Olamide, YBNL boss, has explained the reason behind his decision to start production of his records.
The rapper, in a chat the Grammy, stated that he started production because he couldn’t explain his music choices to everyone.
He said “‘UY Scuti‘ album was my major [foray] into Logic. I started production because sometimes I don’t know how to explain to everyone, apart from a few people, how I’m feeling.
“But most times, I’m not always at home. I’m out on the road and don’t have the luxury of doing the producer’s life.
“So I have to always make sure I record my ideas and tell my guys to teach me one or two things. I’ll make something tiny and skeletal, just put down the idea.”
Speaking further about the production of his 2021 body of work, he continued “My producer (P.Priime) has a church background.
“He’s also a choirmaster and plays almost every instrument, from piano to bass guitar to trumpet—you name it.
“In most cases, I don’t know the right words for all the things in my head. I have good ears for music.
“I didn’t join music school. I didn’t join the choir. I know nothing about that. I’m just a street dude that fell in love with music, so all I do, when I sit down, is try to explain that. This is how I’m feeling. This is what I want to hear.”
