The reason I didn’t sign Olamide’s “Omah Lay”

Olamide Adedeji, better known simply as Olamide, is a rapper and music executive from Nigeria. He has now explained why he did not sign artist Omah Lay to his YBNL Nation label.

In the beginning of his career, the YBNL leader sought to recruit Omah Lay, but the singer told him he was already signed to another label.

In an interview with British-Nigerian media personality Adesope Olajide, nicknamed Shopsydoo, Baddo—as he is affectionately known—made the admission.

Someone brought me Omah Lay’s song ‘Bad Influence,’ and I had to go like searching for him on Instagram,” Olamide remarked. I told him in a message that I want to sign him, but he said, “I already have a [recording] deal.”

The rapper also admitted that he suffered from depression for around four years after his songwriting dry spell.

After the success of singles like “Wo” and “Motigbana,” he said he regained his “swag.”

Songs like WO, MOTIGBANA continue to have a magical effect on me to this day. I was sure I’d never be able to find myself again. “I was losing my mind,” he said.
