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..
