Making my debut album was not stressful because Olamide helped – Asake



Rave of the moment, Ahmed Ololade better known by his stage name, Asake has spoken on the process of producing his debut album.

The YBNL act released ‘Mr Money with the Vibe’ on Wednesday, September 7 and it already debuted on UK and Nigerian charts.

During an interview with Ehiz on Apple Music Africa Now, the Terminator crooner was asked how long it took to record the 12-track album.

Asake said that his recording process is not not programmed or scheduled because sometimes he can go a whole month without recording a single song, whereas there are days he would wake up and feel like recording seven songs at once.

The music act also said than he can choose to stop recording at random and it all depends on his mood.

He, however, said that making Mr Money with the Vibe was a stress free process because Olamide helped make it so.

Asake said everything went as planned while working on the project and he is happy with how it all turned out.

Watch him speak below:

CorrectNG reported earlier that the street-hop singer recounted how ace rapper, Olamide noticed him and signed him to YBNL.

He said that before he got signed to Olamide’s YBNL nation, it took years of dedication towards achieving his heart desire.

Speaking in an interview with Cool FM, Asake revealed that he’s been sending messages to Olamide since 2020 but the label boss didn’t respond to any of his texts.

According to the ‘Sungba’ hit maker, he would slide into Olamide’s DM often asking for help and reminding him about how he helped his friends, of which Fireboy is among.

The singer further said he attended the same school with Fireboy, but the ‘peru’ hit-maker experienced a breakthrough in the entertainment business before him so he always brought it up while texting Olamide all in a bid to get the YBNL founder’s attention.

He added that sadly, all that didn’t work out at the time, but his dream turned to reality with the release of his smash hit, ‘Omo Ope’.

On how he met Olamide, Asake said the rap artiste put a call across to him and asked for a meeting only for him to reach there and get asked to join the YBNL family.
