Why Olamide deserved to win The Future Awards Africa 2015 Prize in Entertainment

olamide1 (1)On Sunday, Olamide Adedeji, more popular by his first name or simply Baddo, was named winner of The Future Awards Africa Prize in Entertainment.

The Shakitibobo crooner, won the award ahead of Yemi Alade, Tanzania’s Vanessa Mdee, South Africa’s Cassper Nyovest and Uganda’s Anne Kansiime.

It was a no-brainer really.

Olamide has had a terrific year.

Take a look at the songs on every countdown and chart, Olamide is splattered everywhere. Where he is not releasing his own music, he is on a collabo.

Heck, even his YBNL artistes are ubiquitous too.

Yes, Yemi Alade has grown in leaps and bounds and Cassper was a worthy nominee. But Olamide’s 2015 is unrivalled.

The rapper dropped his 5th album in 5 years. It was only fair enough he took home the prize.

Olamide should be a lesson in hardwork, consistency and creativity to other artistes.

At this pace, he might be up the hill and over in 2016.
