How one call from Olamide changed my life – Skales recounts

Nigerian musician, Skales has shared how his senior colleague, Olamide rescued him financially after he left Empire Mates Entertainment (EME).


Skales revealed in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo that he became homeless and broke after EME refused to renew his contract due to the label’s inability to make profits from him.

He said Olamide called him and asked if he wasn’t going to shoot a video for his song ‘Shake Body.’


Skales however, replied that he was broke and homeless. Olamide sent him money for the video shoot, after which the song became a success.

He said: “My deal with them was done and they refused to continue because I wasn’t doing well at that time.

“Olamide contacted me and said he loved one of my songs, Shake Body, and asked if I wasn’t going to shoot the video. I told him I was homeless and couldn’t possibly shoot a video and he sent me money. My God turned my life around after that video shoot”
