Headies 2016 Best Street Pop Winner,
Olamide , aka Baddo , has given an explanation of what his trending song
Pepper Dem Gang means. The YBNL boss, who was speaking with entertainment channel, HipTV, said
Pepper Dem Gang describes a state of success that goes beyond people’s expectations, the kind of success that makes people want to envy you. Hear him:
The celebrated Lagos state first son of music also gave a hint into what he would have been doing if not music. In his words: “If not music, I’ll be out there on the streets, hustling. You know…based on one or two kporlorkporlor”. What’s that? In the street hustling what? Thank God for music you will say, because there’s no job called street hustling that can put Olamide on the level he is now.
When it comes to creating street trends and slangs, Olamide is arguably the King of the moment. Even Falz will acknowledge this. But explaining the slangs will always be a difficult task as you can see from the video. The dude is saying something, but at the end you’ll still be left wondering “what is he saying?!”
