The Senegalese-American musician Akon has expressed “regret” and admitted that he wishes he had signed Olamide Adedeji, commonly known as Olamide, years earlier. Earlier in his career, Akon signed the Nigerian music group P-Square to his Konvict Music record company. Akon praised Olamide’s talent and acknowledged that he missed the opportunity to work with him while emerging in the music industry. He emphasized that Olamide’s unique style and impact on the Nigerian music scene would have been a valuable addition to his record label.
The Senegalese-American artist Akon has expressed regret over not signing Olamide Adedeji earlier. At the time, he revealed that the YBNL leader was his favourite performer. In a Skype conversation with OAP Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, nicknamed Do2Tun, of Cool FM, Lagos, Akon admitted that he was sorry he had passed on the rapper and regretted not signing him when he had the chance to. Rapper Olamide Adedeji, sometimes known as Baddo or Olamide, is a native of Nigeria.
“I would probably say the one person in Nigeria that I wish I had signed is Olamide. Honestly, I wish I had signed Olamide because he would have signed a lot of new artists anyway. “Olamide was my favourite artist before he reinvented himself as a music executive. The first time we met, I told him he was my favourite artist,”
