‘I Can’t Run Out Of Songs’ – Olamide Baddo

With the fast rate that popular rapper,
Olamide Adedeji, aka Olamide
Badoo, churns out songs, some of his
fans are understandably worried that his
tap of inspiration may stop running at
some point.

Olamide is arguably the Nigerian singer
who has released the highest number of
songs (both his and collaborations) in
the past four years. Most of these songs
end up as hits and this makes many
wonder how the Bariga-born wordsmith
makes it happen.

In an exclusive chat with PunchNg,
Badoo told ‘doubting Thomas’ that they
have nothing to worry about because his
spring of inspiration won’t run dry
anytime soon.

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.”

Speaking on how he has been to able to
remain relevant, Olamide said, “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.”
