Olamide’s “Poverty Die” was released in November 2018. It was the song Baddo used in closing the year after a mixed year in terms of musical releases and hits.
The song didn’t only talk about the negative effect of poverty, but it also served became a prayer for many as the lyrics were more like asking for spiritual assistance in converting poverty. As expected due to the content of its message, the song became a lover of radio personnel as they always played it at every chanced they get.
The song also has a pretty decent video which was released in December, but it didn’t really do well as it has just over 2.3 million views. Olamide’s Poverty Die on its arrival was met with positive responses from music fans. The song which talked about the ill effect of poverty on humans was well received as it was even adopted by many as a prayer song to help raise their optimism for a better financial life.
