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

Music artiste Ahmed Ololade, popularly known as Asake, has revealed that he begged YBNL Nation boss Olamide for two years before he finally agreed to sign him to his record label.

The ‘Lonely at the Top’ star disclosed this in a recent interview with Hip TV while narrating how he finally became a signee of the rapper.

Asake said Olamide invited him to his house one day and asked him whether he would like to join his record label, and he accepted without hesitation.

“Before he agreed to sign me, I’ve been begging Baddo 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,” he said.

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

He was listed among the top 10 most searched singers of 2023 by Google while ‘Lonely at the Top’ was listed as the most searched song.
