On April 18, 2021, Nigerian Music star, Olamide announced that he is set to release another album.
The album will be titled UY Scuti and it will be released on June 14, 2021, just eight months after the release of Olamide‘s 10th solo studio album, Carpe Diem, which dropped on October 8, 2021.
In 2019, the YBNL boss didn’t release any body of work. During a 2020 chat, he told Pulse Nigeria that he released 999 EP because he hadn’t released anything in 2019, due to ongoing work with his star act, Fireboy.
‘Carpe Diem‘ has since become a groundbreaking album which produced three hits; ‘Loading‘ featuring Bad Boy Timz, ‘Infinity‘ featuring Omah Lay and ‘Triumphant‘ featuring Bella Shmurda.
However, on the release of the album title, fans got confused on the meaning of ‘UY Scuti‘, but carefully analyzed below is the meaning of UY Scuti and how it relates to Olamide.
Since his debut album in 2011, Olamide has dropped a personal album every year except in 2019. He did make up for this in 2020 with ‘999‘ EP and the still trending ‘Carpe Diem‘.
UY Scuti also follows this pattern of his yearly album release.
