Popular Nigerian superstar Olamide Adedeji simply known as Olamide has narrated why he decided to produce his own music.
The YBNL Nationa record label founder disclosed in his interview with Prime News, Olamide disclosed that he used to sketch his feeling in order for him to understand how he wanted his music to be.
“‘UY Scuti‘ album was my major [foray] into Logic. I started production because sometimes I don’t know how to explain to everyone, apart from a few people, how I’m feeling,” Olamide said.
“But most times, I’m not always at home. I’m out on the road and don’t have the luxury of doing the producer’s life.
“So I have to always make sure I record my ideas and tell my guys to teach me one or two things. I’ll make something tiny and skeletal, just put down the idea.”
Quizzed about the techniques he deployed when producing the 2021 body of work, Olamide added: “My producer (P.Priime) has a church background.
“He’s also a choirmaster and plays almost every instrument, from piano to bass, guitar to trumpet—you name it. In most cases, I don’t know the right words for all the things in my head. I have good ears for music.
“I didn’t join a music school. I didn’t join the choir. I know nothing about that. I’m just a street dude that fell in love with music, so all I do, when I sit down, is trying to explain that. This is how I’m feeling. This is what I want to hear.”
