3. Changing his stage name from G-Dogg to Olamide
Date: Between 2007 and 2009
There is no way of telling if Olamide would have been bigger or less popular if he continued to use the stage name G-Dogg. However, G-Dogg is not a Nigerian friendly name even for a rapper in Nigeria. Olamide made a wise decision by changing his stage name from G-Dogg to Olamide, his legal name.
