Then Olamide then finally wrote a song, went to the studio, recorded it & it became a monstrous hit (OLAMIDE – ENI DURO), rumor has it that ENI DURO wasn’t actually his first song.

4. IS OLAMIDE ARROGANT?

Some people may think of Olamide Adedeji as an arrogant rapper. This is possibly attributed to his lyrics, which often do not go down so well with other artists. For instance, in his track “Ghost Mode” where he collaborated with Rapper Phyno, he rapped that he has achieved more than what other artists have despite them having been in the music scene much longer, people may call that arrogance but I call that FACT. Olamide as a rapper have truly accomplished a lot of things in the industry. A large fan base all over the world, over 4 MILLION followers on Instagram.

5. GAME CHANGER

One thing that differentiate Olamide from other artists is his style of music. Other than being a new breed of rap, he is also known to be quite outspoken when delivering his lyrics. Some people may view his music weird but it appeals to quite a large number of people.

6. CONTROVERSY

About a year ago during the Headies award, Mavin Records artist, Reekado Banks won an award so Olamide came out & started ranting that Banks doesn’t deserve the award but ex-YBNL artist, Lil Kesh deserved it. It caused a beef between Mavin Records & YBNL Nation.

7. RELATIONSHIPS

Olamide have been in a lot relationships but the one Olamide truly loved whole-heartedly was Aisha Suleiman.

The pair is believed to have started dating in 2014, long before Olamide became a mega superstar in the Nigerian music industry.

The rapper finally proposed to Aisha on her birthday in early 2018.

8. NET WORTH

Olamide wasn’t born with a silver spoon, he grew up on the streets of Lagos faced with a hard and challenging life with only a dream of making it big one day. We can confidently say that the champ has indeed broken forth and currently living the dream. He is currently worth an estimated over $12 million which is not bad at all.

9. GENRE OF MUSIC

One notable aspect about the music done by Olamide is the fast rap. This type of music genre is still in its early stages in Nigeria where majority of the people prefer the high energy, fast-paced party popping jams. However, Olamide has managed to bring change by incorporating new skills into his rap music.
