Controversy Erupts as Oladips Claims Superiority over Olamide in Rap Skills

Oladips' claim to rap superiority over Olamide, the esteemed YBNL boss, reverberated through Nigeria's music sphere. Despite acknowledging Olamide's influence, Oladips boldly declared, "I rap pass am," igniting debate and intrigue among fans and industry insiders alike

In a recent interactive session with fans on the X platform, Nigerian rapper Oladipupo Oladimeji, better known as Oladips, ignited a firestorm of controversy by asserting that he is a superior rapper to industry heavyweight Olamide. 



The bold declaration came as a response to a fan inquiry about his idol, to which Oladips responded with admiration for Olamide but confidently claimed to outshine him in the rap game.


The statement sent shockwaves through the Nigerian music scene, as Olamide, also known as the YBNL boss, is widely regarded as one of the most influential and skilled rappers in the country. Oladips acknowledged Olamide’s role as an inspiration but boldly asserted his prowess, stating, “I rap pass am.”


This declaration from Oladips comes amidst a backdrop of recent controversies surrounding the rapper, including rumors of his death and subsequent resurrection. His management had announced his demise in November 2023, only for it to be revealed later that he was indeed alive, sparking speculation and accusations of a staged event. 



Despite the skepticism, Oladips remained adamant in his claims of having experienced death and resurrection, further fueling intrigue around his persona.


While Oladips stirs the pot with his claims of superiority, another rising star in the Nigerian music scene, Bella Shmurda, has expressed profound gratitude towards Olamide for his instrumental role in his career.


Bella Shmurda, whose breakthrough came with the remix of his song “Vision 2020,” featuring Olamide, credits the YBNL Nation boss as a pivotal figure in his journey to success.


In a heartfelt acknowledgment, Bella Shmurda proclaimed Olamide as the first name he would mention when recounting those who aided his rise in the music industry, placing him even before his own mother.


Bella Shmurda’s appreciation for Olamide extends beyond personal gratitude, as he lauds Olamide’s commitment to promoting African music on the global stage. 


He commends Olamide for his international success while remaining dedicated to uplifting African artists and supporting prestigious music awards such as the Headies, contrasting this with other artists who prioritize international accolades over local recognition.


The contrasting sentiments expressed by Oladips and Bella Shmurda shed light on the multifaceted dynamics within the Nigerian music industry


While Oladips boldly asserts his skills and challenges the status quo, Bella Shmurda exemplifies the gratitude and respect bestowed upon mentors and influencers like Olamide, whose contributions transcend individual careers to shape the broader landscape of African music.


As debates rage on social media and among music enthusiasts, the assertions made by Oladips and the gratitude expressed by Bella Shmurda serve as poignant reminders of the intricate tapestry of talent, influence, and ambition that defines Nigeria’s vibrant music scene.
