Olamide, Phyno to collaborate on album, 2 Kings

Both artistes rap mostly in their native tongues

Rappers, Olamide and Phyno, have announced that they will release a collaborative album titled, 2 Kings, in 2014.

Olamide, who released his third album, Baddest Guy Ever Liveth, late 2013, broke the news via Twitter.

“Next album 2kings Olamide and Phyno. They are not ready … Start anticipating,” he tweeted on Thursday.

Phyno confirmed the news when he posted Olamide’s tweet on his Instagram page.

Olamide mainly raps in Yoruba, while Phyno raps in Igbo.

The collaborative album, if it sees the light of the day, may be the first of its kind in Nigerian music industry. Several artistes have recently announced plans to release collaborative albums – Wizkid and Wande Coal, Davido and MayD – but none has materialised yet.

The two had earlier collaborated: first on Phyno’s ‘Ghost mode’, then on Olamide’s ‘Dope money‘.
