MUSIC PREMIERE: AKARA OYINBO- OLADIPS
In the current landscape of Yoruba rap, there’s a noticeable shift towards commercialization, with many top artists seemingly prioritizing financial gains over artistic integrity. However, amidst this trend, Ola Dips, also known as Omo Iya Aje, stands out as an authentic and consistent emcee who remains true to the essence of the genre.
From his early works like the T.A.B Mixtape Album, Se’Gobe, 5am-In-OGUN-State, L’BAS to the more recent Free K!ck, Ola Dips has maintained a tight grip on the rap game. His latest release, “AKARA OYINBO” (Pound Cake Cover), is a testament to his prowess. At just 18 years old, this #IBILE Rapper showcases not only a seamless flow and lyrical depth but also a unique ability to inject humor into his verses with witty punchlines and metaphors.
This young talent’s consistency and genuine approach have earned him respect in an industry where commercial motives often overshadow artistic authenticity. As we eagerly await his upcoming track, “IGBOLABI (Kush Song),” scheduled for release this December, it’s clear that Ola Dips continues to be a force to reckon with in the Yoruba rap scene.
