3. Olamide (Nigeria)
Coming through! Issue!
Olamide completely missed out on #TheList in 2015 because he simply didn’t rap. The infection Indigenous-Pop tune “Shakiti Bobo” was the wave at the time. This year, the English and Yoruba-speaking rapper switched it up and gave us one of the rap anthems of the year: “Who You Epp“, a song which earned him the #3 spot on our “Hottest Artists” list.
Olamide bagged 2 awards – Best Street Hop Artiste for “Who You Epp?” and Best Rap Single for “Eyan Mayweather” – at the #Headies2016. “Who You Epp?” also won the “Song of the Year” award at #SoundcityMVP2016!
Baddo’s yearly Concert tagged #OLIC3 was a massive success, yet again.
