The rapper is commercially known for his ability to switch between HipHop and pop with feelings of afro. Nevertheless, He promised to make this very album a HipHop album.This genre diversity has retained his credibility as a rapper, while also chasing the big bucks that comes from the pop sound.
The singles ‘Who you epp’, ‘Lies People Tell’, ‘Owo Blow’, and ‘Sere’ have all been rap singles which sit squarely at the center of the Hip-hop conversation. Olamide with the understanding of his roots in indigenous rap music has earned his credentials by spitting for the streets.
