No beef between Olamide and Adekunle Gold
Though there is no bad blood between Adekunle Gold and the Yahoo Boy No Laptop (YBNL) leader, Olamide Adedeji, well known as Baddosneh. Both singers are still intact as family as nothing is currently wrong with their relationship. No bad blood, no exciting fights, no shades, attacks and juicy gossip as expected in quarter of the society.
However, the rumour in town that the Adekunle Gold is no longer signed to YBNL is true. The Orente singer is no longer signed to the label. His contract is expired, and there have been no talks of a renewal.
Sources in the know said that both acts have since disconnect their businesses and moved on with a great understanding, rooted in love, trust and goodwill.
According close associates of the YBNL head honcho, Olamide never signs an artiste beyond two years. Olamide himself does this from a good heart. “All he does is to find young talents, who are hungry to push forward in life with their passion, signs them up, funds them and allows them the creative control to make music in every way they deem fit.”
“Look at the trend, Viktoh, Lil Kesh, and Adekunle Gold; they have all been through Olamide’s school of coaching, and have come out to be exceptional artistes. Lil Kesh left last year on expiration of his contract, and Adekunle Gold is doing same now. Though they may no longer be signed to label, they still associate with the YBNL, which still manages their careers,” the source stated.
The source also explain that stance is Olamide’s modus operandi as record executive, stressing that when he picks an artiste, he gives him or her two years to grow, get their act together and leave.
“Olamide has always maintained that stance. He doesn’t want to hold any artiste down. When he signs you as an artiste, he gives you two years to grow and shine, then leave and hand forward the baton. The only thing he demands from you is pay it forward by signing other upcoming artiste. That way everyone grows.
“If all Nigeria established artistes adopt this model, in no time, we would have a lot of successful young talents, who will grow the positivity pool and create a wave of greatness and goodness. That’s why rapper Davolee was brought in as a replacement.”
