Olamide Drops Non-Stop Bars on New Track 'Bugle'

The rapper reminds us why he's one of the biggest MCs to come out of the Nigerian music scene.

Olamide delivers unfiltered bars on his latest single "Bugle."

The Nigerian rapper who released the colorful music video for his single "Motigbana" in August, is back with a gritty rap song that reminds us why he's one of the most celebrated MCs to come out of the Nigerian music scene.

He shows off his rapid wordplay as he raps in his signature Yoruba and English flow over production by PheezOnTheBeatz. Unlike his previous releases, the focus of "Bugle" is purely Olamide's rap capabilities—the rapper drops line after line atop the track's mid-tempo beat.


Olamide has had a fruitful year, releasing the hit song "Science Student" earlier this year, followed by equally popular gems"Issa Goal" and "Kana" featuring Wizkid and the lesser known, "Sheevita Juice" with Skepta.

In an interview with OkayAfrica last month, Wale named Olamide as one of the musicians he "looks up to."

Listen to "Bugle." below.
