12. The money (rap): Yes, I know this is not Olamide's song but one can not ignore the amazing rap in this song. I think it's the rap that made the song such a huge success. Rapping in English throughout then completing it with Yoruba. Baddo na baba.

11. Durosoke: I know you've been waiting to see the review of this song. It was unarguably the song of the year when it was released. Nice jam, flawless lyrics, beautiful wordplay. What else can't baddo do concerning his field? The best part of the song is "won fowo pa lara o fun meaww. Se olongbo ni e, o de wan wo mi loju baun". Meaning: They are rubbing her body and she sounding meaw. Are you a cat, why are you looking like at my fave like this.

10. Pepper dem gang: Surely, I might get stoned for adding this song but the simile and poetic power of Olamide was unleashed in this song. He frequently compared one object or person to another. This is one hard thing to do especially when you need them to rhyme.

8. Bobo: Oya shakiti bobo. Mo fe ra Bentley bobo. Mo fe ra Ferrari bobo. Fly to parisi bobo. Olamide made his mark when he released this song and also the crazy dance step. The dance step got producers, comedians, actors and his fellow artistes dancing.

7. Melo meloo: A love Ballard from Olamide? Who ever expected this from Olamide? It's very surprising! Olamide killed us with this slow Ballard. The violin was lit too.

All lyrics blended perfectly.

5. First of all: This funny song is an amazing piece from the rapper. This was the song that took him where he is today. The video was lit and the stars in the video also played their parts well. The beat is off the hook. One of the turning point of this song is the fact that whenever someone starts a speech with "first of all" everyone echoes "go down low".

4. Young Erikina: Speaking of exceptional songs,Young Erikina is just the perfect description. The song that got Olamide the name " Yahoo Boy No Laptop". This song was the foundation of YBNL. The lines were just out of this world. He kept spitting and spitting until there was none to spit again. This song showed everyone that Olamide is here to stay.
