YBNL rapper/singer, Olamide has proved over and over again that he is the King of Rap music in Nigeria. There is hardly any rapper in Nigeria who can boast of 5, not to talk of 6 albums to his or her name. Olamide has defied all odds by becoming the most successful rapper and music artiste in Nigeria.
Olamide released his 6th studio album in December 2016 titled “The Glory” with 16 tracks. His second track on the album “Letter to Milli” has been tipped by music pundits to be one of the biggest songs on the album and truly it hasn’t failed to disappoint.
“Letter To Milli” was a song dedicated to his son ‘Milliano‘. Olamide gives advice to his son to motivate him about life and to teach him the ways of the “streets”. Olamide who was raised on the streets and became someone from the streets, uses his life experiences to teach his son so many things that only a father can teach his son.
The beat produced by Pheelz, has a blend of melancholy and Street-hop sound that gives the song a perfect feel of something you will hear from an American rap legend like 2Pac. Olamide has definitely matured in his sound from the usual rap to a more conscious music.
Inasmuch as Olamide wanted to sound different in this song, you can still feel the elements of street rap. Although this is not his usual groovy Afrobeat, you can still nod your head to the beat because it has some pulsating tempo.
Talking about the lyrics of the song, I will give it a 10 over 10 because Olamide made use of a lot of witty words and punchlines that drives home the message he is trying to pass across. The song is a conscious rap music that everyone can listen to and learn a thing or two from it.
I can’t really find any fault in the song because it was done with a lot of caution and appeals to everyone; both young and old. If I am to rate it, I will give it 80/100 which is a pass mark.
