Ayomide Taiwo better known as Midey is a Rapper and a true Lyricist. He was born in Ebute-Meta west of Lagos Mainland but had his Formative years In Ikorodu. Midey wasn’t a mere child prodigy, he was one with a dream and determination, he discovered rap music when he was just under the age of ten. And over the years he has nurtured this dream and kept the flame burning.
Upon the release of his first Singles “Owo” and “Love You Die”, many could not stop but compare him with Olamide.
Although he wouldn’t want to be compared with anyone, “I am different. Respect me for me”. He would say.
There is no doubt Olamide’s music influenced him growing up, so did the works of MI, Dagrin, Reminisce, D’Banj and a few others.
So we can say he is a cocktail of so many artistes.
