Nigerian singer-songwriter Olamide in a recent interview with Africa Music Radio via Face Time on Apple Music 1, the ROCK hit maker discusses his new album, UY Scuti, his personal evolution, how he brings together Nigerians from all walks of life, and how he plans to support the next generation of African artists.
Who else would you like to collaborate with outside of Nigeria? Have you seen anybody in SA? Are you seeing anybody maybe in Tanzania that you’d really like to vibe with?
Olamide said in reply to this question, ‘I really like Cassper [Nyovest]. I like Cassper a lot. I like his music. I like Black Coffee. I like Master KG. And Sauti Sol from Kenya. I love their music as well.
I feel like I’m one of, if not the number one person in Nigeria or Africa, I’m one of the few people that their music can bridge the gap between the old and the young, the rich and the poor.’
I took it as a personal thing, like, “Bro, I went through hell before I got here. Now I’m here. If I have any opportunity to bring up anyone that I know, that oh, I’ll do anything to make sure that person make it.” You get me?
