Olamide Drops the Music Video for His Latest Single 'Pawon'

The Nigerian artist shares a lively video for the dance-worthy track.

Olamide has been one of this year's most consistent artists, and he doesn't appear to be slowing down. Today, the Nigerian rapper shares his latest song "Pawon," his fourth single of the year.

The track sees the artist hyping up a love interest, and encouraging all the "sexy" ladies to continue to "kill them" with their style. The track, produced by Craker Mallo is a definite party starter. With its pulsating beat and catchy chorus, we can already see folks running to the dance floor to hit the zanku when this comes on.

This is the rapper's latest single since "Oil & Gas," before then the artist released the low-tempo groove "Spirit."

Most recently he featured on Fuse ODG's collaborative cypher track "Cool Down," alongside fellow rappers Joey B and Kwamz & Flava.

Update 9/24: Olamide shares the music video for "Pawon," directed by TG Omori. Check it out below.
