5 reasons to listen to Olamide’s 5th studio album
Pulse Music gives you 5 reasons why you should listen to "Eyan Mayweather."
The YBNL rapper who has averaged an album a year since 2011, has gone one better with a new LP.
“Eyan Mayweather” contains 20 tracks, with four singles from the project earlier released. They include ‘Bobo’, ‘Matters Arising’, ‘Melo melo’, and ‘Lagos Boys’. Interestingly there is no collaboration on the new album.
Pulse Music gives you 5 reasons why you should listen to the album.
Because you are a fan: Olamide is genuinely one of the most loved artistes in the country, and an album from the man would speak dearly to the fan in you. You don’t even need to play it. Just own an Olamide album.
Rap albums are a rarity these days: Nigeria has had in excess of 26 mainstream albums released in 2015, and only 5 are rap albums. With such a dire Hip-hop deficiency in the country, a rap album by the hottest act in the country.
The hottest singles are contained in it: Check any chart in this country, and you definitely will see Olamide’s music nestling at a comfortable position. ‘Bobo’, ‘Lagos Boys’, and ‘Melo melo’ are all songs that will surely be a good addition to an album.
Supporting Nigerian music: Everyday there’s a new story about pirates exploiting a lack of structure to rob the artistes of their money. But now we have various digital distribution channels to boycott the theft. Buy or stream the album online and the money gets right into the hand of the artiste. Olamide deserves your money.
Symbolism: This is arguably the only Nigerian mainstream album without a feature in it. Olamide trusted in his dynamism and ability to carry an album solo. This was a gamble and it will be interesting to see how it played out.
