Asake talks the process of getting signed to YBNL

Published

on

Ahmed Ololade Asake, simply called Asake professionally was a guest on Nigerian entertainment network HipTv for a Next Rated interview, talking them through the process of him becoming “Mr Money” and finally sealing the ultimate deal with YBNL Nation whom he considers a “family“.

Olamide who jumped on one of Asake’s song (“Omo Ope”) before signing him to his YBNL imprint had done that through Yhemo Lee (a socialite and social media influencer)—Asake’s housemate—without Asake even knowing, “I was not at home, something happened between me and my guys. I left the house for them so I was very very sad and on the third day, I came back to the house, then my guy Yhemo Lee called me and said “Baddo has jumped on of your songs”, Asake in disbelief told Yhemo Lee in Yoruba to stop playing with him, “Sho fe ma whine me ni?” he asked and to his biggest surprise, Yhemo Lee played Olamide’s verse on “Omo Ope” for him.

Asake went on to release the song on 19 January 2022. He received a call from Olamide a week after, requesting for a meeting in his Lagos residence to which he complied promptly. On getting to Olamide’s house, he was asked the life-changing question: “How are you Asake? Would you like to join YBNL?” an utter shock to the singer but amidst the euphonic emotions in him visible to everybody around, he answered favourably, even hasting to having the deal sealed instantly at that moment, neglecting Baddo’s advice to go home and think about it due to the rush of excitement and adrenaline rushing through his body system.

Asake even revealed he had been begging to get signed to YBNL Nation since 2020 before his dreams came to life in 2022. He also talked about how much he dearly respects Olamide, holding him in high regards, even wishing for more collaborations between them after the chart-topper “Omo Ope” single which video has garnered 4.2M YouTube views since its release a month ago. He released his debut EP—Ololade Asake —on February 17.

A-Q, Blaqbonez, Loose Kaynon and M.I Abaga join forces for collaborative project “BEHOLD THE LAMB”

Hip-Hop is still in vogue! Chocolate City’s comrades joined forces in setting matters right on the joint album—“BEHOLD THE LAMB”.

Chocolate City artistes M.I Abaga, Blaqbonez and Loose Kaynon and affiliate A-Q who have come together on numerous occasions, always featuring one another on songs and projects, have finally decided to set matters right, coming together on the joint album, BEHOLD THE LAMB, a Hip-Hop/Rap project.

LAMB is an acronym for Loose Kaynon, A-Q, M.I Abaga and Blaqbonez using the initialism method; all four rappers have appeared on three cyphers namely: Martel Cypher 2019, Martel Cypher 2 (2020) and LAMB Cypher 3.0 – The Last Cypher (2021, which also coincides as the last track on BEHOLD THE LAMB).

BEHOLD THE LAMB is a collaborative album by Chocolate City and Cordless in partnership with Boomplay, hence it made its debut on the streaming platform a day before the general availability on all DSPs on July 6. Asides from the four amazingly talented rappers who co-own the project, Chike (Snapchat vs Facebook), PsychoYP (Famous Sh*T), Ko-jo Cue (Receipts), Bien & Khaligraph Jones (Plus 254) all feature on the album.

Tracklist for BEHOLD THE LAMB

The majority of the production was handled by late beat maker BeatsByJayy and the album—BEHOLD THE LAMB—consists of 10 tracks enough to satisfy the hunger of Hip-Hop lovers in Nigeria and abroad as they have been discussions in the country about the seemingly fading state of rap in Nigeria but with A-Q, Loose Kaynon and M.I Abaga delivering bars-on-bars over flows-on-flows aided by Blaqbonez’s versatility in singing and rapping and the topics touched on, it is safe to say rap is very much still in vogue in the country.
