Omololu Produced Three of The Biggest Pop Songs In The Nigerian Hip-hop era. Do You Know about It?
One of the biggest regrets about the Nigerian music industry is the fact that so many crucial information about our history is lost in transit. We can’t truly grow as an industry if all we constantly depend on to guide us are activities on the face value. Our deep-rooted achievements are the bedrock for the future we seek for. A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.
From the down of mainstream Hip-hop to the point where the group Remedies took over, Omololu Richard Ogunleye had been behind the scene crafting beats in the studio, producing record breaking singles and albums for numerous artists. He started out with hit tracks like ‘Shakomo’ for the group ‘Remedies’ and also scored great success by producing Tony Tetuila’s breakthrough album, ‘My Car’ – 2001, and ‘Ego better’ album -2003/2004.
Omololu also produced ‘Jupa’ one of the biggest pop singles in Nigeria for the group Krazee Kulture. This cool, calculating producer also registered a hit for himself as a performing artiste when he released ‘Baby Tetewale’ in 2001 and followed it with a beautiful video. At a particular point in time, he was arguably the in-house producer for Kennis Music. He also had a deal with Eko Star to release his album. We can’t talk the history of the Nigerian urban music industry without the mention of these materials and the name Omololu.
