Olamide is bringing the holiday with “Summer Body”

Anticipate an Olamide summer

Words by Ehimenim Agweh

Up until recent years, the theme of summer has not been in the Nigerian mainstream consciousness. It was just called ‘rainy season’ or more formally, ‘Long/3rd term holiday.’ But with the Afropop wave making landfall this June, summer songs are here and Olamide is pushing the sound.

Olamide has come to the point where he needs minimal effort to push a sound to the mainstream. With six studio albums to his name and a record label, the man is riding his own wave of success. To ring in the summer holidays, Olamide has collaborated with Davido to deliver “Summer Body”.

The song which was recorded and shot in Miami, U.S. is set to be released on July 4 with an accompanying video. Prior to the announcement, Olamide had previously shared clips of himself and Davido working together on his Instagram. Art for the track was also released on Tuesday via his Instagram.


‘Summer Body’ can be preordered on iTunes before the 4th of July.
