18. Olamide’s Brotherly Relationship with Wale Folarin
The talents of Olamide not only caught the ears of Nigerians domestically, but abroad as well. Prior to meeting Olamide, MMG rapper, Wale, mentioned that he was a huge fan. Wale stated that he was introduced to Olamide’s catalog by his cousins that are very in tune with contemporary Nigerian music. Once the two formed a friendship, Wale became so impressed with Olamide’s sound that he suggested Olamiderelease a project solely in English. Both Wale and Olamide collaborated songs, “Make Us Proud,” and “Allelu;” on the latter, Wale references the “Gunman Pose” in his verse.
In an Instagram debacle, a troll insults Olamide’s sandals and Wale comes to his brother’s defense. This display of loyalty and protection shows how strong their bond is.
