When thinking back on his rise from the slums to fame, Portable recalled how, before to the rapper’s intervention, he would play at events for a little N200.

“I went to London to collaborate with the best rapper in the UK, and it’s all thanks to Olamide,” he claimed, adding that he would have remained homeless otherwise. He assured me that I would succeed even if no one had faith in me. And it’s bigger than I could have imagined.

“I hold Olamide in the highest regard as a boss.” He gave me his sponsorship without expecting anything in return. The only man in the music business who has shown me love is Olamide.

Why I Rejected Record Deals With Olamide, Akon’s Brother – Mr Eazi

Famous singer and entrepreneur Oluwatosin Oluwole Ajibade, aka Mr Eazi has opened up that he rejected offers from Nigerian rapper and CEO of YBNL Nation, Olamide, and ace American singer Akon’s younger brother, Abou “Bu” Thiam, the executive vice president of Columbia Records.
According to him, the duo approached him separately to join their record labels when he began his music career but he declined because he hadn’t figured out what he was doing and also wanted his “freedom”.
Mr Eazi spoke in the latest episode of the Afrobeats Intelligence Podcast hosted by Joey Akan.
He said, “I remember going for ‘Ghana Meets Naija in Ghana. And that was where I met Olamide. He tried to sign me to his record label. He offered me a deal. Somebody else had also tried to sign me. Bu [Abou Thiam], Akon’s brother was the first person who tried to sign me.
 
“I declined because then I haven’t even figured out what I was doing. It was too early to sign. So, I didn’t sign to Bu.
 
“When Olamide gave me a deal, I knew that I hadn’t totally understood the business or what I was even doing so I declined. Everything was just happening so fast. One thing I knew was that I wanted my freedom.”
Mr Eazi also revealed in the interview that Jay-Z’s record label, ROC Nation, wanted to sign his hit song ‘Skin Tight’ but Wizkid “told me to do the deal only if they offer life changing money”.
”In reality to where I was in my life, the money they offered would have been interpreted as life changing money. But to me because of where I thought I was going, I didn’t think it was life changing money. So, I didn’t accept the deal,” he added.

What Motivated Me To Start My Record Label – Olamide Reveals

Olamide, one of Nigeria’s most successful and popular rappers, has revealed that ‘Sapa’ inspired his record label YBNL Nation, adding he didn’t want to spend unnecessarily and extravagantly.

 

The artiste decided to reinvest into the music business for wealth recycling.

The YBNL boss, who has signed artistes like Lil Kesh, Fireboy DML, Adekunle Gold, Viktoh, Davolee and several others, revealed in an interview with Nandi Madida of Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio, how he decided to make it his passion for music a business.

Speaking to the host, he said: “The world was in love with my stuff, (and) I was grateful for that. But, I also felt it was time to make sure I reinvested in that same thing that was making people love and appreciate me. It used to be just about passion, but I figured it was high time I stepped up, reinvested and made it a proper business.

“I set up my own record label and started signing artistes because I did not want all that money to just go wasting on ‘ballin’ (having fun). All that money had to go back into the business. That was how the whole thing started.”

Talking about his forthcoming ‘Unruly’ tour, the YBNL CEO said: “I think the last time I was on stage was last year at Mr Money (Asake)’s concert in London, United Kingdom. But, this December, I will be having my concert in Nigeria. Also, I will be going on tour next summer to the United States of America and Europe. I am going to be back on the road.

“My fans have been asking me to ‘come outside’. And now, I am ready. I have been on the ground, trying to put in work and get my stuff together, because the new wave is so crazy right now, and one has to figure out a way to be in tune with the times, which is not easy. So, I have been working on that for so long. That’s why it took me so long.”
