Olamide, who just dropped his eagerly awaited tenth album, “Unruly,” on Apple Music Africa Now Radio, spoke with Nandi Madiba about his wish to resume touring. Olamide admitted that his fans, who have been pleading with him to go on tour, are also driving him to want to hit the road again.
He also mentioned that he put off going back on the tour while he worked hard to catch up with the current Afrobeats international ascent. Olamide has been at the top of the Nigerian music scene for more than ten years. His music has made him one of the continent’s most popular performers, and his talents have altered the commercialization of local rap and street music in Nigeria.
Olamide not only manages YBNL, which he founded in 2012 after quitting ID Cabasa’s Coded Tunes, but he is also a successful musician. Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, Fireboy producers Pheelz and Young Jonn, and most recently Asake, are just a few of the artists the label has produced.
Olamide claims that he started YBNL so that he could put his money back into his passion rather than blow it all on revelry. In addition, August 9 saw the release of Olamide’s milestone eleventh album, “Unruly,” which was preceded by the songs “Trumpet” with CKay and “New Religion” with Asake.
