ID Cabasa, a veteran record producer and music executive, also known as Olumide Ogunade, recently opened up about the emotional turmoil he experienced when his former protégé, Olamide, decided to leave his record label, Coded Tunes.

In a recent episode of the ‘Afrobeats Podcast,’ Cabasa fondly recalled the moment when tears filled his eyes as Olamide said his goodbyes.

He shared that he genuinely tried to persuade Olamide to stay, but ultimately respected his unwavering choice to move on.

His words;

“Olamide was 13 years old when I met him. He came to my studio with a friend who wanted to feature him on a song. His friend was not good musically. Olamide was quiet and unassuming. I gave him a beat, and he did 16 bars that changed everything. Olamide became more like a son to me.

“When he was about to leave my record label, we sat down to discuss it. It was painful to me. It wasn’t the pain of not wanting him to progress; it was the pain of seeing someone you love leave. I cried.

“I said, ‘Olamide, you should’ve waited o!’ He said, ‘Bros, I want to do something, and I’m sure, by your code, we might not be able to do some of them.’ We didn’t have a fight. I gave him my full blessings.”
