Nigerian Rapper, Olamide is the hot topic currently on Twitter for various reasons- none of which he started but just fans going at each other over the rapper’s relevance in the music industry.
While the root cause of the conversations is not clear, Mp3bullet.ng found out that one of the issues started after a list of rappers of which Olamide was amongst was listed and fans were asked to pick the rapper of the decade.

Olamide proudly sang local rappers but you’re using international collaborations to troll him, someone that has said numerous times that he’s not a fan of it, these Olamide’s slanders are forced.

Olamide and Wizkid produce magic everytime they work together.
From Omo to Shan, to Kana, to Confam Ni, to Totori etc.
Two legends whose friendship can not be dented by the unnecessary comparison on Twitter.

Nigerians will gladly refer to Drake as a rapper even with his numerous pop songs but when you mention Olamide they will tell you they don't consider him a rapper because according to them "he doesn't rap anymore", ori gbogbo yin ti buru seh 😂😂😭
