Olamide Discusses His Reason For Launching YBNL Records

Olamide, popularly known as Badoo, a well-known Nigerian rapper and music executive, has disclosed the concept behind his record label, YBNL. Olamide stated that he began signing new musicians in order to reinvest in the company that was providing him with cash and reduce wasteful expenditures.

The CEO of YBNL Records stated this during a talk about his highly anticipated album, ‘Unruly,’ with Nandi Madida of Apple Music’s AfricaNow Radio. Speaking of his impending ‘Unruly tour,’ he disclosed that the last time he was on stage was last year, at Asake’s event, and that he will be hitting the road shortly.

In other Olamide news, the rapper drew controversy for hugging Don Jazzy during the latter’s most recent album listening event. Following the release of the Unruly album, Don Jazzy and other famous people attended a listening party that Olamide hosted at the club, the library. After acknowledging everyone, Don Jazzy approached Olamide and, as a result, quickly hugged him without exchanging pleasantries.

While many anticipated that they would remain together after the hug, it was the opposite as they went their own ways. The drama had ensued during and after the 2015 Headies Awards, when there was some squabbling between Olamide and Don Jazzy, which Don Jazzy, in a recent interview, said he regrets.
