Poverty made me become a singer – Asake

Popular Nigerian singer and YBNL act, Ahmed Oloade, popularly known as Asake has revealed how poverty turned him into a singer rather a dancer he used to be.

Asake said he was originally a dancer but added singing because dancing couldn’t fetch him enough money.

He revealed this in a recent interview with ABC News.

The ‘Terminator’ crooner said his early exposure to music by his dad also made him develop an interest in singing.

He said: “My parents used to play me a lot of classical Songs. They love listening to songs. The kind of father I have is the one that will wake up in the morning and have one cigarette then loud music.

“At the end of the day, I feel like I can actually sing. Then I added music to it. Maybe because I know how to dance then I know how to bounce on music. I actually don’t want to be a musician in the first place. I just wanted to dance. It feels like water. I love everything that comes with dancing.

“But at the end of the day, after dancing I fell in love with having money too. Then I started thinking about it, is dance going to give me the kind of money I want?”
