Watch Olamide's New Music Video for 'Oil & Gas'

Olamide asks Nigeria's billionaires to share in their wealth on his latest track.

Olamide is back with the video for his latest single "Oil & Gas."

On the song, the Nigerian rapper asks some of the country's billionaire's to share in their immense wealth, so others can help them spend it—they'll never be able to spend it all by themselves after all. He name drops some of the country's richest men like Tony Elumelu and Femi Otedola on the Pheelz-produced. With its rapid beat, the song is an easy one to hit the zanku to.


The Lagos-shot music video, directed by TG Omori, sees a driver take a briefcase full of money that Olamide leaves in his car and use the money to treat his friends to a shopping spree. The colorful story is interspersed with footage of a group of schoolboys celebrating and enthusiastically dancing to the tack in their classroom.

The song is the artist's latest since the low-tempo "Spirit," which he dropped back in April and before then he dropped the dance banger "Woske." It's clear that we can always rely on Olamide for his consistency.

The 10 Best HHP Songs Ranked

On the second anniversary of HHP's passing, we rank 10 of the South African hip-hop legend's best songs.

He became a household name in the 2000s as he spearheaded the motswako movement, propelling it to the mainstream and solidifying his legendary status in the process.
