The Nigerian rapper and label executive has returned with his second project in less than a year, and it’s everything that’s promised.
“UY Scuti” is the ninth studio album from Olamide, and it comes just 7 months after the “Carpe Diem“.
The title of the 10-track project, “UY Scuti,” comes from the name of the largest known star in the universe. He dropped the album in the early hours of Friday, 18 June 2021.
Olamide reveals why he chose the title for the album, “I chose UY Scuti for the title because this project is way bigger than anything I’ve ever done before. From the creativity, the amount of work that went into the project, the process, it’s just a new Olamide inside me.”
“UY Scuti” was mostly done in English including, his song with Phyno, another indigenous rapper.
Producer Eskeez oversaw the entire album. Olamide has described the producer as the only person that connected with him on the kind of sound he’s been trying to achieve. Hence, he decided to record the entire project with him.
