Veteran record producer and music executive, Olumide Ogunade, popularly known as ID Cabasa, has recounted his former signee, Olamide’s exit from his record label, Coded Tunes.

Appearing on the ‘Afrobeats Podcast,’ Cabasa recalled that he shed tears when Olamide was leaving.

He said he tried to persuade Olamide not to leave but gave him his blessings when he insisted on leaving.

He 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.”

Olamide left Coded Tunes in 2012 and launched his record label, YBNL Nation.
