Nigerian rapper, Olamide has revealed how the Covid-19 Pandemic affected his last year when it forced a shutdown of the entire world.
Olamide told Hot 97 in a recent interview that the pandemic showed him that he could survive without performing at shows last year. The interview was held on Hot 97's Kulture Movement Monday held on Monday, the 2nd of August 2021.
When Shani Kulture asked Olamide how the pandemic affected him last year, he said the lockdown was an eye-opener for him. He explained that he used to believe couldn't survive without shows. In his words;
Covid was like an eye-opener for me, because I used to think I couldn't survive without doing shows. I used to think like that but it's not like that for me anymore. I just wanna enjoy every moment, take it one step at a time. Because right now, I actually know loads of people that died from the Covid madness and I'm just grateful for every second I have now.
Olamide famously dropped his Carpe Diem album in the middle of the pandemic lockdown last year. The album went on to give us smash hits like Infinity with Omah Lay, and Triumphant with Bella Shmurda.
