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

Nigerian singer, Ahmed Ololade, popularly known as Asake, has revealed that veteran Nigerian rapper and CEO of YBNL Nation, Olamide, has agreed to sign him to the record label after begging for two years.

Asake said things took a turn when Olamide invited him to his home and asked if he would like to join his record label, and he accepted without hesitation.

According to the singer, Olamide told him to hire a lawyer and study the nature of the contract but he was too excited and signed immediately.

He said: “Before he (Olamide) signed me, I have been begging Baddo (Olamide) since 2020 to sign me.

'One day I arrived at his house and he asked me… This part burst into my head. This is how he signed me. He said, “How are you, Asake?” I said I'm fine. And he asked me, 'Do you want to join YBNL?'

'You don't understand that someone you look up to, someone you respect, someone you wanted so much to see, asks you that question. I told him I'm ready. He said, 'Go and think about it. Go get a lawyer.” I said, 'Baba, draw me now now. I don't want a lawyer. Because I love the family (YBNL) so much, even from far away.”
