Once again, Social media has proven its relevance in promoting stars and raw talent. This was enacted in the case of young rapper, Picazo, who did a cover of Chinko Ekun’s song, ‘Able God’, featuring Lil Kesh and Zlatan.
Chinko encouraged rappers to drop verses and freestyle on the beat which he released online. Picazo’s version attracted great admiration from industry bigwigs and online users who reposted the video till it got to the right hands.
YBNL Boss, Olamide, saw the video and got interested immediately and has taken to his page to announce the deal with an image of the artist alongside the caption”signed”.

Nigerians have also pleaded that an agency recognises Picazo’s friend, Yomi Blaze, another raw talent whose rap lines are equally tight. See below:
Now that Picazo is signed to YBNL, I think it will only make more sense if the other guy in the crew, Yomi Blaze gets a record deal too.
