I wished that Olamide would sign me. Bella Shmurda Discusses Music Issues in Open Letter.

Street-hop sensation Bella Shmurda has spoken out about his difficulties adjusting to life after success in the music business and his former dream to be signed by Olamide to his YBNL label.

On her web series “Flow With Korty,” Bella Shmurda discussed these topics and others with well-known YouTuber Korty. She also discussed how she entered the spotlight without having any prior experience in the music business. Upon reflection, he added, “At one point, I hoped Olamide signed me because everything was just so difficult for me. Nobody could put me through, so I didn’t know who to truly ask.

While noting his improvement, Bella Shmurda said, “At least I know some things now, if I’d known then, I’d be better off.”

The singer has so far piqued fans’ interest with two lead singles, including Omah Lay featuring Philo and New Born Fela. His debut album, Hypertension, is scheduled to be released on October 26.

Adekunle Gold will always be appreciative to Olamide for giving him the chance to succeed as an artist.

Let’s converse! Which Young Jonn is more popular, the producer or the singer? Which is superior?

Udomboso Young Jonn is the stage name of Nigerian record producer and audio engineer John Saviours. 

He is primarily known for producing “Story For The Gods,” a critically acclaimed hit off Olamide’s Street OT album. 

One of the top record producers in the Nigerian music scene is Young Jonn. This is a consensus among all music fans.

The young and gifted man shifted to singing at the beginning of this year and has since released singles that have topped the charts. 

However, after signing a recording contract with Chocolate City Music, Young Jonn produced the 4-track album “Love is Not Enough.”

Hit songs including “Normally” and “Dada,” which later had a remix version with Nigerian music sensation Davido, were taken from the body of work. 

More recently, he released “Xtral Cool,” a love-themed song that is now climbing the charts. 

Young is a better producer in my opinion, as well as a talented vocalist and composer. He has demonstrated that he is adaptable and diligent.

After all of that, we would like to hear from you. 

Which Young Jonn is more popular, the producer or the singer? Which is superior? 

Let’s hear from everyone.

Zlatan Applauds Olamide For The Numerous Nigerian Artists He Has Assisted.

Olamide, a legendary rapper, has received praise from Zlatan for his contribution to the growth of the Nigerian music business. 

The father of one, who also received his big break after working with Olamide on the song “My Body” in 2017, has been riding that wave ever since, becoming one of the most popular indigenous talents in the music industry.

On Wednesday, September 21st, 2022, a video that went viral on the internet showed the rapper thanking Olamide for supporting him and other Nigerian musicians. He continued by citing figures like Adekunle Gold, Ycee, Dotman, Fireboy DML, Naira Marley, Pheelz, Young Jonn, and Asake to support his claim.

Without a doubt, Olamide has made a significant contribution to the game, and strangely, the list keeps growing for the YBNL frontline act and owner.

If Zinoleesky had been signed to Olamide’s YBNL label, do you think he would have performed better?

With the signing of some of the best and most promising musical stars, Naira Marley’s Marlian Records has over the years revealed itself to be nothing more than a “cruise label” in disguise. 

Naira Marley announced the debut of his label on December 30, 2019, during the Marlian Fest, with the automatic signing of 4 acts: Zinoleesky, Mobhad, Fabian Blu, and C Black.

Despite this, Zinoleesky has shown he has what it takes to compete for the top spots in the Nigerian music industry by releasing hit after hit and fiercely competing for the “Next-Rated” award, which he ultimately lost to Buju. A prize that his employer Naira Marley didn’t get any credit for. 


Because Zinoleesky evidently isn’t receiving the proper vibe to help him become greater than he already is, his potential keeps being constrained in his label.

Despite having everything necessary to do so, Zinoleesky has never been the star of a show; why is this?

It is obvious that Marlian Records is just a smokescreen for smokers looking to be in style when you look at the organization, from the boss to the entire unbeatable squad.

The Marlian Fest, which has Naira Marley as the headlining act and label boss, as well as all the other artists on the roster and various affiliates, has also lost its relevance from when it first began. 

Less than 500 people attended the Marlian Fest in the past two years, which began with over 4000 people at the Eko Convention center in Lagos.

Due to the over 5-hour show delay in the last edition, many attendees left the stadium before the performance even began. 

Only an hour would be left for Zinoleesky to perform for his admirers and have another opportunity to show the world who he is in a different realm.

A label that never wants to improve and would rather seek affiliation with artists who perform at worldwide events. 

The manager announced his intention to hold his Marlian Fest in 2021 at the SSE Arena Wembley in London, but the event was cancelled. 

Let’s cut the chase guys. 

Would Zinoleesky Have Performed Better Had He Been Signed to Olamide’s YBNL Label, Do You Think? 

Do you believe Zinoleesky himself is content having his name on the Marlian Record?

Can Asake Retaliate Against Fireboy For Indirectly Chasing Lyta Away From YBNL?

In all honesty, Fireboy is progressively taking a back seat in YBNL as Asake receives more and more attention and buzz. 

Although Asake is currently not on anyone’s level, including Olamide, Fireboy is still quite popular. He is scorching and sizzling hot.

Even if Asake may not be Olamide’s primary priority, it is natural to pay closer attention to the newest member of the team. Normal range. 

It’s possible that Fireboy feels uncool in YBNL and wants to leave like Lyta. 

I’ll explain, yes. 

Do you still have any memories of Lyta’s 2019 YBNL incident? 

In YBNL, history is set to repeat itself… What a wonderful moment it is to live.

Olamide didn’t drive Lyta out of YBNL or chase him away. In addition to feeling it, Lyta also felt neglected and that Fireboy was receiving all the attention, thus he made the decision to leave the label. 

The exact same scenario is about to occur as Fireboy can become upset with how everything is currently developing around Asake.

It’s acceptable to feel that way because we are all just human. If the label starts paying more attention to another artist on the roster than of me and you, it will not be cool at all. 

Check out the tweet below: 

You noticed Makinde’s Tweet up there, right ? 

I’m not the only one who is considering this, as you can see. It’s also being noticed by other people. 

Well, allow me to pose this query to everyone: 

Do you believe Asake will be able to remove Fireboy from YBNL, as she did with Lyta? 

Now let’s hear from everyone. 

Please comment.
