Award winning and talented rapper, Olamide, is undoubtedly one of the hottest artistes in the country at the moment. He ended 2016 with the release of his sixth album, Glory, and a concert in Lagos which was a sell-out success.
Even though the YBNL record label Boss and Bariga-born star has a son named Batifeori Maximilliano, not much is known about the woman in his life.
In an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop, the Durosoke rapper offered some insight into his love life. With a smile lighting up his face, he said, “I’ve actually been in a relationship for about 17 years now. As a matter of fact, she’s the most important reason I am where I am today. Her name is music.”
On what has been his driving force over the years, he said, “My major motivation comes from knowing that I came from the bottom, and I don’t want to go back there. I want to live a good life, and because of that, my working life is a relentless grind. I don’t want to go broke, and I don’t want anybody to look down on me. I’m still on top of my game because I don’t see myself as everything. I take advice from my mum, manager, and label mates, and they always help. They’re responsible for some of my ideas. Some things that people see and think is all about Baddo is actually their brainwork.”
Speaking further, he said, “I didn’t start out to be an average artiste, I wanted to stand out. Right now, I’m living my dreams. All I can say is that my life right now is a dream come true.”
