Olamide Adedeji aka Olamide Baddo from Bariga, Lagos State. He is a rapper and hip hop star, he delved into music in 2000 and in 2010, performed at the Hip Hop World Awards.

He stated clearly that releasing albums yearly was no big deal to him as he is ready to keep releasing hits upon hits and keep entertaining his fans.



Phyno’s is reportedly worth $4.6 million.

Olamide’s net-worth is estimated at $6 million as of 2016 which makes Olamide richer than Phyno currently.


Your Verdict

Some say it’s a tie as they both have street credibility, good standing, and the exceptional ability to inject native language in their tracks. While others are of the opinion that Phyno is more exclusive and original, that his rap contents are more interesting than Olamide’s.

Other school of thoughts would without thinking twice go for Olamide Baddo.

Watching Olamide perform live on stage is something special, he has got this aura that surrounds him, he is like a raging inferno, he has the unusual ability to move the crowd and make them ask for more.

Phyno is not as hot on stage but the thing about him is that his presence somewhat electrifies his fans once he mounts the stage and that diminishes his poor dancing skills. So, they are both sophisticated rappers.

The arguments could go on and on..

    Anyway this question is hard oo, because both guys rap in their indigenous languages. Unless one knows both language, only when he is 100% in the right position to compare and contrast. I understand igbo very well because am an igno man. Without being bias I will comment from the point I understand very well which phyno’s.. phyno is excellent in story telling, hence his lyrics is something else, the guy phyno encourages one in his lyrics, and he has the voice that makes a deaf man to hear by force. Olamide in the other hand raps very good, I don’t know about his lyrics, but his voice for me is not too suitable. When it comes in harsh hustling raps, phyno has an edge, but album wise Olamide pass phyno. Also both have good stage presence, but I think because Olamide can really dance, has an edge there. Also on stage phyno commands respect; stage. I feel because of lagos being the center stage and Olamide yoruba, he has more supporters than phyno, Olamide also has more views on youtube and viewers than phyno etc base on these Olamide seems to be ahead of phyno. But am a fan of phyno and still prefer phyno to Olamide.

    We all know that olamide is the nigeria best rapper but doesn’t mean that he can rap more than phyno, phyno is the king of the east and he has different styles of singing, the main post is that phyno and olamide are equal in singing. Checkout their song titled nobody’s fault the 2 of dem are equal
