Nigerian singer Ahmed Ololade, better known by his stage name Asake, has disclosed that he pleaded with Olamide, the CEO of YBNL Nation and a legendary rapper, for nearly two years before Olamide agreed to sign him to the label.

The rapper allegedly asked the singer of “Mr. Money” to visit his home one day and asked if he wanted to sign on to his record label, an offer he grudgingly accepted.

He asserted Olamide advised him to consult with a lawyer and review the contract’s terms, but he was too excited and signed right away.

In an interview with Hip TV, Asake stated:

How I Begged Olamide For Two Years Before He Agreed To Sign Me – Asake Spills

“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.”

YBNL Nation signed Asake in February of 2022. In the same month, he released Ololade, his debut extended play, which included the single “Sungba” and his breakthrough hit “Omo Ope,” featuring Olamide.
