Olamide Adedeji A.K.A ” Baddo” is a Nigerian rapper and entrepreneur. He came into limelight with his hit rap single “Eni duro” back in 2011. He can be said to be the most consistent rapper in Nigeria. Having released eight albums in seven years. Many have tagged Olamide as an “hardworking artist” and will do anything to stay relevant in the music industry.
What we also noticed about this superstar is his contentment. While many are busy seeking for international recognition, the rapper has settled for what he believes is the best for him.
In one of his songs, titled “Prayer for Client”, he said he was not interested in any international recognition. All he wanted was to feed his family and we can agree that he is doing a wonderful job at that.
Olamide Baddo is the founder and C.E.O of YBNL record. The same record label that produced the likes of Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, Chinko Ekun and Vikthor.
Olamide’s hustle sort of looks like Teni’s.
Ever since Teni’s arrival on board, she has won the hearts of so many Nigerian music lovers by steadily dropping hits such as Uyo Meyo, Fargin, Case, Askamaya, Lagos and also has some collaborations under her belt such as Pray with Phyno.
According to Naija’s top entertainment portal, 36Naija, Teni Makanaki will edge off competition from Yemi Alade, Tiwa Savage, Seyi Shay to solidify her position as Nigeria’s number one female artiste.
The Dr.Dolor Entertainment won the Soundcity MVP award over DMW’s Peruzzi. Watch out for Teniola Apata (Teni) in this year because she isnt keeping up with the momentum.
