He is always a reference on issues relating to Nigerians, Africans and foreigners in Russia. Hence he is a sought after commentator, research participant and speaker on the life and living of Africans in Russia.

From 2001 to 2008, Dr Obasekola was the President-General of the Nigerian Community Russia. His experience as former students’ leader was handy when he was chosen as the leader of the Nigerian Community to bridge the differences between all the various strata of Nigerians residing in Russia, he worked with dedication and passion to nurture the organization to a level of acceptance by many Nigerians and recognition by the local institutions and authorities.

He records mostly in Yoruba, his native tongue. In 2011, he released his debut studio album Rapsodi while signed to Coded Tunes. Four solo albums have been released by him since that time, under his self-owned YBNL record Label, and another collaborative album alongside Phyno, who also raps predominantly in his mother-tongue, Igbo.

The list of awards he has received in acknowlegement of his immense talent and hardwork include multiple Nigeria Entertainment Awards, TooXclusive AwardsChannel O Music Awards and The Headies Awards.

Born in Bariga, Lagos state, Olamide began actively pursuing music in the year 2000 when he was only 14. According to him; “I found out I was gifted in it so I had to explore it, it’s my life, my hustle, my world”. He studied at the Tai Solarin College of Education and upon graduation concentrated solely on making music.

Signed on to ID Cabasa’s Coded Tunes record label, and managed by ex-wife of artiste, 9ice, Olamide released his first album in 2011, with the hit single Eniduro drawing massive attention to the rapper’s flow, synonymous to DaGrin’s, majorly for the language in which it was presented, Yoruba.

At the turn of the year 2016, Olamide famously had an exchange with Boss of The Supreme Mavin DynastyDonJazzy, on the stage of the Headies awards which went viral and split the fanbase of both artistes. The both of them later had the beef settled for them by Aliko Dangote after the artiste had gone on a long, unbridled rant on twitter

Baddo Sneh as he calls himself, has never been married but has two children with his long-time girlfrield Adebukunmi Suleiman to whom he might never get married, according to the rapper in August, 2015.
