It’s fair to say that YBNL Records boss, Olamide, is one of the most consistent and hardworking artistes in Nigeria.
He has released a studio album every year since 2011, and a ton of club banging singles in between.
There have been some people who have voiced their opinion over his high work rate, saying he might soon run out of things to make music about.
Olamide, in a recent interview, laughed off this notion, saying he works in the studio everyday and that could never happen.
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.”
And it’s not just that Olamide is releasing songs, he’s releasing quality hits that have kept him at the top of the industry.
He added: “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.”
