MUSIC CRUSH MONDAY: OLAMIDE- Should Rapper Go On A short Break?

Baddo might really need to go on a short break. Not really a break, but a kind of decoy recess to re-frame his work rate. This is a desideratum to him. It will help him design a new formula, with anew and renewed renaissance of his music flow in direction of how hed put out his records. This is all he needs right now.

I don’t really plan to put Baddo on the spot of negativity. This is not a tug. I understand art. I understand creativity, I can relate with how emotionally attached music artistes can be with their art. It is an inspiration that comes from within, and any time they face criticism, it goes really deep to their soul, it hurt, it wounds. This one thing is the truth.

The Y.B.N.L figurehead is one of the most hard working artistes in the country. His work rate, the output and the outcome is extraordinary. He has been consistent with his art since his humble beginning with Eni Duroin 2011. He has built a castle not only for himself, on his way up, he shouldered his goons along. This is beautiful. This is also the truth.

In the space of one year, Wavy level” crooner has been dropping hit back to back. His banging songs includes Omo Wobe, “Pepper Dem Gang ft. Davolee, Owo Blow. In 2017 he has dropped over 4 songs. These includes Wavy Level, Love No Go Die, Ringi Ringi and the latest which is Summer Body ft. Davido.

He has been on a solo formula. That formula orchestrate his work rate. It determines how he drops songs, the flow, the sound pattern, the lyrics, the type of songs. The party jam, the feel food music, and the love songs. The formula has inhibited him with the no slag moves with his records. The formula is the ‘Oliver Twist of his career. It is asking him for more, more and more.

He is not the only one with this formula. Tekno and Runtown are also with a similar formula. However, Olamide is the subject on the discussion table today.

As a music artist, your music is all you have to give. It is what is endearing people to you, it is your brand, and the receivers of your art are your fans. Therefore, you have to care about these back end receivers of your art. Your ride or die core fan base, the kernel music enthusiast that admirers your art. They are the ones that consume your output through, streaming, buying and downloading of your music. They care about you, although others hate.

You have a duty to also pay attention to what they say, how they feel about your music. Especially, the pulsating music lovers like Nigerians, who are so quick to pour eulogy, express affirmations only when everything about an artiste and his music is going wavy. But, are also very swift, potent and fatal to troll, jibe and rubbish an artiste when things are not coming out the way it is used to be.

Although, these nucleus-like lovers of an artiste work can still stand for them no matter how incorrectly and whirl their music is, they are some others who are quick at saying the truth. Some fans are saying the truth to Olamide right now, and he has to listen to them.

It is time someone point out that these theme of army that loves his music, some of them are beginning to find it ugly with his formula. This one formula that defines the Yoruba rapper is fading, it is loosing it grip, the push, the fire. It is as though Baddo is dropping songs with the approach of timbo timbo las calabar, -this might be a hit and this might not be a hit mentality but let me just drop it, after all it my song.

Some of the music lovers are not getting along with him anylonger because of the weakness they have found in his new song “Summer Body” ft. Davido. It is as though they’ve been enduring for a while, and it looks as if “Summer Body” with the last straw has broken the camels back finally.

This one thing that Baddo needs to do is go on a short and refreshing break. He needs it right now more than ever, especially now the trolls are rolling in. He needs to listen to what his fans are saying about his craft. Maybe that will put him on another wavy level. Maybe, just maybe he needs to fine-tune his team. He needs the no sir guys around him now. The people who are not afraid to tell him the truth, like this song right here won’t pop don’t drop it.

He should understand that the north easterly wind that sails the boat is no longer coming from the easterly direction that is favorable. It is time to drop the paddle, check the compass, understand the direction of the wind and redirect the boat to sail without turbulent.

Baddo might really need to go on a short break. Not really a break, but a kind of decoy recess to re-frame his work rate. This is a desideratum to him. It will help him design a new formula, with anew and renewed renaissance of his music flow in direction of how he’d put out his records. This is all he needs right now.

This should be his cheat. The break, the short and refreshing one. Not like he will be off the scene totally, or like he should be afraid of losing relevance, no! Not at all. He is got the talent, the vibe, the drive and passion for the game. The break is for another direction, another wave, the break is for the doing away with the old formula that determines and controls his output, and bringing a fresh, purposeful formula that will set him on another wavy level with a new drive and direction. This is the one thing Olamide needs.
