There is more to me than music —Playboycasted

April 19, 2020

Nigerian singer, songwriter and music enthusiast, Ogundayomi Olawale, famously known as Playboycasted, does not only make music for fame or money but to keep the world a better and safer place for everybody.

For somebody whose music career started at the age of 9 as a church chorister, Playboycasted knew what he wanted to make out of life and has remained truthful to himself and craft over the years.

With music being his calling in life, the singer who is famed for releasing wave-making songs and being the brains behind popular songs from top Nigerian music stars, there seems to be more than music to the young man which many people have not felt.

Speaking in an interview R during the week, Playboycasted who loves to rap recalled how he released his first rap single: Shemi among other freestyles as back as 2013.

He would later bag four awards as a rapper at the SLIC Campus recognition awards, held yearly at the Gateway ICT Polytechnic, where he obtained Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in Mass Communication.

He showed the world a glimpse of what to expect when in 2017, he released series of singles including his official single Mapamilekun, a song widely regarded as one in a lifetime inspirational hit. This was followed by a street anthem, Rollercoaster and another collaboration with former YBNL star Lyta, in the song entitled Success.

With a newly released EP, Top Boy, the singer hinted that there was more to come from him as he continues to push his music career to a new level and showing many music lovers how what they may have been missing.

Laced with Afro-fusion sounds that appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of African ladies across the continent, the EP has songs like No Yawa, Person, Oremi Ti, Governor, Be There, Shayo, Holla and Enough as the singer attempted to create something unique in his own way.

“I want to give something magical to every music lover and I also want to remind my audience that there is life beyond the current situation they may be grappling with. This is a piece of music and body of work for everybody.”

According to him, new videos, collaborations and new songs have been lined up as he wants to keep building on the success he has recorded with his latest project.
