“Living in the Ghetto made me hustle hard”- Olamide »
Nigerian indigenous rapper, Olamide has shared a detailed account of his upbringing.
Olamide revealed in a recent interview with The Guardian UK that growing up in a slum in Lagos State’s Bariga axis inspired him to work hard.
Sharing more light on what life in the ghetto feels like, he described the ghetto life as essentially the same all across the world.
In his words;
“Surviving was hard. Bariga was not far from the other slums you see across the world, from Mumbai to New York and London – life in the ghetto is almost always the same everywhere.
There were days when being able to afford three square meals was a big deal for my family. All of that motivated me to hustle hard – I wanted to see the whole world and experience different cultures from what I grew up seeing.”
Earlier today, Olamide came through with ‘UY Scuti’, his 11th studio album that houses 11-tracks, with features from his colleague, Phyno.
