I cried after Olamide left my record label - ID Cabasa

Legendary and renowned music producer, and executive of Coded Tunez, Olumide Ogunade popularly  known as ID Cabasa has recounted how Olamide leaving his record label brought tears to his eyes.

ID Cabasa in an interview with Adesope Olajide for the Afrobeats Podcast, he described the events leading up to Olamide’s departure from his label.

He noted that he first saw the YBNL boss when he was just 13 years old, having visited his studio to record a song with a friend of his.

He stated that although his friend wasn’t very good, “everything changed” when Olamide took the mike and unleashed 16 bars.

ID Cabasa described how he gave the “Eni Duro” crooner his blessings when he insisted on leaving, despite his best efforts to convince him to stay.

It would be recalled that in 2012, Olamide left Coded Tunes and started his own record label, YBNL Nation. Notable artists including Adekunle Gold and Lil Kesh were signed to the label, and its current roster includes Asake and Fireboy DML.

ID Cabasa said;

“Olamide was 13 years old when I met him. He came to my studio with a friend who wanted to feature him on a song. His friend was not good musically. Olamide was quiet and unassuming. I gave him a beat, and he did 16 bars that changed everything. Olamide became more like a son to me.

“When he was about to leave my record label, we sat down to discuss it. It was painful to me. It wasn’t the pain of not wanting him to progress; it was the pain of seeing someone you love leave. I cried.

“I said, ‘Olamide, you should’ve waited o!’ He said, ‘Bros, I want to do something, and I’m sure, by your code, we might not be able to do some of them.’ We didn’t have a fight. I gave him my full blessings.”
