Nigerian singer, Ahmed Ololade, known professionally as Asake, has revealed that he begged YBNL boss, Olamide for about two years before he agreed to sign him.

The ‘Peace Be Unto You’ crooner said Olamide invited him to his house on a random day and asked him whether he would like to join his record label, and he accepted without hesitation.

The Afrobeats sensation said the indigenous rapper told him to get a lawyer and study the terms of the contract, but he was too excited and signed immediately.

Asake made the revelation in a recent interview with Hip TV, as he revealed that he had been begging since 2020. In 2022 Asake joined the YBNL family.

Asake said; “Before he [Olamide] signed me, I’ve been begging Baddo [Olamide] since 2020 to sign me. One day, I got to his house, then he asked me… This part burst my head. This is how he signed me. He said, ‘How are you, Asake?’ I said I’m fine. And he asked me, ‘Would you like to join YBNL?’

“You don’t understand, for somebody you look up to, somebody you respect, somebody you’ve been longing to see, to ask you that question. I told him that I’m ready. He said, ‘Go and think about it. Go and look for a lawyer.’ I said, ‘Baba, sign me now now now. I don’t want any lawyer. Because I love the [YBNL] family so much even from afar.”
