The Olamide effect

With over one billion global streams, Olamide is one of Nigeria’s biggest and most successful stars to arrive out of Africa. Emerging equally at home emoting over buoyant afrobeats rhythms, Olamide optimistically rhymes over a pulsing trap beat. In fact, the trailblazing talent is known for his multilingual-style tracks that showcase his artistic abilities in English, Pidgin and Yoruba. In doing so, he has established essential afrobeats classics – from “Wo!” and “Motigbana”, to “Fada Fada” featuring Phyno, and “Kana” featuring Wizkid.


Not letting up, Olamide has also founded YBNL Nation, which he has since built into one of Nigeria’s most influential and recognized musical labels to date. Since forming the imprint more than a decade ago, he has helped launch the careers of AfroBeats royalty. Such as Fireboy DML, Asake, and Adekunle Gold, just to mention a few. Nonetheless, global tastemakers and prominent publications including Billboard, Pitchfork, Forbes, Rolling Stone, and The GRAMMYs have also endorsed the African music superstar.

What’s next?

Since stepping into the spotlight with his iconic 2011 debut drop arriving in form of an album, Rapsodi, has since released more than a half-dozen popular projects! Including his most recently released 2021 album, UY Scuti, which has gathered over 200 million streams, as well as his 2020 highly successful Carpe Diem, which highlighted huge hits like “Infinity” and “Loading”. Fast forward and so far in 2023, every track he touches becomes gold. Whether it’s “Kpe Paso” with Wande Coal or the CKay-assisted “Trumpet,” as well as his new highly anticipated album Unruly set to release this summer, Olamide is proving why he is one of the world’s top talents! Additionally, Asake arrives with his sophomore album Work Of Art on the heels of their trendy track!
