Baddo, as he is fondly called, had both his primary and secondary school education in Lagos before he gained admission to the not-so-popular Tai Solarin University of Education that’s situated somewhere in Ijebu, Ogun State. He was a Mass Communication student while in school but we have no idea as to whether he completed his tertiary education or not. He had on several occasions during interviews said he was not really interested in having a tertiary education as his love for music
kept him away from classes and he had to drop out of school at some point in order to try his luck with music. Olamide rarely talks about the school now and we are unsure if he returned back to school to earn a degree or not.
As a kid, Olamide had always wanted to be a footballer for reasons he couldn’t really put a finger on, but fate led him into meeting ID Cabasa who signed him to his record label “Coded Tunes” where he got the opportunity to feature in a song written in respect of late legendary Yoruba rapper Olaitan Olaonipekun Dapo aka Dagrin.

verse in the song was catchy as he came in hot, made the atmosphere intense as he flooded his words with emotions.
