Nigerian rapper Olamide is arguably the most consistent musician in the Nigerian music industry. He is a product of hard work and persistence.
The YBNL Nation boss, in a new interview with The Guardian UK, spoke on why he chose to be very hardworking while reflecting on his journey into music.
Olamide said growing up was very tough for him and he had always wanted to have a better life that differs from his childhood. He disclosed that hardship motivated him to hustle hard.
In his words; “There were days when being able to afford three square meals was a big deal for my family. All of that motivated me to hustle hard – I wanted to see the whole world and experience different cultures from what I grew up seeing.”
The multiple award-winning rapper added that there are many people with great potentials in the ghetto, contrary to the perception that those living in the ghetto are violent.
