It has become increasingly inevitable that every year promises a different Olamide. Though you might expect his knack for constantly reinventing himself to have an adverse effect on his fan base, he has proven time and time again that he can always make hit songs that aren’t derivative. Coming off the euphoria of the “Wo” sound that brought us the now viral ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance, Olamide has gradually moved on to a less erratic beat, favoring the mellow vibe that high-life and Caribbean-fused-Afropop offers.
His latest single, “Logba Logba” is his 6th release for this year and Killertunes produces a shoulder-shrug paced instrumental with layers of percussion, sweeping synths, rattling samples and a bouncy drum sample. The mid-tempo mix provides the background music for Olamide’s melodic rendition, filled with Yoruba idiom-esque lyrics. “Logba Logba” serves as a reminder of Olamide’s ethos to live the moments to the fullest, without any worry for the future. It’s a marker for his confidence in his popularity and talent. And the video Unlimited LA directs, captures these sentiments in a series of shots showing Olamide in comfortable clothes at a wild party, then Olamide in a suit, partying with classy models.
