Olamide, popularly known as Baddoo, a Nigerian ace musician and owner of the YBNL music label, has released the tracklists for his upcoming album, UY Scuti, which is set to be released on the 18th of this month.
Phyno, a prominent Igbo rapper, is featured on the album, which features ten tracklists plus a bonus track for a total of eleven tracks.
Olamide and Phyno’s meteoric ascension to the top of the pop charts has defied popular belief that “local rappers” can’t make it in hip hop.
The idea is that the form is too American, too foreign, to truly succeed in Nigeria. As a result, several rappers like MI, Mode Nine, and other well-known rappers have had dalliances with the west.
Take a look at the tracklist below.
Following the revelation of the tracklist on Olamide’s Instagram account, many of his fans and followers have praised him, with some pointing out that Phyno is always on Olamide’s album, indicating that the two have a strong friendship.
