Olamide has revealed he will never dole out cash for any international collaboration because his mentor, the legend Fela Anikulapo Kuti didn’t pay to get recognised abroad.
The YBNL boss said this in a new interview with HipTV. When asked if he would consider paying, like his contemporaries have done, he blurted, “Ogun kill international collaboration!”
“Because Fela no even do any international collaboration before dem recognise Fela for international market,” the ‘Bobo’ rapper said, adding that he remains in the spotlight because by God’s grace he works hard to represent the street. “We are not bothered because we rep the street, and the street is the majority.”
Recently, there have been major collaborative projects between Nigerian artistes and their international counterparts, the most famous being Wizkid X Drake’s collabo hit One Dance.
