OLIC Is Evidence Olamide Is Still King Of The Streets
Olamide Live in Concert (OLIC) was part of Rythm Unplug’s three-day event. The star who manages to attract, enthrall and captivate the crowd during his performances continued in like fashion this year.
The concert started late as usual which apparently has become the tradition, maybe a characteristic of a successful concert.
Olamide came with the energy, he performed, he danced, he mesmerised the crowd and like victims under hypnosis, some fans couldn’t help but jump on the stage, hugging and clinging to their “master” with almost futile attempts by the bouncers to shoo them off.
The crowd really loved him.
Some parents couldn’t make the sacrifice and keep away but carried their underage children to a place where they had no business being there as at the concert there were people smoking at various spots.
There were guest performances from likes of Adekunle Gold, Darey Art Alade, Timaya, Praiz to the utter delight of the already pumped up crowd.
Wizkid surprised everyone when he showed up to perform thereby squashing any rumour of a beef between him and Olamide for holding a concert on the same day.
Considering all the rants and plots on Twitter to boycott OLIC this year, all have been quickly forgiven as he performed his major hits but shied away from the recently released controversial “Logo Benz” which Lil Kesh featured him.
In the excitement, he threw some of his personal belongings like shoes to the audience to the scrambling of the crowd who clawed to ensure they were the lucky recipient of the “sacred” item.
Olamide reclaimed his throne as the king of the streets at a point in the show by sitting on a throne.
