He claimed that the YBNL leader was his favorite performer at the time.
Akon expressed regret over not signing the rapper in a Skype interview with OAP Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, aka Do2Tun, of Cool FM, Lagos.
Senegalese-American singer Akon has regretted not signing Nigerian indigenous rapper, Olamide Adedeji, simply known as Olamide or Baddo, some years ago.
He said the YBNL boss was his favourite artiste back then.
In a Skype interview with OAP, Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, aka Do2Tun, of Cool FM, Lagos, Akon said he regrets not signing the rapper.
“I would probably say the one person in Nigeria that I wish I had signed is Olamide. Honestly, I wish I had signed Olamide because he would have signed a lot of new artists anyway.
“Olamide was my favourite artist before he reinvented himself as a music executive. The first time we met, I told him he was my favourite artist,” Akon stated.
