God Gave Me My Talent, So I Can’t Run Out Of Songs- Olamide

Speaking with Punch, Rapper Olamide has declared that he can;t ever run out of inspiration or songs because his talent comes from God, and as long as he exists the songs will keep coming. In his own words, he said;

“Whenever people say things like that, I just laugh. Talent comes from God and if you have it, then you have it. Even as I’m chatting with you, I can get inspiration for a song and I would immediately note it in my mind.

As long as life exists and things happen on earth, I will always have the inspiration to sing. Music is life and life is music.


If I were to release all the songs I have ever recorded, they would scatter the whole place. I work in the studio everyday and there are many songs I have recorded that I am yet to release as singles or in albums.”

On how he has managed to remain relevant, the singer said, “Most importantly the grace of God that has kept me. I don’t do this by my power or might.

 I also go with the flow and keep my ears on the ground. I know about the new slangs that are spoken on the streets and sometimes, I turn them into songs, which resonate with people because they can identify with the content of the song.”

  2. Be careful ooo! Watch your tongue because of enemies. Silence should be golden for you, and thank God. Decades ago, a famous Yoruba actor/producer told a reporter that he was gifted with dreams of scripts and movie ideas. That was his last famous movie and he is hardly known today. Where is Lord of Ajasa today? Story? Watch what you say!
