Music star, Olamide Adedeji, known professionally as Olamide, has said that he went through hell before making a breakthrough in the music business.
In an interview with okayafrica.com, the music artist said he was close to many established artists who didn’t lift a finger to help.
“ I didn’t feel good about that and I took it upon myself to always try and help anyone worth helping around me, if I make it. I’m not sure I understand why you want to overlook or ignore a talented person that has something to offer. It doesn’t take anything from us to share our blessings; I love sharing mine and spreading love because it’s lonely at the top, you don’t want to be there alone,” he said.
Olamide said he liked working with artists who were focused and go-getters.
He added, “I believe if you’re confident enough in yourself, and you believe the sky is enough for everyone, you won’t have issues with investing in another to achieve their goals because at the end of the day, either or not you invest in them, someone else will do it anyway and y’all will still link up at events, backstage and all.
So, if you have the means to invest, and you really like an artist, why not do it and do it like you really mean it. I see no reason why I shouldn’t support people while I’m doing my thing. So long I have the strength and finance, why not?”
