- Top Nigerian rapper, Olamide, recently spoke on the love and acceptance his music enjoys in many parts of the world
- The YBNL boss said he is not the type to try extra hard to push his music outside the country
- Olamide added that he did not even do foreign collaborations in order for people in other countries to know him
Much-loved Nigerian rapper, Olamide, spoke in a recent interview with Goldmyne TV on how surprised he is to discover he has fans in many parts of the world.
The music star said that whenever he sees that he has fans in any country other than Nigeria, he is usually surprised. According to him, he never thought his works would leave the shores of the country.
Explaining the reason for his surprise, the YBNL boss said he was not the kind of artiste who usually puts effort into getting known outside the country.
Olamide also said that he did not even do collaborations with Pan-African artistes in order to get known by people in their countries.
In his words:
“If you pay attention properly, you will see that I’m not the type that, I don’t even try to struggle or try extra hard to push my music outside Nigeria or anything.
"I didn’t even try to do Pan-African collabos or what not in order to get numbers from other countries so it is very surprising to me when I see my music doing so well outside Nigeria.”

This is quite interesting seeing as one thing used to measure the success of an artiste in Nigeria is the level of reach they have internationally.
A number of Nigerian celebs have been known to court international collabos and we cannot fault them.
Just recently, Legit.ng reported that Nigerian superstar, Davido, collaborated with US-based singer, Enisa, on a track.
They were recently spotted on set together as they shot a music video for their work.
While on set, Davido tried to teach Enisa to speak pidgin English and it was captured in a funny video that later made the rounds online.
Davido was seen trying to get her to speak pidgin with the correct intonation. He taught her how to say ‘how you dey’ while explaining that it meant ‘how are you’.
