Olamide Is A Song Factory
Olamide says he cannot run out of songs to sing.
The indigenous rapper told his fans not to worry as his source of inspiration will never run dry.
Olamide said this in an interview to reply ‘doubting Thomases’ who feel he will soon run out of ideas, since he has produced one album every year since he started rapping professionally.
He said, “Whenever people say things like that, I just laugh. Talent comes from God and if you have it, then you have it. Even as I’m chatting with you, I can get inspiration for a song and I would immediately note it in my mind.
“As long as life exists and things happen on earth, I will always have the inspiration to sing. Music is life and life is music. If I were to release all the songs I have ever recorded, they would scatter the whole place. I work in the studio everyday and there are many songs I have recorded that I am yet to release as singles or in albums.”
“Most importantly the grace of God that has kept me. I don’t do this by my power or might. I also go with the flow and keep my ears on the ground. I know about the new slangs that are spoken on the streets and sometimes, I turn them into songs, which resonate with people because they can identify with the content of the song.”Olamide's 6 albums include Rapsodi (2011),YBNL (2012), Baddest Guy Ever Liveth (2013), Street OT (2014), Eyan Mayweather (2015) and The Glory (2016).
