Singer Asake

Afrobeat singer-songwriter, Ahmed Ololade Asake, professionally known as Asake, has released his debut album Mr Money With The Vibe.

Asake made the announcement on his social media platforms on Thursday where he shared the album cover.

The album contains 12 tracks including the remix of Sungba which featured Grammy Award-winning singer Burna Boy.

The fast-rising singer was signed by Olamide’s record labels YBNL on February 2022 and later got signed by Empire Distribution in July 2022.

The 27-year-old fully came into the limelight in 2020 when he dropped Magicsticks which was produced Mr Money.

Speaking about his journey into music in an interview with Punch, the Yoruba music artiste said: “Yes, music has always been my lifelong dream. I started with dancing and ended with music. It is the only thing I know I can do comfortably that gives me inner joy and peace. It started back in school when I was performing at school functions. It felt good and I made sure that feeling never left.”

Asake released his debut EP, Ololade Asake, a project that boasts of four-hit tracks – ‘Omo Ope’, ‘Sungba’, ‘Trabaye’, and ‘Baba God’. He further performed ‘Baba God’ at a live session organised by Glitch Africa in February 2022.

The YBNL signee collaborated with Grammy Award winner Burna Boy to record the remix of ‘Sungba’. The song was released on March 28 2022 and topped the music charts for several weeks.
