Popular Nigerian singer, Ahmed Ololade, better known as Asake, has revealed that his love of money led him to choose music over dance.
Recall that the YBNL artiste is a talented dancer with a background in theatre performance.
Asake said this in a recent interview when he said that he wasn’t sure whether dancing would bring him the needed level of financial success.
“The reason I left dance is for my love for money. I want to be very honest. Dance is something that I love. But I’m not sure dance can give me the kind of money I want.
Even if you want to make it so gangster-like and there are so many people bumping, you still need to use the dancers. So, as they work together, I think for the love of money, I’d rather be singing,” he said.
When asked if he would pursue dancing if it brought significant success, he responded: “No, I would join music and dance together so I will have more money.”
A while back, Nigerian singer, Skiibii, has revealed that his colleague Asake, used to be his dancer before his rise to fame.
Skiibii disclosed this during his appearance on the latest episode of the Afrobeats podcast hosted by British-Nigerian media personality, Shopsydoo.
He noted that the “Omo Ope” star used to live with him during the early days of his career and would accompany him to perform at shows.
