Olamide stuns audience with accent as he breaks long record at Headies, proclaiming “Street is still in charge.”

At the recently held Headies 2022 Awards, popular Nigerian rapper Olamide Adedeji, well known by his stage name Olamide, astounded his fans with his amazing Yoruba accent.

The YBNL leader won the Best Rap Album category by outcompeting four other candidates.

Olamide thanked his staff for their hard work in receiving the prizes during his statement at the 2022 Headies Awards ceremony. He was grateful to the Headies Awards’ organizers as well.

Olamide informed the crowd that he would speak in Yoruba since the street was still in charge as he exited the platform.

Olamide posted a photo of Asake, Fireboy, and himself on his Twitter page along with a thought-provoking comment.

Street shi wa in control, he wrote.

Olamide interrupted his long-standing Headies winning streak with his victory at the 2022 Headies Awards. He received his last Headies honors in 2015.

Kemi Filani remembers how Nigerians responded to a chart that showed Olamide’s influence on the careers of other well-known music artists.

A chart that circulated on social media listed the names of both established musicians and up-and-coming artists whose careers Olamide had influenced.

Zlatan, Naira Marley, T.I. Blaze, Bella Shmurda, Portable, Skales, Phyno, Jaido P, Asake, Lil Kesh, Adekunle Gold, Fireboy, CDQ, and other musicians are among the artists on the chart.

Each musician claimed that Olamide improved their life and careers, as shown in the chart created by a social media user going by the handle holuwaroyal.

Kemi Filani also recalled how Ahmed Ololade, better known by his stage name Asake, received online criticism for his epic response to Olamide’s impact on his career.

Asake famously broke down in tears when Olamide sampled one of his songs and signed him to the YBNL record company in an old video that recently reappeared online.

The footage also showed Asake celebrating his track’s victory by racing through the streets.

Asake recalled the astounding experience and explained how a single call from Olamide transformed his professional life.

One call from @Olamide, he said on Twitter, “and everything changed.”
