I Have Been In A Secret Relationship For 17 Years – YBNL Boss, Olamide Reveals
Nigerian rapper and label owner, Olamide Adedeji popularly known by his first name, Olamide. He has also been called some other names over the years including Young Erikina, Yahoo Boy No Laptop and also Baddo, but the latter stands out.
Olamide’s story can be likened to the story of someone who rose from obscurity to prominence and has since stuck at the top by consistently putting in work.
In an recent interview with Sunday Scoop, the 27-year-old rapper offered some insight into his love life. With a smile lighting up his face, he said,
“I’ve actually been in a relationship for about 17 years now. As a matter of fact, she’s the most important reason I am where I am today. Her name is music.
On what has been his driving force over the years, he said,
“My major motivation comes from knowing that I came from the bottom, and I don’t want to go back there. I want to live a good life, and because of that, my working life is a relentless grind. I don’t want to go broke, and I don’t want anybody to look down on me. I’m still on top of my game because I don’t see myself as everything. I take advice from my mum, manager, and label mates, and they always help. They’re responsible for some of my ideas. Some things that people see and think is all about Baddo is actually their brainwork.”
Speaking further, he said,
“I didn’t start out to be an average artiste, I wanted to stand out. Right now, I’m living my dreams. All I can say is that my life right now is a dream come true.
