Well, as Nigeria’s No. 1 Music blog, it is our duty to keep you all informed. So, let’s go.
Olamide New Pattern Of Naming Album
In the past years, Olamide albums name are very straightforward and you don’t need anyone to help you decode the meaning but lately, he has a new way of naming his album.
His previous album “Carpe Diem“, a whole lot of people had to use Google before they eventually got to know that the meaning is “Seize The Day” in English.
Now, Baddo has made a whole lot of you Google search for the meaning of the word “UY Scuti“. It’s fine, we will search because it’s Olamide.
Olamide’s New Album “UY Scuti” Is Not For Nigeria’s Audience
Ever since Olamide joined forces with Empire (an American distribution company and record label), a new scope of work has been outlined which they have to work with to capture the international market.
So, don’t expect anything from Olamide as we experience during the days of Shakiti Bobo, Omo Wobey, Elede Mi, etc because Baddo is on a whole new level to capture the international market.
Now, let’s get down to the main topic of today 👇
What Is The Meaning Of “UY Scuti”?
In clear terms, “UY Scuti” means “BIGGEST STAR”
If you’re an astrologer or a geography enthusiast, UY Scuti might seem relatable to you, this is because UY Scuti is a star.
UY Scuti is the largest known star in the universe, yes, in the universe. It might seem like the sun is a very big star, but that is because it is near to earth.
Quoting EarthSky directly:-
“UY Scuti is thought to have a mass only slightly more than 30 times the mass of our sun. But its radius is thought to be something like 1,700 times greater than the radius of the sun.
That would make this star nearly eight astronomical units across – that’s eight times the distance between the Earth and sun.
In other words, this single star is so large that its outer surface would extend far beyond the orbit of the planet Jupiter (which lies about five times farther from the sun than Earth).”
Relating UY Scuti To Olamide
Olamide is the “BIGGEST STAR” in the Nigerian music industry.. No doubt about that!
On Carpe Diem, ‘Another Level‘ precisely, Olamide said “I be big deal, I fit sell ice water to the sea” and literally, Olamide could, that’s how big of an artist he is in Nigeria.
He has dropped an album every year since 2011, bar 2019 and he has dropped other collaborative projects like ‘2 Kings‘ with Phyno and the ‘YBNL Mafia‘ album with all his artists. That’s a lot in 10 years, putting it in perspective, it’s 12 projects in 10 years when UY Scuti is released!
So, it’s easy to see why Olamide will compare himself to UY Scuti that is 30 times the sun’s mass and has a radius more than 1,700 greater than the sun.
I mean who comes near him in the Nigerian music industry with such discography?
