Skepta Has Been Made a Chief In His Hometown In Nigeria

The grime star is now a chief in Ogun State.

Skepta can now add "Chief" to his long list of titles and accolades.

The grime heavyweight is currently in his home country of Nigeria, where he performed at the massive "Homecoming" showcase, which also featured the likes of Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, J Hus and Davido to name a few.

That was far from the only major event that took place while he was there, however. His trip proved a true homecoming as the rapper was also made a chief in his father's home state, Ogun.

"Thank you to the Baale, Chiefs of Odo Aje and King for presenting me with my Chieftaincy title today. I am honoured and will continue to put time and love into Nigeria, especially the community of Odo Aje," wrote the artist in an Instagram post, which showed him, his parents, friends and a group of guards marching through the streets in celebration.

Listen to Olamide & Skepta's New Single 'Sheevita Juice'

The Nigerian hitmaker links up with UK grime star Skepta for another street anthem.

Olamide's really been on a roll lately with the drop of his street anthem "Wo!!," which lit up the airwaves and sparked a dance craze last year, and his more recent single "Science Student," which we called the first banger of 2018.

The YBNL chief is now here with "Sheevita Juice," a booming collaboration with UK grime star Skepta.

The new track's addictive, stuttering beat was produced BBanks, who crafted "Science Student" alongside Young John.
