Bella Shmurda Credits Olamide for Pivotal Role in His Musical Journey


Nigerian singer Bella Shmurda has underscored the pivotal contributions of acclaimed rapper and YBNL Nation boss, Olamide, to his burgeoning music career.

In a candid conversation on the latest episode of the London 90 podcast, Shmurda expressed profound gratitude towards Olamide, asserting that if his children were to inquire about those who aided him in life, he would prioritize mentioning Olamide even before his own mother. “If my children ask me who helped me, I’ll mention Olamide first before I mention my mother,” Shmurda emphasized.

Highlighting Olamide’s enduring support for African music, Shmurda lauded the rapper for his unwavering commitment to promoting the continent’s talent on the global stage. He commended Olamide as the lone African artist of international acclaim who continues to champion African music awards, contrasting his dedication with that of others who prioritize international accolades over local recognition.

“Olamide is the only top artiste that is successful internationally and still supporting African music awards,” Shmurda affirmed. “Others won’t want to come for Headies Award but they can spend millions to go to the Grammys.”
