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.
