Call it a midas touch, or if na midas voice – all join. It’s no news that every song Baddo coughs on becomes instant hits.. if you be up Comer, you may need to look Olamide ‘s way for a collaboration soon.. (just saying).
With Who You Epp (pronounced help) now one of the hottest rap song in the country. Olamide has arguably become a powerhouse of back-to-back hits. The street OT Rap star, emerged from absolutely nothing and carved a niche for himself as the king of the streets.
In this article we’ll show you 5 music stars that have literally been nursed or have enjoyed Olamide’s influence/input and assistance to hit stardom. In the wake of this, there no need to contest the fact we that the YBNL boss deserves bragging rights when compared to his superstar colleagues who’ve helped none to stardom.
Olamide aided Phyno’s career growth by giving him a voice in South West Nigeria.
The two linked up for several collaborations with Phyno being the benefactor of most of them. Phyno was the first artiste to jump on Who You Epp freestyle. And we all know the reason why. The duo have taken their collaborations beyond music, it’s friendship, it’s brotherhood.
Watch every of Phyno ‘s major hits and you’ll find Olamide either jumping on the beat or featuring in the videos.
Presently, Fada-Fada is the no 1 street gospel jam, and yes Olamide is on it with his midas ‘voice’..
Lil Kesh’s career is bankrolled by monies from Olamide’s success. And when compared to others, Kesh is probably the biggest benefactor off Olamide’s success on this list.
Olamide has practically poured himself into this young man, so much that we all see him act the father figure to him, as far as the industry is concerned. He even went as far as starting one of th biggest drama of 2016, when he disrupted the hiphop Awards and destroyed thing backstage, cos he felt his boy Kesh was robbed of the next rated award, despite churning out back to back hits.
Olamide has groomed Kesh to a point of letting him float his own record label. He has put him on and also made the biggest song of his career happen, that is Shoki (remix) featuring Davido and Olamide. We hope he doesn’t relent.
Adekunle Gold is another artiste enjoying Olamide’s massive input.
With the Gold album gathering momentum, Olamide ensured Adekunle Gold had a label to call home and a producer to work with in Pheelz.
So far, Adekunle Gold has been able to release crispy video back to back , and a debut album despite being relatively new in the music business.
Some of us have been following Ycee’s career closely after his impressive single Condo featuring Patoranking. He went on to release another banger Jagaban but he didn’t get the attention he deserves.
What is the way forward? Olamide came in and blessed Ycee with a verse at his own wish (NOTE) on Jagaban (remix) and since then Jagaban became a hit and your boy Ycee became an instant star.
Omo Alhaji however dropped and since day one it’s bee a bomb! It’s currently one of the biggest Nigerian hiphop songs of the 2016 *dabs*
Pepenazi is one kid on the block that y’all have been underrating. But the new kid is not bothered and is going hard on it.
Personally, Pepe would do better if he is signed to YBNL, but trust me he would be doing worse if he hadn’t gotten the blessings of Olamide on several songs including Illegal and Adam.
Olamide has created a voice for Pepenazi in the game, up to him now to become a superstar like the other 4 artiste on this list
