Asake used to squat in different houses, I witnessed his depression – Hotkid

Nigerian singer and songwriter, Adeola Moshood popularly known as Hotkid, has recounted how he housed Afrobeats sensation, Asake when he was still struggling.

He said Asake was a homeless person who used to shuffle between different people’s houses and in 2020, the ‘Yoga’ crooner squatted with him.

Hotkid claimed that he saw the YBNL act go through serious depression under his roof before being signed to top rapper, Olamide’s record label.

The ‘Otilo’ crooner made the revelation when he appeared as a guest on Hip TV programme, Trending, hosted by KimOprah.

Hotkid said; “The funny thing is that I never knew there was depression. Now let me just tell you this story real quick. In early 2020, Asake was in my room, he said he was depressed. I didn’t understand.

“Asake is my birthday mate. He was sleeping in my room. Then he didn’t have an apartment. So he was just shuffling people’s houses. He was in my room one night and was like how long does he wanna do this. I was cheering him up. I didn’t know that my own depression was coming.

“That’s why I always say it is easier to give opinions when you are not in someone’s shoe. So when I see people in some situations, I feel bad for them. Don’t judge. You don’t have any opinion. You are not perfect. It’s God that is helping you. Do you think the people you are judging are happy they are passing through that situation? Before I was like that but now I know better.”
