Reasons Why Olamide May Remain A Local Artiste For Long

Ybnl Boss and Versatile Music artiste, Olamide aka
Badoo is one of the most respected and recognized
artiste in the Country…
His versatility to rap and sing and also fit into
different genres of music from trap to reggae to
fuji and many more has distinguished from The
crop of talented artistes in Nigeria today..
This brings one to the reason why the artiste has
not been duly recognized internationally and
outside Nigeria alongside his peers like Davido and
Why is Olamide name lacking in most international
awards and the talented artiste not getting
deserved attention from the outside World..
Note – Doing indigenous music is not an excuse for
lack of intl recognition. 9ice was invited to nelson
mandela and MOB0 and Yousuf won a grammy
with his local songs.. So doing local or indigenous
song is never an excuse..

1) Quantity Over Quality – Olamide has made
quantity is main goal..Flood the scene with songs
and songs till you reach a point of equilibrum and
then start to decline…
Olamide has failed to allow the people thirst for his
songs and his releases are not up to expectations
It gets to a point listeners are no longer gingered to
listen to what the artist will say as artist becomes
monotous and repititive.
The rapper is even gearing up to release a sixth
studio album.

2) Branding – Branding is also very much …. The
Kind of brand Olamide potrays is of the not too
internationally minded artist. He hardly dresses
corporate and potray his versatility in his brand..
He has even gone ahead to Brand himself a Local
Rapper. This type of image projected is the way he
is addressed..
He has even refused to meet up with more
influential managers and more serious minded and
music experts ….. The lack of Expertise on the side
of the management and consisting of influential
managers does bear its mark.

3) Appeal – While deviation from indigenous
music is not the point. Appeal is very
paramount….. Olamide style is not appealing to
the outside world.. Sometimes balancing works.. I
wonder if Hausas listen to olamide songs ? But i
bet more listen to 9ice ? Why

A little of more mature songs and english lyrics
might do the trick….Do something appealing to
every one and yet dont forget the minority. You
dont waste international features with Wale on
songs like papilo you go make us proud….

Give them what they love.. Trap,pop. Feature more
of their artistes and seek for international

Olamide is a Legend and will remain one…
However , breaking into the international market
Like Wizkid is not an easy job……

Olamide has too much talent than to be labelled a
local rapper… We want to see him topping the
billboard chart and copping his own BET award
soon too… Enough of the Headies and NEA awards.
