Nigerian Music Producer Olumide Ogunade, fondly called ID Cabasa, in an interview he had with Olaitan Ganiu he spoke about how he started his record label Coded Tunes and how he discovered indigenous rapper Olamide.
Read the excerpts below;
Professionally, when did you start your career?
I started as a teenager way back in the late 80s. I was in the secondary school while also doing music by the side. But, professionally, it was around 2003 after I left the university. I worked in a corporate company for a while before I left to fully focus on music production.
Is that when you started Coded Tunes Record?
I started Coded Tunes production in my house in 2003. But before Coded Tunes, we had a clique called, The Smiling Head Soldier which was headed by 2phat. It comprises me, 2phat, Lord of Ajasa and MC Spako. And then, we used to have a lot of squads coming to make beat in my studio.
There was this massive squad called, Yabtown Squad which is where Reminisce originated from. It is a clique of both rappers and singers and some of them were my juniors in secondary school.
From there, we decided to gather momentum and create something larger than just being Smiling Head Soldier or Yabtown Squad. And obviously, the name of the studio that unites us is Coded Tunes. So, that was how we started Coded Tunes.
You’ve been a blessing to many big stars of today. Do you receive accolades for this?
I will say I’m one of the few lucky ones that got the accolade that I deserve. In fact, I get more accolades than I think I deserve because all of those I’ve worked with till date are still much loyal to our friendship and some of them still mention my name in their interviews. Last year, 9ice titled his album after me. Olamide still doesn’t believe we are in a way apart.
He doesn’t see me as ID Cabasa who just produces beats for him but rather sees me as his father and always consults me at any of his projects. We still play and do things together. The same goes for Reminisce, Seriki and every other guy, even the ones that are not part of Coded Tunes family which I’ve worked with. They still appreciate me; the likes of Banky W, Ruggedman, Durella, and co.
How did you discover Olamide?
Olamide came with a friend to record in my studio; a friend was featuring him. I fell in love with the young boy of 13 or 14 as he delivered his rap line. I could hear a depth that you won’t get from most of his age mates.
I was so impressed that I told him that he’s free to come to my studio at any time. He will come to the studio, then I will make beat while is writing his lyrics. From there, the interest to have him as part of Coded Tunes developed and the rest is history. By the time Coded Tunes transited to a proper recording label, Olamide was the first person signed alongside Seriki and Kayefi.
Bodies of missing pregnant wife and her two daughters found as her husband appears in court after confessing to killing them
The bodies of a missing pregnant wife and her two ddaughters have been found hours after her husband, who initially went on TV to plead for their return, confessed to killing them.
Christopher Watts, 33, initially denied knowledge of the whereabouts of his family and went on national TV to beg for them to return home. But late on Wednesday, he was taken into custody after he confessed to killing his wife, Shanann Watts, 34, and their two daughters, Bella , 4, and Celeste, 3.
The body of Shanann was found earlier Thursday at the Anadarko oil and gas site where her husband Christopher worked near their home in Frederick, on the northern outskirts of Denver. The bodies of the couple’s two daughters were found later in the afternoon at the same site.
Christopher Watts, 33, appeared in court on Thursday. He was led into the court room in Weld County, Colorado, in an orange jumpsuit and shackles. He was denied bail during the meeting appearance.
Though formal charges have not yet been filed, he could face three charges of murder and three charges of tampering with evidence.
Prosecutors say they believe the mother and children were killed in their home and the bodies later moved, but no cause of death has been made public in the case.
