Rappers have always seemed to understand the advantage of marrying the community they come from with their music career. Olamide for most of the part has done this with a long list of tribute songs dedicated to the streets, as well his with his “OLIC” concerts, which have continued to generate massive hype year after year.
The 2017 edition, “OLIC 4” has been announced 17th of December date and a Teslim Balogun venue. His ambitious switch from the Eko Hotel venue for the previous OLIC concerts is coming at the tail of what is arguably Olamide’s most Lagos-themed album, ‘Lagos Nawa’. And because there’s is still no information on tickets at the time this story was written, fans are already speculating OLIC 4 may be a free event. Olamide’s ties with Lagos State government—heard on subtle and not so subtle shoutouts on songs, seen in music videos and felt in joint initiatives—hints that Lagos State could provide all the financial support necessary to make the concert free for fans.
