Known for multilingual tracks that showcase his ability to rap and sing in English, Yoruba, and Pidgin, Olamide moves toward broadening his musical horizons on his upcoming album titled Carpe Diem, in a bid to explore new influences and show off his range as a vocalist. To flag off this journey, he shared the bass-heavy Eru, which was released to much acclaim earlier in September. He amps the energy surrounding the project’s release this month with Green Light, accompanied by a music video that attempts to bridge the parallel that is his evolved style and the old Olamide.
Produced by P.Priime who’s said to have produced the majority of the songs off the album, Green Light reveals a sunny new side to Olamide, widely considered Nigeria’s voice of the streets for his no-nonsense street influenced bars.
“Music has always been my savior, so I thought for once I should share with the world what happiness sounds like to me,”
Olamide says about the acoustic rich single. The Clarence Peters directed video complete with rich hues, does well in promoting this other facet Olamide wants to introduce us to.
