How Phyno and Olamide improved the popularity of indigenous rap
This is how Phyno and Olamide improved the popularity of indigenous rap.
Rapper and musician Olamide Gbenga Adedeji are from Nigeria. He is one of Africa’s largest and most well-known artists.
Since his official debut single, “Eni Duro,” Olamide has made significant progress. He is currently one of Nigeria’s most well-known rappers.
Before he showed up on the Yoruba rap scene, there was DaGrin(link is external), whose reputation increased after his untimely death. Prior to both was the Lord of Ajasa, but his rule was far too brief to have much of an impact.
Olamide’s five solo albums and one collaborative album can be used to analyze his career development.
He keeps both Yoruba and English records. While contracted to Coded Tunes, he released his debut studio album Rapsodi in 2011.
Phyno Fino is the stage name of Chibuzor Nelson Azubuike, a Nigerian rapper, singer, songwriter, and record producer.
He began his musical career in 2003 as a producer and is well known for his Igbo language rapping. No Guts No Glory, his debut studio album, was released in 2014.
Illbliss, also known by his stage name iLLBLISS, is a Nigerian rapper, entrepreneur, and proprietor of “The Goretti Company,” a talent management company that helped launch the careers of many artists, including Phyno and Chidinma.
Phyno has been consistent for over a decade now since he came around, practically basking on longevity and originality with Igbo rap to promote cultural orientation and preservation.
Phyno is considered the pop luminary who took elements of their culture and reimagined it for the future, although Nigga Raw now known as Mr Raw tried but Phyno conquered and became a global superstar.
Also, he technically carries the hopes and pride of the Igbo nation just like the way the West can lean into Olamide as an emblem of their art, Phyno charges the East
However, the love and devotion that comes from his cultural relevance and representation make him the most influential on the coast..
Phyno flagship annual event that is known as Phynofest, is one of the biggest concerts in Nigeria, apart from Phyno, no other artists play a major concert outside Lagos
Therefore, his presence and relevance have made him an exemplary light from the east, but whatever good he has done, he is still topping that now and leading the way in Nigeria as the first modern Nigerian artist to hold a major concert.
