Victor Osimhen, a striker for Napoli, has admitted that he uses Olamide’s rap music as motivation before entering the playing field.
Olamide, according to the Super Eagles player, is his favorite Nigerian musician.
Osimhen stressed that he approaches every bout with the idea that he is going to war in an interview with Pooja Media, adding that he also listens to Nas and Damian Marley’s “Only the Strong Survive.”
He said: “First of all, after lunch, like my spare time, when we are relaxing, like two or three hours before the final meeting to go to the stadium, I listen to Olamide’s rap [songs]. There’s some kind of rap he has done in recent years that is really inspirational to me.
“Olamide is my best musician in Nigeria. And I have this playlist that I use to go to listen to his songs.
And after everything, when we are in the bus, I used to listen to Nas and Damian Marley’s ‘Only the Strong Survive’. So, when I listen to these songs, I always put in my head that I’m going to war. Everything I’m playing, I’m going to war, that I’m going there to die, or someone is going to die. ‘Only the Strong Survive’ means I want to win; I don’t want to lose.”
