“How poverty turned me into a singer” – Asake confesses, saying he was a dancer

Award-winning Nigerian singer, Ahmed Ololade who is professionally known as Asake has made a new disclosure on how he became a singer.

He revealed that it was poverty that made him pick up a career in music.

The 28-year-old said he was initially a dancer but added singing because dancing couldn’t fetch him enough money. Asake 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?”
