Nigerian rapper and YBNL boss, Olamide blew hot on stage on Saturday over the politics of the country’s music industry. He described the so-called politics as ‘f**king’ and ‘stupid’.
He lamented over the situation where a musician won’t be famous if he doesn’t have a person to support him.
The rapper who made this lamentation at the 4th edition of ‘The Redtv Rave’, on 30th of November 2019, urged the audience at the event to ‘change the narrative’.
“What we stand for, what we represent is a change… I need you guys to break that barrier of that f**king, stupid industry politics whereby if you don’t have anyone supporting you, no one will hear you,” the musician said.
He also took some time out of his performance to promote the golden boy of his record label, Fireboy. The rapper described Fireboy as “a raw talent”.
He urged the fans to keep supporting Fireboy and keep streaming the artist’s debut album, “Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps”.
The 13-track album which Olamide’s YBNL released on November 25, is a mixture of emotions and collection of soulful sounds.
