Olamide, Nigerian rapper, has put out the visuals for ‘Julie’, the 4th track off ‘UY Scuti’, his chart-topping 11th album.
The YBNL boss had earlier shared a snippet of the visuals on his Twitter page to his numerous followers.
Released yesterday afternoon, the less than two-minute video features Winny Pooh, an Instagram model. It is directed by Patrick Elis, renowned Nigerian video director.
The music video follows the rapper’s desire for an affectionate relationship –with his lover — void of deception. The visuals, however, ends on a melancholic note.
“Me nuh know why you give love to me| Me nuh bi Romeo wey you show me love| Make me cling onto thee| Baby, hear the chroma-phone weepin’| Tellin’ you all the secrets I’ve been keepin’| Love when you tell me| Baby, slide in and dip in, deep in| Give me your heart, mak’ me keep it,” he sings on the mid-tempo beat.
Olamide, who is fondly known as Baddo, has continued to pull the weights of fame in the Nigerian music scene. The 32-year-old rap star put out his debut studio album ‘Rapsodi’ in 2011, while he was still signed to Coded Tunes.
After releasing ‘YBNL’, his second studio album, he launched YBNL Nation, his independent label imprint, which has produced talented musicians like Lil Kesh, Adekunle Gold, Fireboy, and Chinko Ekun.
In 2020, YBNL signed a joint venture deal with Empire Distribution, a US record and music publishing company.
