Inability to afford meals made me hustle hard – Olamide

Top Nigerian rapper, Olamide Adedeji professionally known as Olamide, has narrated his experiences while living in the ghetto before becoming a music superstar.

He said growing up in a slum in the Bariga axis of Lagos State motivated him to hustle hard.

The ”Wo” crooner made this known while speaking with The Guardian UK, adding that although surviving was hard in the ghetto, he hustled hard to become successful just to experience life in a different culture.

“Surviving was hard. Bariga was not far from the other slums you see across the world, from Mumbai to New York and London – life in the ghetto is almost always the same everywhere.

“There were days when not being able to afford three square meals was a big deal for my family. All of that motivated me to hustle hard.

” I also wanted to see the whole world and experience different cultures from what I grew up seeing,” Olamide said.
