Asake was my dancer before he hit stardom – Singer, Skiibii

Nigerian Afrobeats singer, Abbey Toyyib Elias, known professionally as Skiibii, has revealed that budding artiste, Asake, used to be his dancer.

He revealed that before Asake’s career skyrocketed, they used to go for shows together and the ‘Yoga’ crooner would be dancing while he sings.

Skiibii made this known while featuring as a guest on a recent episode of the Afrobeats podcast hosted by media personality, Adesope Olajide.

The ‘Sensima’ singer also revealed that he accommodated the ‘Amapiano’ crooner during the early days of his career.

According to him, many people do not know that Asake is a great dancer and that he was a theatre performer while studying at Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ife, Osun State.

He said; “I was discussing with someone the other day, he was saying ‘Asake just blew up now, he just entered the star mode.’
