He stated this during a chat on told Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio.
According to him; “I feel like I’m one of, if not the number one person in Nigeria or Africa whose music can bridge the gap between the old and the young, and the rich and the poor.” The Wo hitmaker also said that he went through hell trying to make it as a young artiste and that’s why he is passionate about supporting up-and-coming entertainers.
“I took it as a personal thing, like, ‘Bro, I went through hell before I got here. Now, I’m here’. If I have any opportunity to bring up anyone that I know, then I would do anything to make sure that person makes it,” he said.
Speaking on the reception that his latest album, UY Scuti has enjoyed, Olamide said; “It has been amazing. It’s like I just started my career all over again and trust me, if I knew that it would have been this big, I would have been doing this for a very long time.
”I feel like if there was no older version of Olamide, who had been through the street struggle, there wouldn’t be this version of Olamide that does ‘chilled’ music. But, in a way, it still appeals to street people.”
