Naij.com has published an editorial on the new song of Olamide Wo and tagged him as a razz musician.
Read the part below;
The last song of Olamide Wo could be his way of being at the top of the Nigerian musical food chain again. In other words, the song is an ode in the streets.
This year, Olamide did not really hit the heights that many expected it to reach based on its track record of being a manufacturer of success in series. I mean, Olamide was the guy who gave us hits like Who you Epp and Bobo.
These songs will always ensure that it is never forgotten in the Nigerian music industry. After releasing his sixth studio album Eyan Mayweather in 2016, One’s father struggled to launch this mega-song that would bring him to the level of Wizkid and Davido musically.
In time, Davido released If, and Wizkid released Come Closer ft. Drake, the head of YBNL has released about five songs – Journey Of A Thousand Miles, Letter To Milli, Pepper Dem Gang ft. Davolee, Wavy Level and Summer Body with Wavy Level and Summer Body is the newest.
The two songs were badly received by the public with Wavy Level collecting more than 720,000 views on YouTube and Summer Body having 1.4 million. Abyssal numbers for a musician of the status of Olamide.
But all this is about to change with the release of Wo, his latest single. So far, the song has received mostly positive reviews with much reference to the fact that Olamide has returned to its roots.
He may have embraced a pop style of making music, but what made his music different from others is the way he manages to mix each day on the street in his words.
Criticize his style ‘razz‘, but if you wanted to know the last shortbread, you only had to listen to his songs.
That was missing in his last outings, but with Wo, he managed to come back. The Young John produced a track even rejected a social media challenge (the #Wochallenge).
Winners have the chance to win N1million and a chance to appear in the video. Maybe the song will be the redemption of Olamide.
Badoo read the article or maybe he saw the tweet alone and he gave a brazen reply of “Happy New Year”, which, of course, means that these are not news, that all World knows he is a Razz Musician!
