A completely different one from Olamide, we tried to rack our brains at the office and we could not come up with any meaningful love songs that Olamide gives himself to love like criteria (no stupid love doesn’t count as obviously the love was stupid). Is Criteria a hit or not? Well, fans on social media are saying it’s a hit. What do we think here in the office? We are not so sure ourselves, some Olamide stans insist it’s a hit, while some conclude that at best it is just a decent song and nothing more. The last faction says it is nothing to write home about and Olamide should just go on a hiatus.
Olamide is a phenomenon in the Music Industry.' Criteria' is a switch from his usual high tempo songs. We are glad Olamide is not scared to try new things, this was a fresh breath from all the shaku shaku and other dance-inspired songs.
Obviously, this is not Olamide's strong suit, he could have done better with the rendition of the song, it lacked the richness we are used to hearing in Afro pop or any of it's variations.
