A few months was all it took for Lil Kesh and Adekunle Gold to become bonafide stars courtesy of Olamide and his YBNL movement.

On April 22, 2014 just a few days after Olamide announced the signing of Lil Kesh and Viktoh, his song ‘Shoki’ was released and it became an instant hit!.

Before crossing paths with Olamide, Lil Kesh was a struggling rapper on the streets of Bariga with talent, ambition, hope and nothing more. Fast forward to November of the same year, he was sharing the stage with Olamide and Davido performing at the Channel O Music Video awards in South Africa.By 2016, Lil Kesh had dropped an album and he’s now a boss on his own as he started his own record label or rather movement called Y.A.G.I Records..
In the case of Adekunle Gold, before he was unveiled among YBNL 2.0 acts alongside Chinko Ekun and Xino in 2015, he was a popular graphic artist fondly called ‘King of Photoshop’It didn’t however take long for his unique style of music to win hearts in the industry and his fans welcomed him like a long lost son.
Now lets imagine a different scenario!
Remember Adekunle Gold wasn’t just a graphic designer before his YBNL days, he was in a music group called The Bridge with his best friend, Seyikeyz but they were no "HIT". While Lil Kesh had been a struggling rapper on the streets of Bariga almost all his life.Will Lil Kesh and Adekunle Gold have made this same kind of impact had their paths not crossed with Olamide?
While Don Jazzy’s efforts in the lives and careers of Reekado Banks, Korede Bello and Di’ja’s careers speaks for itself, Olamide’s influence in the careers of Lil Kesh and Adekunle Gold is equally as remarkable.
Their success story will NEVER be complete without the influence and imput of the YBNL Boss, Olamide!
After the scene they created at the Headies last year,who is your own "KING MAKER?"
