It is a sad time for the Nigerian music industry as following the death of one of their own, Olamus, real name Winston Ola Badmus. Olamus who until his death was a talent manager, reportedly slumped and died at his residence in Lagos on September 27. Olamus was reportedly the later rapper, Dagrin’s manager until the fatal accident that claimed the rapper’s life in 2010.
Close friends of the deceased have taken to social media to mourn his tragic passing. Talent manager, prof_fiammari, wrote on Instagram:
“Olawale Winston Badmus (Olamus) I am utterly shattered but God really knows best. Rest well my “Elderly Brother”. You impacted so many people in this our industry and all we can say at this point is Thank you and we continue to march on. This one is really going to hurt the streets because this guy right here was responsible for some of the biggest industry names. What a way to go out, still on the job! Love you forever bro. Till we meet to depart no more.”
