Femi Olu aka Sham Pain was born and raised in the harsh surroundings in Peckham SE15, London (UK) to Nigerian parents of which his Father is a Doctor and his Mother a PA Secretary. Moving consistently between Dallas and Atlanta since 1999 has really shaped this hot independent Nigerian unsigned artist. The USA southern influence is apparent and very raw with a twist, that twist being he was born and bred in the UK but sounds like he is from the deep South when he sings and then blurbs out his native Yoruba language or speaks in Pidgin.
Sham Pain added “It is clear my accent has “slightly” changed living in the USA for so long, but still having my English accent also mixed with my Nigerian accent all tightly blends together to give me my own signature vocal sound.” Sham Pain’s 5th album is entitled ‘4D Swagg (The Movie)’, based around his personal life it was initially written as a movie script before he broke down the scenes into several songs which when compiled make up the album. The ever talented songwriter/producer/artist/entrepreneur went very deep on this album and really covered a plethora of diverse topics. Listening to Sham Pain you will be moved by his signature “deep gruffy” raw voice and he is able to produce, write, rap and sing in many different styles and genres and proves it on this film score album.
The first single to be released from the album ‘4D Swagg (The Movie)‘ is entitled ‘Hatin On My Swagg‘. Sham Pain features Nigerian homegrown talent “Joey Plus“. The combination of both artistes raw swagged up energy hammer the infectious beat which was produced by Joey Plus. Listen up and lets know what you think!
