Nigerian afrobeat singer, Oyetundun Omoladé, popularly known as Ladé, and a group of friends have released a video where they sang “Adulthood na Scam“.

Ladé released the video on her Instagram page, where she sang about how tough life as an adult could be. She sang: “Nobody go ask you if you don chop, nobody go send you free money”, she sang.

In another video of the song, Ladé is seen vibing to the song with popular Nigerian singer, Reekado Banks.

In yet another video, a lady, who appears to be a mum, is seen lecturing her kids about the scam called “Adulthood”.

The phrase “Adulthood na scam” has been popular among many young people in Nigeria, as they have lamented about how tough the reality of being a grown up has turned out, as against the childhood fantasies they had about adulthood, imagining some luxuries that come with it, like the enjoyment of freedom, the luxury of spending real personal cash, and other good things that come with being an adult.

Ladé started her career officially in 2015 but her consistency, love and her passion for her music brought her to the limelight of fame, after doing a cover to Simi’s Duduke in 2020. Ladé has recorded jingles for top brands in Nigeria.
