Olamide ‘Badoo’ is 31 today; checkout this inspiring throwback of himself and his brother DJEnimoney


Sunday inspiration.

Olamide Adedeji.

Where do I even start? With his rapping finesse? With his uncanny ability to groom others to become even bigger stars? With his unusual virtue of keeping long term relationships as healthy as. For example with Phyno, Wizkid? His ability to drop one album every year and still be as relevant as possible?

I mean where exactly can one start if you decide to talk about Olamide.

People he has brought up? Well you and I know how big a history he shares with Phyno. In the early stages of their career, both of them were mutually dependent on each other.

Then we can talk about Lil Kesh. We can talk about Pepenazi, we can talk about his brother DJ enimoney and we can still talk about the biggest legacy Badoo has, singer Fireboy, a wonder hit maker.

Is it his ability to cook up trends? Shaku shaku that has revolved into zanku was founded by him. You remember the shakiti bobo dance? That was Badoo too.

Is it his hit making prowess. Let me not even get started. From goons mi, to Lagos boys, to story for the gods, to first of all, to real MVP, to fada fada with Phyno, to science student to the most recent wonma do off the 999 ep. I mean it’s been hit after hit with Olamide.

For more than 10 years now he has been in the game and today is his birthday.

Badoo didn’t start up one day then blow up the next night. It took him very very long. The throwback picture below is big proof. Stay inspired guys.
