Olamide explained in a podcast with a UK music writer that he chose to sign new musicians after receiving too much money and not knowing what to do with it.
He goes on to say that his own small contribution to society is assisting aspiring artists in realizing their goals.
‘I just started stacking up money and the money was becoming too much for me. I was like, “yo, I don’t have anything to do with this money. I need to sign new guys. Let me spend money on people”’, he said.
