PHYNO vs OLAMIDE: Who is Richer and the Better Rapper

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. Olamide is a gradu­ate of Mass Communication from Tai Solarin University of Education and he dropped his debut album entitled, Rapsodi, in 2011, with the lead single, Eni Duro.

Today, he is popularly acclaimed as one of Nigeria’s best rappers, he has collaborated with powerful forces in the Nigerian music scene, talking about the likes of D’banj, Phyno, Don Jazzy, Davido, MI ,9ice and Wizkid to mention a few. In 2012, he dropped his follow up album, YBNL, which featured multiple guest appearances from Tiwa Savage, Da­vido, Reminisce and Dammy Krane. In 2013, it was double joy for Olamide when he inked a mouth-watering deal with Guinness Nigeria Plc. He was equally appointed a brand ambassador for telecom giant, Etisalat.

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..
