olamide songs

For the past five years, Olamide has become one of the most consistent acts in Nigeria. By the end of 2015, he was YouTube’s most watched artist in Nigeria.

Olamide is perhaps the most-heard artist in Nigeria

All of his five albums – Rapsodi (2011), YBNL (2012), Baddest Guy Ever Liveth (2013), Street OT (2014), Eyan Mayweather (2015) – were successful. When the last one was released, the British pop star Adele was knocked out of the # 1 on iTunes Nigeria.

Since 2011 albums are released every year. Olamid’s formula for success includes the continual release of music in most rap and pop genres. For the following list, only songs of the rap genre have been considered, with the exception of Melo Melo, a unique element in the Bariga-bred rapper catalog.

While this list takes into account the indigenous nature of Olamid’s music, it also includes aspects such as lyrics, pun, rhyme and delivery, elements that are common in most songs in the hip-hop genre.

10. Jesus O’kola (Translation: Jesus has no tribal mark)

Produced by Pheelz, this hit came from Olamide songs precisely the second album YBNL, it speaks of his success, even though he does not belong to a group and lives in indigenous rap. He even provides an early Nollywood reference: “Olamide won l’aya bi Karashika” (Olamide scares like “Karashika” – a horror movie that Falz alludes to).

Aduke’s accompanying vocals give the tedious verses a happy uplift and give it a Polish look that is missing on any other song on the album.

9. Sit on the throne

This is one of the highlights of Olamide’s Baddest Guy Ever Liveth album. “Sitting on the Throne” is a laid-back song that contains almost no punchline or wordplay. Still, it’s a defining song, with its Pacific refrain that kills the people hoping for a beef between Olamide, MI, and Reminisce. He says in the chorus: “Fuck what you have heard, everyone is king for him.”

8. Rayban Abacha

“Rayban Abacha” is amongst olamide songs released as a single that was supposed to be part of a street mix that never saw the light of day, and has a seamless thread of punch lines as the first verse.

Olamide comments on the insularity of his Yoruba rap: “I run around and pick up some dough … I do not care if you do not hear me.” Elsewhere, he says, “I hack rapper hack, bimpe ewedu ni m’on.” (rough translation: I cut rapper as if I separate leaves from her stalk.)

7. Anifovoshe

A semi-biographical olamide song that recounts the childhood of the young rapper in the Bariga slums, where landowner threats and extreme poverty forced him to find himself. The song records the eponymous song from KWAM 1, and the video is enough to soothe the eyes, especially if you share a similar rag story.

Olamide captures the suffering of his childhood in the second verse in which he goes: “Sad sorrow and tears may be a catwalk; I have gained five of them.” (Worries and tears played so much with me and I was even upplayed afterwards.)

6. Loyalty to loyalty.

With the exception of “Local Rappers” by Olamide and Reminisce, “Hustle Loyalty Respect” makes other collaborations between the two a breeze.

Olamide goes on to say: “Ni Ni won every ka ni beef, beef is part of hip-hop.” (They say we should be rivals, rivalry is part of hip-hop). Reminisce responds to the second verse: “O tu wa ninu video, Mo ro pe e ni beef ni, attitude e yen da gan, Iwa yi, gift ni.” (They appear in his video.) Should not you be a rival, you must have a good attitude, your character must be a gift. ”

5. Melo Melo

A melodious song about two lovers, Melo Melo, is Olamid’s attempt at a love ballad with a violin that envelops the song. This song attracted Olamid neutrals and spoilers as well as fans.

4) Voice of the Road (V.O.T.R)

This is one of the best olamide songs on the YBNL album. It is more or less a commitment to the streets. He addresses those who want him to advise more on English than Yoruba. He asks her “Se Lil Wayne gbo Yoruba?” (Does Lil Wayne Yoruba understand?)

3. Eni Duro

The street anthem. This song, along with his stunning street video, has made Olamide a celebrity. “Eni Duro” is a nearly five-minute song with completely unconnected, but rightly set sentences. It’s a self-proclaiming song that strives not to be bumbling.

2. Ilefo Illuminati (The Bouncer of an Illuminati).

Olamide cites KWAM1, the Fuji artist he’s trying on ‘Anifowoshe,’ and modifies Julius Caesar’s “veni vedi vici,” suggesting that he will be in the music scene for a long time despite his rapid rise. The song uses eerie, semi-occult sounds that resemble Jay Z’s Ont to the Next One.

1. Young Erikina (Young Monster)

Referred to by some as the greatest song by Olamide, who never made it into an album. The young Erikina was released after the success of Rapsodi as a promo single. It uses the weird sounds that would be synonymous with some of his other rap songs. There is evidence of Ishawuru and Ayamatanga, monster beasts from 1990’s Nigerian television. The rhyme of ‘Young Erikina’ is flawless and eventually involves the use of three different languages in succession.

This are the only Olamide songs that went viral so far.
