How Olamide Helped Me When I Had No Home After Leaving E.M.E - Skales

By Agboola Ibrahim

Nigerian rapper, Skales, recently opened up about his life in an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo. Skales recounted how he became homeless and broke after leaving his record label, E.ME, which was headed by Banky W. He revealed that his contract with the label had ended, but they refused to continue because he wasn't doing well for the label. Skales stated that a call from Olamide changed his life.

Olamide had reached out to him to inquire when he was releasing the video for his hit song, Shake Body, which Olamide loved. Skales explained his situation to Olamide, and he sent him money for the video. The music video became a hit and marked the beginning of a turnaround for Skales.

Skales also spoke about his marriage and how he took accountability for bringing his marital issues online. He stated that he and his wife had a misunderstanding, and someone was fueling the fire between them.

However, Skales wants to build a new family and hopes to have a big family as he never experienced what a real family is like while growing up. He also touched on his father, claiming he doesn't know his father as he doesn't know what he looks like. Skales tried asking his mum before her demise, but he couldn't because he didn't want to upset her.

Skales' story is a testament to the power of kindness and the impact it can have on someone's life. Olamide's gesture not only helped Skales shoot the video for his hit song but also marked the beginning of a new chapter in his life.

It's also a reminder that even the smallest acts of kindness can make a big difference in someone's life. Skales' openness about his personal struggles is also commendable as it helps to shed light on issues that affect many people but are often kept hidden.
