Singer Olamide Adedeji aka Baddo has responded to some of the reactions that followed his latest single, “Science Student.”
Olamide is known for dropping songs, slang and even dance steps that goes viral on the street which some will welcome and some reject.
Just like his other songs, his “Science Student” has caused frenzies in the society as some hold that the song promotes usage of hard drug. The singer has come out to throw more light saying the song is actually a cry against drug abuse.
Popular actress, Lala Akindoju last week criticized the way Nigerian musicians seem to promote and encourage the use of hard drugs and substances in the name of music and dance although she made no mention of Olamide or his song.
However, the singer has come out to explain that his song is never intended to promote drug but actually a plea to the people who mixes substances they know nothing about just to get high.
According to him, he claimed that his song is a way of trying to curtail drug abuse in the society to completely eradicate the menace permanently.

“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.”
