I Didn’t Try To Copy Olamide, It Was Just An Inspiration - Skales

Reacting to speculations that his latest music video, Agolo, was a ‘photocopy’ of Olamide’s Wo, Skales said there was nothing bad if artistes inspire each other.

Better known as Skales, Raoul John Njeng-Njeng told Punch Sunday Scoop that there was nothing wrong in copying Olamide since artistes inspire each other.  

He said: “Because artistes inspire each other, I will never go against anyone who says I copied Olamide. He has always motivated me. I recently told the story of how he paid for my music video. He also told me that I have inspired him in so many ways. But he was not the first person to shoot a street video. Before I even released the video, we had a conversation about it.


“I didn’t try to copy anyone; it was just an inspiration. Next year, I plan to do more music that is relatable to the people on the streets because, at the end of the day, they are the people we do music for.”
