Why I rejected Olamide’s request to join music label – Rapper Phenom surprises Nigerians

Nigerian rapper, Phenom has surprised netizens after sharing his reason for not accepting Olamide’s record label offer.

In a recent episode of the Terms and Conditions podcast, rapper Phenom shared the intriguing revelation.

According to Phenom, Olamide and some other top singers had expressed their desire to work with him.

He also disclosed that during the peak of his career, Wizkid himself had approached him with an offer to join his prestigious record label, Starboy Entertainment.

The rapper added that he had lucrative deals on the table, including a jaw-dropping 100 million Naira offer and a brand new G-wagon.

However, his unwavering loyalty to Knight House, his then-label, ultimately influenced his decision.

He said; “He (Wizkid) approached me at some point. We had this great chemistry. He said he wanted me on his team. He said he wanted him and me to work on my album. But I was with a label. I’m that loyal. And I remember I ask my mum that’s what’s on ground and my mum was like, ‘No. You signed with these people, finish your contract with them.’ That was what it was, mehn.

“Even Wizkid’s deal was not as pleasant as many other that I don’t know. Me and Olamide had a conversation as well. But a lot of other guys approached me too. I had a deal of N100 million with a G-waggon at some point. I had the crazy deals.

“The only regret I do have was the fact that I was under fast life at that time so I could have crashed. So, I see it as a blessing as well because I don’t know what would have happened. But when I look at it, I’m like, ‘Damn! I should have taken that Wizkid’s deal.”
