Olamide Adedeji, better known as Olamide, is a singer and rapper who has stated that his long-awaited next album may be his last.
On Saturday evening, the singer/rapper tweeted, “My second album, Unruly, is 95% ready.” But I’m not sure when it’ll be released because I’m taking my time to make it the greatest it’s ever been. It’d most likely be my final album, though I’d release singles every now and then if I felt like it. It’s been a fantastic run, as I’ve been releasing albums one after the other.”
