Olamide Adedeji popularly known as Olamide is no doubt a household name when it comes to the Nigerian Music scene.
‘The baddest guy ever liveth’ was the guest of another episode of The Truth with Olisa and it was mind-blowing. Olamide talked about the true story behind his popular hit track ‘story for the gods’, his relationship status, how he started music as a career, how he produces songs and more.
The Ogun state born who is of an Ijebu origin studied Mass Communication at Tai Solarin University of Education. When asked about his relationship, the singer who recently welcomed a baby boy from his longtime girlfriend said he is not ready for marriage right now. He said when everything is set, he will definitely get married.
Olamide acknowledged the likes of Don Jazzy, Phyno and Vector, saying their works have been helping the music industry to move forward. When asked if he is a member of a particular political party he performed for during 2015 election rallies, the singer did not give an answer as he obviously succeeded in avoiding the question.
There has been so many reactions about Olamide’s popular hit, ‘Story for the gods’. When Olisa asked the sensational singer what he thinks about people’s reaction to the song as a song which glorifies rape, Olamide said:
”For me, I know the way people get things twisted sometimes. People don’t leave in your head, they don’t understand the idea behind everything. I’ve been just cool with all the reactions. It is not from a real life experience but it is a rather just a party song, a ‘lamba’ music and something everyone can go to. That’s the genera idea all the time when i’m making music. I just wanna do something people can groove to. If i wanna pass a message with a song, I will know I wanna pass a message but if I want a proper ‘lamba’ song, I will do it. So story for the gods is a proper lamba song.”
