The veteran Nigerian singer and ‘Motigbana’ crooner made this statement in an interview with Grammy.

Olamide Adedeji, the very popular rapper and CEO of YBNL, better known as Olamide, has said that he likes to scout and feature talented artistes who do not have a platform because he was once in their shoes.

 

The ‘Rock’ crooner said this in an interview with Grammy.

 

He said:-

“I and Phyno have been cool friends from way back, over nine years now. We have always been cool, doing collaborations almost every year. But the other guys (artistes) on the project are very new on the market. That’s something I do on almost every project. I always try to scout for guys that are very talented but don’t have the platform, people supporting them and all that. I went through that stage, and I know how it feels.

 

“I meet a lot with people from different sides of Africa, different countries in Africa. From my limited knowledge, I think Afrobeats is on the global stage right now. We are getting lots of love from all over the world. Everyone is praising Afrobeats right now. The artists and record label owners and everyone around Afrobeats culture, they’re putting out their place to make sure that Afrobeats lives longer and longer.”

 

The father of two who recently dropped an album titled ‘Uy Scuti’ also revealed that American singer, Lauryn Hill, was a major influence on his current album.

 

Olamide said:-

“I was basically thinking about doing a timeless project that isn’t about having club bangers or street acting. I just wanted to make beautiful, chill music. While working on the project, I listened to a lot of Lauryn Hill. I think her music was my major influence on this project”.
