Ranked: Olamide’s Top Ten Features of All Time

April 12, 2022

Olamide has proven to us that he’s a certified hitmaker and star-maker. He’s been in the music scene for over a decade and has constantly delivered hits of his own and with others. If there’s something we know without a doubt, having Olamide on your song almost automatically makes it a hit. 

We ranked his top ten features in no particular order. 

1. Omo Ope  —  Asake ft Olamide

Asake on his own is a star and no one can dispute that. However, having Olamide on Omo Ope took it to levels Asake couldn’t have achieved on his own. Asake can do bad all by himself, but we’re grateful he let Olamide do Omo Ope with him.

2. Sometimes (remix) — T.I BLAZE ft Olamide

If you put Olamide on your remix, it’s simply because you know the power he possesses. You know he’s going to take your song from an 8/10 to a 20/10 and that’s what he did on Sometimes (remix). We already know that “Sometimes food no dey give man joy but Canadian loud, the feeling is different” and we’re still grateful for Olamide’s extra pizzazz.

3. Vision 2020 remix  — Bella Shmurda ft Olamide

Omo, 2020 didn’t really get the vision sha, but that’s not the point. The passion in Olamide’s part of this song is intense. Olamide is a really good storyteller and he does that so well when on his features. Sometimes thirty seconds or longer. 

4. Zazoo Zehh  —  Portable ft Olamide

Portable needed Olamide on Zazoo the same way we need oxygen to survive. Olamide carried the song more than Twitter Ng is carrying the sanity of Nigerian youths. I often side-eye Olamide for being on that song, but I guess he did what had to be done. 

5. Issa Goal  — Naira Marley ft Lil Kesh and Olamide

This song came out during the 2018 World Cup and worked for morale. Ehyaa to Nigeria this year sha. Everyone and their mums knew this song when it came out because we were all interested in Nigeria’s performance at the World Cup.

6. Hate Me  —  Olamide ft Wande Coal

Olamide had his decision on lock when he selected Black Diamond to be on this song with him. Michael Jackson has been mad quiet since Wande Coal bodied him in Hate Me. Wande Coal really said, “Michael who?” Inject it. 

7. Jagaban (remix)  — Ycee ft Olamide

Putting my personal dislike for the term “jagaban” aside to admit that this song slapped then and still slaps now. By the way, where’s this YCee? We need more of him.

8. Bahd Baddo Baddest  —  Falz ft Olamide and Davido

Asides from the fact that this song is bop, it also has all my faves on it. Bahd Baddo Baddest was a necessary evil back in the day and we still bop it till date.

9. Believe (extended remix)  —  Ric Hassani ft Falz and Olamide

My theory is that Ric Hassani extended the remix of this song to have Olamide on it. Olamide’s feature here once again proved how versatile he is as an artist. 

10. Shoki (remix)  — Lil Kesh ft Olamide and Davido

Everyone in Nigeria could do the Shoki — except me. This song was everywhere and will still make the crowd go crazy if it came on at a party or a concert… even for us girls who don’t know how to shoki.

Bonus Point: Every song Olamide and Phyno have ever done together 

Their bromance makes all their songs sound so good when they make music together and I’m glad they continue to tap into the power they have. Long may they reign.
