For a record label that people used to classify as ‘local’, YBNL has indeed thrived overtime, taking its ‘local’ artists to an international level. It is more fascinating that the head of this record label, Olamide, finds young talented artistes, gives them a platform to showcase their potentials and helps them to grow in the music industry.
Olamide’s influence in the music industry is as enormous as you can imagine, the proofs are there, grooming young men into stars and helping them make their dreams come true.
The YBNL boss has been on top trend lists in the past few days, getting various appreciative posts from fans and the people whose lives he has impacted, personally.
The growth of the label might as well be accorded to the hard-working artistes signed to the record label; as they’re quite up to the task (they are learning from the best).t t
Take Asake for instance; most recently, on his twitter page, he wrote “One call from Olamide and everything changed”. The young and fast-rising artiste had earlier released his latest single, Terminator, a very much anticipated song since the snippet he dropped on his Instagram page. The tweet by Asake was probably a reflection on how far he has come in his music career in the space of six-seven months after his first EP. Asake’s growth can be likened to that of a man that has been waiting for an opportunity to unleash his potentials all his life and finally have the opportunity at his fingertips – he came prepared and he is for sure not ready to fall out.

It is indisputable that Olamide is not just a great artiste and musician, he is also a great A&R and talent manager.
