Olamide Adedeji, popularly called Olamide Baddo is a Nigerian hip-hop artist born on March 15, 1989.
Olamide Baddo is a street king in Nigeria when it comes to the rap game. He is famous for his outstanding indigenous raps; but nowadays, he often goes commercial on his songs in order to accommodate the rest of his non hip-hop fans.
The popular and versatile singer played a vital part in the invention of 'shaku-shaku', a popular dance step in Nigeria which later became acknowledged globally.
As a ghetto child who grew up in the streets of Lagos, Olamide worked hard to map his way to the top. In fact, he easily ranks as one of the greatest indigenous rapper from Nigeria.

The talented Baddo released his debut studio album titled Rapsodi while he was still signed to Coded Tunes. Most of the beats for this album were produced and mixed by the legendary ID Cabasa.
Rapsody was indeed a successful album before he released his greatest studio album (according to many) titled YBNL (Yahoo Boy No Laptop). It was this album that paved way for his label imprint - YBNL Nation; which has become a popular record label in Nigeria and beyond.
The YBNL album contains 20 great songs from the prime Olamide. Some of these include:
Olamide is the first Nigerian to sign an endorsement deal with Cîroc.
