Olamide is one of the biggest names in music today. When it comes to street music too, he is the godfather that has contributed some of the best songs around.
We dive in now to make a list of 10 of Olamide‘s best songs. We hope to do justice to this list. If you don’t like it, make yours in the comment section.
10. Sitting On The Throne
This song got a lot of people thinking that a war would spark a war among Olamide, Reminisce and M.I Abaga. But they laughed and shook hands over it. Listen.
9. Melo Melo
This song was Olamide at one of his best. He sang in Yoruba of course but took a retrospective turn with this one as he took stock of how far he had come. Melo Melo stands as one of his best till date.
8. Voice of The Street
This song was how he owned the leader of the street tag. He declared himself as the king of the street on this song and he has not looked back since then.
7. Eni Duro
Another classy Olamide vibe. This was the song that launched his career. This song was how he announced himself to the scene while he was with Coded Tunes and we love it.
6. Story For The Gods
One of the golden songs from his best years. 2014 was a good year for him and it saw him drop a number of top songs that connected with fans. He was on fire that year and this is one of the products.
5. Who You Epp?
Hay! This song ruled. In fact, we still say that slang today. Olamide has always had control of street lines and on this song, he went crazy on some of the lines and from it, slangs were born. He had Wande Coal and Phyno on the song and we love it.
4. Say Something
This song got played a lot too. Yeah, I was in NYSC camp when this was reigning. We doubled up to this song. Military drills and dances around this song. We could have sworn he was paid by the military to record this for them to drill us. Solid song.
The awesomeness of this song was more because it came at a time that fans were wondering where he was. Some even said he had faded out. Then he burst in and shut the industry down. Solid song.
Anthem. This song was an anthem. When you heard this song then, you started singing along. He knew how to drag fans along and his lines were hard then. One of our favorites. Pure rap.
1. Turn Up
We sign off with this last song. This song was released in 2013 and can still get you dancing right now. That was how good it was. The lines on the rap were tight too. Solid one.
