As Olamide celebrates his 29th birthday with a new single titled C Ronaldo to treat fans, the YBNL young boss also revealed a personal birthday gift through his Instagram timeline that he has a new TV station called VOTS TV on Play TV (a new cable platform). But for an actively performing act and remarkable record label owner like Olamide, who has replicated success in Lil Kesh, Adekunle Gold and others, do you think the time is right for another huge business venture as demanding as running a TV channel?
You will recall that four weeks back, Olamide announced the signing of his two new acts Lyta and Limerik. Several reactions came for the new acts especially with concerns on how they will fare in the label. With what seems like an effort to use the new artistes to make for the failures in Viktoh and Chinko Ekun, don’t you think Olamide should focus on his music business instead of entertaining the distraction of running a TV station?
Few weeks back, EME boss, Bank W announced the closure of the music arm of his business to venture into full time marketing communication, due to the unannounced obvious inability to replicate the success recorded with Wizkid and Skales in the Shaydee & Niyola. As Olamide delves into the time consuming TV stations business, do you think he might be nursing thoughts of quitting his YBNL business?
Taking a closure look into the TV station itself, Olamide named it after one of his hit tracks Voice Of The Street. In his words, the station will possibly reveal to us what we don’t see on the everyday street. Of recent you will agree that Olamide received some backlash and condemnation on the so called wrong interpretation of Science Student; now starting off a TV station of his own, will this help change the wrong perception of illicit content that he is somewhat known for?
