Olamide Baddo, a well-known Afrobeat singer, explains the unpleasant incident that left him feeling both irate and ashamed.
Olamide said in a recent interview that, before his hit song “Eniduro” catapulted him into the spotlight, a senior musician had humiliated him by sending him to get food.
According to The Nation, Baddo said it happened when he was working with his boss and producer, ID Cabasa, many years ago.
In his words;
“I was in the studio when this senior artist came in to record a song, and he said he was hungry. Who else will he send to buy food if not me, who was the youngest in the studio? The money he gave me was not enough for his meal, so I decided to add my own money. I even used my money to pay for transportation. When I got back to the studio with the food, guess what this guy said to me?
“Cabasa, tell this your boy to give me my change. If he wants money, he should tell me, and I will give it to him. He should not use a trick to steal my money. I almost got angry, but one look from ID Cabasa calmed me down. Today, the guy is one of my biggest fans, and he is planning to do a song with me.”
