Olamide 999 Album – Did Olamide Disappoint Or Live Up To The Buzz?

It’s over a year since Olamide last blessed us with a project. The last time he did , it was the heavily criticized Lagos Nawa the one we thrashed after we listened. Terrible.

Since then , a lot has happened , especially with Baddo. He’s struggled to score hits , a new baby mama has emerged and new artistes have joined and left the crew.

But when Baddo teased 999 , it was quite not expected. 999 on expectation looks to be that project our lives have been missing. The buzz on social media was huge.

Still , did Baddo disappoint or live up to the buzz?


Overall , Olamide’s 999 is quite experimental and sees him testing the long-forgotten hip hop waters he once uses to dominate in. But this time around ,

things have changed.

While on one part of the album , he talks about pain and struggles he’s experienced as an artiste , the unnecessary chatter on some tracks is quite disappointing.

Things have changed , you notice Olamide trying to force some rhymes and while it’s still mind-blowing he’s introduced some artistes , the beats were bland and unimpressive.

Hip Hop has changed from the way it used to be. The beats play a major part and the message has to be passed across. Some of these were missing. Yet , it’s still impressive to see Olamide shining through with some heat.

We rate the album 6/10 ★★★★★★☆☆☆
