Is Olamide’s “Pepper Dem Gang” Below The Hype? … My Thoughts

Pepper Dem Gang

Daniel’s Review

There was not much hype on The Glory album but somehow this track found a way to standout. First of all, credits should go to Young John for the groovy beat. Hearing “oh baby” alone will make your head shake.

However, YBNL new act Davolee had little to do on the song; he came last and a little too late. He and Olamide should have had more chemistry on the track. The song was basically about Olamide.

Rating – 3.5/5


Jim Donnett’s Review

This Pepper Dem song is tuneful and carries the typical styling of an Olamide song. By typical, I’m making reference to the fact that his songs, going by previous account, often come with the hit-status potential. So it is only proper that this would be the first of exceptional tracks off The Glory album.

This also was the track that welcomed the voice of his newest signee, Davolee, who we’re yet to get an official music release from since his induction to the YBNL movement. Regrettably, barely 30 seconds of fame is definitely an inconsequential feat for someone who has certainly got a lot to prove. Better consideration should have been given to the thought of having him featured on the track.

Young John kept the production pretty simple and with a very sparse arrangement of the song’s instrumentation. Tricky attempt though but genius result still. Although, I really wish the song was released as an independent single because for all we may not know, it just might have fared even better on its own. However, it is a little too late to hope now anyways.

Rating – 3/5

  1. Who cares?? This isnt the first time, we’ve heard meaningless songs gets overhyped, I just wonder when it will stop, I’m sure TX even got payed to post this so as to boost a dead song’s ugly potential, I’m quite sure after a video is shot for this song, and we get disturbed once more with the song, it will get a nomination in this year’s headies..Shameful !! *spits out* . But big respect to Olamide 6albums in a role ain’t an easy thing to do, he is a real team player and could remain relevant for the next 5years or more in the game if he signs the right act. Davolee although seems to have great potential but not unique in anyway,he is not better than chino Ekun who fell out of favour with the team after a couple of wasted years. I pray davolee makes it big with YBNL tho! But I don’t see him taking olamide’s throne or even sitting there at all. Big ups to every artiste struggling to climb to the top, focus on mastery of your art, there’s no fluke that can brings consistency and the timing is always different. God bless
