Happy birthday Baddo!
Nigerian rapper, Olamide, turns 29 years old today! Over the years, the artiste who is popularly addressed as Badoo has chunned out hits upon hits.
In honour of Olamide’s new age, here are ten of his music videos that we can watch over and over again.
10. Science Student
Olamide channelled Michael Jackson for the clip of one of the biggest songs in Nigeria right now. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, ‘Science Student‘ will have your hands and legs itching to do the popular Shaku Shaku street dance.
Many of us hadn’t seen or heard of Shaku Shaku up until we saw Olamide’s music video for the hit song ‘Wo’. Wo’s street video format has been repeated time and time again after Olamide released it, making it a trend setting clip.
8. Pepper Dem Gang
Olamide gave slay mamas all over the country an anthem with the release of ‘Pepper Dem Gang’. The perfect song for Snapchat lip synching and Boomerang clips got the perfect video to boot.

7. Lagos Boys
The year was 2015 and Olamide was on an incredulous roll. Lagos Boys’ clip was filled with all the glamour and swag that anyone would expect from a song called Lagos Boys. The M Say C production is complete with helicopters, boats and a nightlife party. Too much swag or nah?
6. Melo Melo
A welcomed change for the turn up king, ‘Melo Melo‘, saw Olamide showcase not only his singing skills but also his loverboy side. The lovey dovey clip features a mini orchestra, ballet dancers and a reflective Olamide.
Arguably Olamide’s most iconic music video, ‘Bobo’ certified Olamide as a consistent hit maker. The simple clip for the video was shot at Oriental Hotel, Lagos and it featured Olamide teaching us the latest dance of the time.
Olamide’s video for Durosoke was directed by Clarence Peters and it was released on Star Music. The playful music video showcased Olamide’s fun personality as well as Clarence Peter’s brilliant talent as a director.
