The streets have taken over as Olamide is starting 2017 off with a bang!
The YBNL boss, who is one of the most consistent and versatile rappers on the Nigerian music scene, has cemented his place as an international star beyond the borders of this country.
On Sunday, the ‘Abule Sowo’ crooner got major thumbs up for his music when US-based frontline radio station located in New York City, Power 105.
1 FM, blessed the American airwaves with Olamide’s brand new single – Pepper Dem Gang, off his ‘Glory’ album. The hot new jam was played by DJ Norie on Sunday during the Power 105.1 Big Up show. The excited Olamide took to Instagram to share the great news with a video.
The 27-year-old artiste who raps mostly in the Yoruba language, captioned it;
“This is major as fuck !!! I appreciate .. Last night on @Power1051 NYC Pepper dem gang got played out. Thank u @djnorie. # PepperDemGang.”
This event more than anything is an indication that the father of one’s music has gone mainstream even in the West and his fanbase/sphere of influence is extending beyond Africa.
We bet that everybody will want a piece of Olamide right now and though the rapper has often reiterated that he’ll never pay for an international collaboration since his mentor, Fela Anikulapo- Kuti never did, his undeniable hardwork and large doze of confidence will ensure he gets whats due him. How does a Drake-Olamide joint album sound?
