Olamide Adedeji, Nigerian rap sensation, streetpop legend, and mastermind behind YBNL Records, has reemerged with a new creation: Unruly — his 10th studio album. With a career adorned with accolades, including numerous album-of-the-year wins and a knack for shaping rising stars, Baddo has once again brewed an album brimming with the potential to stir success.
Olamide’s reputation for consistently churning out compositions of the highest echelon lent itself to weighty expectations, especially for this, his 10th studio album. With a reputation to uphold, he was poised to impress — and impress he certainly did. His flair for exploring various genres while retaining his signature style is very evident in this project. He traverses across drill, amapiano, etc, while maintaining core elements of his unique streetpop sound.
The 15-track album displays Olamide’s artistic prowess, further magnified by his collaborations with other talented music stars, including his own protégés, Asake and Fireboy DML. This roster boasts the inclusion of BNXN, Mavin Records’ sensation Rema, and CKay, with production credits from Eskeez, Magicsticks, and P.Prime.
As the curtain falls, on this project, we stand on the precipice of what could be Olamide’s most profound musical exploration in a while, an embodiment of his evolution, growth and enduring influence.
