4 Things That Are Currently Affecting Olamide’s Music Career (He Just Get Over No. 2)

Published

on


Olamide Adedeji is unarguably one of the best rappers in Nigeria but obviously, he’s currently struggling to maintain his spot.
Below are the four factors affecting the indigenous rapper.

1. Game Switch

Lemme throw you back to the old days when Olamide started with Eni Duro, Young Erikina and so on.
He’s then labeled the ingenious rapper but after some years Baddo made it clear that rap game is not monetizing saying “rap o ja wo”. He then switched the game to Lamba which relieved him from receding.
But recently a whole lot of artistes are on the space to outshine the YBNL boss on the Lamba extra which he seizes to sustain, Naira Marley & Zlatan as an example has been the real competitors in the game.
It’s high time for Olamide to switch back to his primary genre as an indigenous rapper and take it to a climax level. Instead of “Choko Milo” and “Pawon” something related to “Young Erikina” would be largely welcome.

2. Too Many Artistes Under Label

Apparently, he’s got over this issue as Fireboy remains the only artiste in the label but it has contributed more to his drop.
Many years back, Baddo appears to push only Lil Kesh in all ramifications as Adekunle Gold seems to be self-reliant and Chinko Ekun hustles solely. If you disagree with me, I will ask you how many music videos Chinko Ekun had under YBNL compare to Lil Kesh?
But the last generation of artistes under the label are obviously dependants, the likes of Lyta, Limerick, Davolee, Picazo Rhap, Fireboy, and Yomi Blaze are all looking up to their boss, which automatically mount pressure on him as he was later forced to release all excluding Fireboy to relieve pressure.
You can’t be pushing yourself and others at the same time, one will affect others. That’s just the law.

3. Lack of Publicity Stunt

Olamide seriously needs to work on this area, he’s not an artiste that usually jump on a trend or create controversy.
Unlike Davido, who always create something to talk about whenever he’s about to drop his song. If Davido doesn’t fight someone, someone will fight him during that period. Sense won’t kill Baba Imade.
Even Wizkid, Burna Boy, Naira Marley, and many can’t write off the efficiency of social media.
Olamide took publicity stunt slightly as he shocked everyone with his latest EP 999 with zero anticipation. Now the question is, where’s the 999 album?

4. Pay Before Downloading

Nigeria is not the right place to monetize music especially from a street artiste, 80% of Olamide fans are pure street and it a wrong target to expect payment from that sector.
Your priority should be the conversion rate of listeners, numbers of streams not the income. In all sincerity, I strongly believe Olamide become to be a struggling artiste after making his song unavailable to his fans.
Only a few people will genuinely make payment to have Olamide songs and it’s affecting his music career.

Nicki Minaj agrees “Essence” should be song of the year at the Grammys

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
