“Where are our heavyweights Phyno and Olamide?” Nigerians asked at the 2016 MTV Africa Music Awards.
On the night when Africa converged in Johannesburg to celebrate the best acts on the continent at the 2016 MTV Africa Music Awards, Nigeria stood proud with Wizkidwinning the most trophies in pop music.
But in Hip-hop, where Olamide and Phyno rule the country with a choke-hold, Nigeria failed to pick up any award. All of the honours were centralized in South Africa, where Cassper Nyovest, AKA, Nasty C, and Emtee are ruling from their country. Ycee and Falz also held the forte for the country, with performances and nominations, but sadly, they were not enough to bring home the efforts.
Guess you all know Ola Dips has been Signed to Reminisce’s record label, LRR/EDGE Records. Read HERE
OlaDips dropped back to back hit singles and was featured in so many tracks last year under Ob9ja management, It was glaring that he had caught the affection of so many Label Bosses, Including the YBNL Label boss.
As a matter of fact, a good questionnaire would have predicted Olamide signing Ola dips. The big question is what went wrong with nature?.
After weeks and months of silence the YBNL C.E.O, Olamide confirms his admiration for the young rapper, but insists he would love some competition, He further noted that He shares almost the same style with “Chinko Ekun“, with just a little difference, It would be hard branding Oladips as a YBNL Artiste because it would implicate that one of them changes style. Quite reasonable from Olamide, He’s not only and artiste but also a business man that understands branding andthe elements of marketing.
He further stresses that Oladips can always stake a competition and keep other young rappers on their toes, If he’s signed to YBNL, YBNL might enjoy a monotony and Oladips might not be able to live up to his full potential because of lack of competition.
Above all The YBNL Boss wishes him well and hopes he enjoys a successful career at LRR/EDGE Records
