please share your thoughts.

  1. yes for sure..

    • The lyrics of Wavy level explained it all.. He says… They used to play me like ipod… That means there was a time I was the most played artist, then he said I used to be white chalk on black board… Meaning there was a time I was outstanding and popping … He then said: Now I get money like Akon… Do u think Akon is as rich to be compared to? No! He’s comparing his career to Akon’s, Remember there was a time Akon was popping but not now, Akon only got the money now…. Thats the state Olamide is in and he knows it.. Check me out on YouTube by searching for Ejimozy for more lyrics meanings

    • again, you are foolish and just seeking for attention with your rubbish analysis. gerrouta here.

  15. You don’t compare somebody who sings to somebody who do both (rap and sing) those name mentioned are people who sings what people want to hear imagine somebody singing for the G-boys. Wizkid is only rocking because of the western influence, davido on the other hand na hit, runtown get luck ni oo. Abeg no dey criticise when there is no point in doing so. If you wan talk about person wey don get low ranks for industry you can check some big labels, the choc boys, some guys in mavin even our empire mate brethren.

  16. Enemies Mind.Your.Own….its nonstop for Omo Adedeji #Baddo

  17. Olamide has dropped and dats final. But he has made his mark in the industry.

  18. For me olamide has lost it already. Do you think all this hit songs was only made by olamide. He got the help of his in-house signed artist, those guys inspired all his hits songs. And right now they are no more working with baddo everybody don go their own separate way. Getting Hit song would be alot of struggle for baddo now.

  19. why are you not analysing Marvin’s or choc city record…since wen av dey drop hit songs last?…why you hating on him,wen one is good,one is definately good…try and attend any of his shows if you want to clear ur doubt about him and see if fans won’t sing along wen performing “love no go die” or “wavy level”

  20. for great sure

  21. I must say dat olamide badoo is seriously engaged with the fact dat he’s a helping hand to upcomers from within his domain thereby putting up lyrics dat would have made dope jams to upcomers hit singles….. Thumbs up to u bro just know day obialu ije nwe una….

  22. love never dies, I know that..

  23. His songs are very hot.
    Super wazy

  24. Olamide still the best

  25. Wavy level is hit. just keep calm and watch it rise to top of music chart. who even take tooexclusive serious. that was how you people said shit abt Davido’s IF when he released d song.
    http://tooxclusive.com/editorial/davidos-new-song-hit-miss/ but d song is d biggest in africa nau. wavy level is a hit. olamide is not fading

  26. Olamide will never fall. He is still dey street king

  27. tooxclusive editors/writers you guys are stupid. Because the guy has been on you to stop putting out his content for free, that is y u decided to coin this. you guys should grow up, your blogs get patronized basically because you put news, music and happenings around Olamide out here. so if the free days are over, den y write shit. Grow up and stop being Petty. Look at the numbers on Wavy Level and Love no go die b4 u say rubbish. An artist falls when his numbers go down but dude not going down. still getting endorsements but you are here hating. Even, in the leagues of fellow blogs like yours, is tooxclusive still in the same place you use to be, please give yourself brains there.

  28. nice one bro
