Akon Expresses Regret Missing Out on Signing Olamide [Video]


Akon has openly expressed his regret for not signing Nigerian indigenous rapper Olamide Adedeji, popularly known as Olamide or Baddo, several years ago.

During a Skype interview with OAP Oladotun Ojuolape Kayode, also known as Do2Tun, of Cool FM Lagos, Akon revealed that Olamide was his favorite artist at that time.

In a candid moment, Akon admitted that he looks back with regret at the missed opportunity of working with Olamide, recognizing the rapper’s undeniable talent and potential

“I would probably say the one person in Nigeria that I wish I had signed is Olamide. Honestly, I wish I had signed Olamide because he would have signed a lot of new artists anyway.

“Olamide was my favourite artist before he reinvented himself as a music executive. The first time we met, I told him he was my favourite artist,” Akon stated.
