Thankgod Omori Jesam, AKA TG Omori, a Nigerian video director, has recounted his meeting with popular Nigerian singer Asake three years ago, before the musician rose to prominence.
The Video Director stated in an interview with the Vanguard daily, “The first time I ever met him (Asake) was at the Intercontinental.” When I heard one of his songs, I told him to pull over. I knew him on Instagram before Olamide signed him.”
“We randomly just text on Instagram, and I encourage him that when the time is right, we are going to do it [shoot a music video].”
“Then one day I told him to pull up. He pulled up at the Intercontinental, and we had vibes and just chilled.”
“Then I told him to go and look for some money, like N5 million three years ago, and if he gets it, we are going to work together. He told me he would look for the money, but he never came back. ” It was later that he informed him he didn’t have the money.”
