It is indeed a proud moment for Nigerian rap musician, Olamide Adedeji, aka Olamide Baddo, following special recognition given to him alongside talents like Asake and Fireboy DML who were discovered by his Yahoo Boy No Laptop (YBNL) label.
The Nigerian superstars were recently honoured by the State of California for their immense contribution to taking the afrobeats genre global.
Taking to Instagram, Matt Haney, a representative who wrote a commendation on behalf of the State of California and Assembly District 17, heaped accolades on the trio and praised their immense efforts in setting worldwide trends in Afrobeats music. Haney wrote on Instagram:
“I had to show some love especially for Fireboy who recorded “Peru” here, with the chorus “I’m in San Francisco jamming..”. Much love and blessings to these brothers and respect for all they contribute with their creativity and brilliance. We recognize you and celebrate you worldwide.”
