How I begged Olamide for two years before he agreed to sign me – Asake spills



Ahmed Ololade, better known as Asake, a Nigerian singer, has revealed that he begged ace rapper and CEO of YBNL Nation, Olamide, for about two years before he agreed to sign him to the record label.

The ‘Mr Money’ singer claimed that the rapper invited him to his house one day and asked him if he wanted to join his record label, which he reluctantly accepted.

He claimed Olamide told him to consult with a lawyer and study the terms of the contract, but he was too excited and signed right away.

Asake stated in an interview with Hip TV:

“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.”

Asake signed to YBNL Nation in February 2022. That same month, he released his debut extended play, Ololade, which featured his breakthrough song ‘Omo Ope’ featuring Olamide and the single ‘Sungba.’
