Popular singer, Ahmed Ololade, widely known as Asake has shared the story of how Olamide invited him to his house one day and offered him a spot on his record label.
According to him, he begged his record label boss of YBNL, Olamide Baddo for two years before he eventually signed him into the label.
He said, without hesitation, he accepted the offer. Although Olamide advised him to consult a lawyer and understand the contract, he was too excited and signed it immediately.
Speaking in an interview with Hip TV, Asake said: “Before Olamide signed 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.”
Asake signed to YBNL Nation in February 2022
