Many Nigerian music and movie fans will remember Sexy Steel who was a prominent figure in the entertainment industry in the 2000s and early 2010s.

According to Sexy Steel, when he used to visit Coded Tunez alongside other stars like 9ice, Reminisce, and Lord of Ajasa, he noticed that a young Olamide always sat quietly in the corner observing as the stars interacted and made music.
Sexy Steel shared that Olamide’s humility and willingness to learn from others helped him to become a superstar with a vast understanding of the Nigerian music landscape.
Echoing Sexy Steel’s sentiments, ID Cabasa who mentored Olamide and under whose record label he released his debut album ‘Rhapsody’ stated that Olamide learned from the mistakes of the stars ahead of him and this helped him to avoid making the same mistake.
After gaining mainstream attention with his single ‘Eni Duro’ in 2010, Olamide Baddo would go on to become one of Afrobeats’ most decorated and illustrious music stars. The rapper reached the peak of the industry as an artist while also replicating the same as a label boss.
