Olamide’s Albums Ranked By How Well They Catered to the Baddies

Olamide announced on Threads that his latest album Unruly is only for baddies and men who love baddies, not for those looking for moral lessons. It’s out now, so we decided to rank all his albums according to their attention to baddies.


Wrapped in hustle mode, his debut album had few women-centered tracks. Although Dirty Rock and Omo To Shan used to get the baddies throwing it  down, Rapsodi still gets last position on this particular ranking. It’s not hard to see that Olamide also had long talking stages that make you feel like a journalist doing an interview.

Baddest Guy Ever Liveth

Still deeply in love with the streets, Baddo painted tales of hustle and triumph. The popular hit, Durosoke, is the closest to “baddie”s music on the album. He had babes from top Nigerian universities on roll call, further solidifying especially “Babcock girls” (means the hottest babes) in the Nigerian pop culture.

Eyan Mayweather

This album is loaded with viral hits like Say Something, Lagos Boys, Melo Melo and Bobo. We broke our backs to Don’t Stop, but it failed to deliver for the bad bitches.

The album was fully for the streets, and there’s no single woman in the crowd on the album art.

The Glory

His sixth album spread a messages of motivation with dashes of braggado, except Pepper Dem, which became the hottest slang for “slaying” at the time .

Lagos Nawa!

Also known as “Wobey Sound”, this album attempted to give the girls a dancehall tune with Bend It Over (featuring Timaya and Reminsice), but it just didn’t hit. Fine Fine Girls with Tiwa Savage tried to come for the waist beads too, but it wasn’t giving. The titular track, Lagos Nawa!, was the only track that made the baddies active for a while.

YBNL (Yahoo Boy No Laptop)

Baddo was still neck deep in the hustle, fully representing the streets on this album. But he still managed to deliver solid jams like Ewo Idi, Stupid Love and grabbed Dammy Krane for the fuji and EDM-infused Fuji House that made the girlies take off their heels.

Street OT

Olamide’s fourth studio album announced its business early. While it’s not his most enjoyable body of work, the highlight is his rawness on tracks like Up in the Club, Skelemba, Falila Ketan and Story for the Gods. “Monkey Tail” was in full effect that year.

Carpe Diem

Even on the album art, Baddo is pictured amongst four beautiful women all glammed up. The tracks covered themes of triumph, good life and spending money, but Green Light, Eru and Shilalo are about the fine women in his life. 

UY Scuti

UY Scuti came out in 2021 and followed the direction of Carpe Diem, leaning heavily towards sensual lyricism. From start to finish, UY Scuti gave sugar daddy vibes, telling babes to run away from broke niggas on Rock. On Pon Pon, he went rogue and said he wants to do his babe like Big Sean does Jhené Aiko.


He opened his latest album with Celebrate, reminiscing on his journey from Shaku Shaku to the top as a successful music executive and label owner. UNRULY is a fusion of afrobeats and log drums backing up his playful, raunchy lyrics and street yarns. With guest features from the new ladies’ men of afrobeats: CKay, Rema, Asake, Fireboy DML, etc., UNRULY makes Olamide’s most playable album in the strip club. The music is mature, lush, flirty and easy on the ears — all the elements that get the baddies’ attention.
