“Together let’s put an end to drug abuse” – Olamide speaks on Ongoing Conversation about “Science Student”



"Live responsibly and drink responsibly" - Olamide aims to stop Drug Abuse with "Science Student" Single

There has been a lot of criticism following rapper Olamide‘s new single “Science Student” especially as it is perceived to promote drug abuse.


The YBNL boss had erstwhile been silent on the issue but has now spoken via an Instagram post. He took time out to thank supporters of his music before advocating for an end to drug abuse.

He posted the above photo on his page and wrote:

Since the release of #ScienceStudent, the support has been massive. As you are all sharing, dancing, singing along to this relatable music of mine, I want you all to take some time to reflect on the subject, say no to drug abuse. Don’t abuse alcohol. Stop mixing what you don’t know about. Live responsibly and drink responsibly. Don’t aspire the ‘highness state’ but a state of purpose fulfillment and passion discovery. Together let’s put an end to drug abuse and save as many lives as possible. The video will be out soon and I can’t wait for you all to see it. #SayNoToDrugAbuse#DrinkResponsibly #ScienceStudent

      Quite the opposite. It heavily praises the concotion and use of hard drugs. If you are not Yoruba, get someone to interprete the song for you. Infact if you dont know what to mix illicit drugs, after listening to the song, you will know exactly what to do. What trash is he talking here after praising a fan’s ScienceStudent homemade video on his Instagram page that vividly describes how drug is wrapped and sniffed.

    Olamide doesn’t owe anyone explanations as to what they will mix or not. If his music puts people under undue pressure, that’s their cross not his. He’s making ‘good’ music the street loves. That’s his craft. Not everyone will play Brymo, Asa or Dare. All the best to the science students that will mix to their detriment.

      What you don’t realise is that the joke is actually on you. The so called science students you say will mix to their detriment are actually mixing to the detriment of our society. A lot of crimes committed are fueled by drugs and the need for drugs and the more drugs are involved, the more gruesome the crimes are likely to be. Like it or not Olamide is a public figure and a role model and he has influence on a huge youth demography (just look at the number of people dancing shaku shaku on SM.

      This so long as it does not touch me attitude will simply not cut it This is for you and the 28 people who love your comment.

    We live in an era where people are so daft now. Singing and dancing to all sorts in the name of music no one is reasoning well again. If not careful, it will soon reach the “hanging pose” according to EmmaOhmyGod’s video. These artists are only bent on making their money while you labrats are blinded by the ill effects.

    @Onyeka, what happened to Chari beginning at home? If Olamide influencer you or your circle, that’s your own fault. Is he on the $ or naira bill? If we take care of our individual corners, the whole world will be clean. Looking up to Olamide or his kind is so daft.
