| ARTISTE SPOTLIGHT: OLAMIDE
With the wave of talents in the mainstream Nigerian music industry, it makes one marvel on what is yet to come in the Nigerian Hip-Hop scene.
With wonderful young talents like Mo’cheddah, Wizkid, Skalez, and the new hip-hop prodigy, Olamide; it makes for celebration because these young ones have come to take-off from where the oldies would pass the baton.
Olamide is the man to take-off from where the late Dagrin stopped. When Nigerians lost Dagrin, no one would have thought that within this short frame of time, there will be another like the great Chief Executive Omo-ita. Just like Dagrin, he raps in Yoruba and his flows is similar to that of Lil’ Wayne.
Christened Olamide Adedeji, he is under the management of 9ice’s ex-wife, Toni Payne and he represents for Coded Tunes. This young dude from Bariga, Lagos is here like the first day of the year, just like he introduced himself in the first line of his first single “Eni Duro”.
Olamide’s hit single “Eni Duro” has paved the way for him to launch himself into the mainstream music scene in Nigeria. The song has received massive requests and airplay on both radio and television media.
Olamide, who is one of the hottest acts now, he will be releasing his much anticipated first album titled "Rap-So-Di" on March 21, 2011. The double meaning album title gives an insight to what to expect from the super talented rapper. Rap-So-di simple tells you this album shows his poetic prowess. Rap-So-Di is blessed wieh 15 hot tracks as well as a bonus track dedicated to a friend and colleague the late Dagrin. The album will have wonderful acts like Wizkid and ex-husband of manager, 9ice.
He will with this album show is versatility and lyrical prowess, as he has a big shoe to fit into. Nigerians are definitely expecting a lot from this young dude, and from what I have seen he will be on-point.
