Olamide Adedeji, a well-known Nigerian rapper better known by his stage name.
Olamide, dazzled his fans at the recently held Headies 2022 Awards with his amazing Yoruba accent.
In order to win the Best Rap Album award, the YBNL leader bested four other candidates.
Olamide thanked his crew, who had worked relentlessly to win the honors, during his address that was delivered at the 2022 Headies Awards night. He also had praise for the Headies Awards’ organizers.
