How Olamide fought for us to be respected at an event – Ex-Usher

A Nigerian lady has recounted her memorable experience with ace rapper, Olamide Adedeji during an event sometime ago.

The young woman known as @jummychuu said she was working with an ushering company then and their supervisor was being very mean and rude to she and her colleagues.

According to her, it was an event that artistes attended and Olamide was among the lineup.

She said that when he saw how the female supervisor was treating them, he stood up for them by asking the director to send her away.

@jummychuu noted that the singular act is the reason she would always respect the YBNL founder.

She wrote; “Why Olamide Baddo will forever be an OG to me.

Back when I used to do ushering jobs, one lady the director kept in charge of artists and ushers was rude to ushers, Olamide legit asked the director to walk her out or he’s going to leave. The lady left the room so ashamed 😩”

Meanwhile, Twitter Influencer, Daniel Regha said Grammy-winning singer, Damini Ogulu aa Burna Boy should not be put in the same category with Olamide, Wizkid and Davido.

The social commentator said Burna is still an upcomer when compared to the three abovementioned artistes.

Regha made the statement while featuring on Doyin’s Corner hosted by Big Brother Naija star, Doyin David, noting that when OBO, Baddo and Machala were the hottest artistes on the scene, Burna was nowhere to be found.

He further said Olamide has more hit songs than most of them which is why he finds it funny when people mention Burna’s name before the YBNL founder.

Daniel Regha said there is a set for every musician in the industry and there are people who started buzzing at about the same time as the ‘Odogwu’, it just so happens that he became more successful.

The popular Twitter user further explained that the same way one would not put Tubaba in the same list with Wizkid and Davido, is also how the Last Last crooner is not in the same set as them.

Speaking on how big Burna is, Regha accredited it to streaming era, saying that if the popular singers from the past had come out now that streaming platforms exist, most of their songs would be hits.

He said; “Burna is still an upcomer compared to Wizkid, Davido and Olamide. When those artistes were popping, Burna was nowhere to be found…Burna is mostly popping now because he is in the streaming era.”
