Bella Shmurda, the sensational singer, has stated that YBNL leader Olamide paid for the recording and video shoot of his breakout single ‘Vision 2020’.
In a recent interview with Pulse, the ‘Cash App’ crooner revealed the early roles Olamide, Poco Lee, and Zlatan Ibile played in his career.
Poco Lee, who was living with Zlatan on the island, he added, urged the rapper to accommodate him, which he did.
Shmurda said during his stint with Zlatan, the rapper encouraged him and also collaborated with him on several unreleased songs.
He said, “Shouout to Baddo [Olamide]. He was so supportive. He had to pay ID Cabasa for the reproduction of ‘Vision 2020’. He sorted my video. And even posting it more [on social media]. He did everything he could do for Fireboy without me signing a paper.
He continued, “Poco Lee used to stay with Zlatan. I was in Mainland, and he [Poco Lee] was like, ‘Bella, come now we go just dey manage for here small small.’ And Zlatan, he received me with opened hands. Anything he [Zlatan] is in the studio recording, he always calls me. He always gives me motivations.”
The singer said he appreciate the help rendered by Olamide, Poco Lee and Zlatan Ibile to him during his humble beginning, adding that it made him who he is today.
