In February 2022, musical director/legendary rapper, Olamide Adedeji announced a young singer (Asake) to the world in what was labeled “Omo Ope”.

It was a glorious announcement with a hit song in the Afrobeats world. Upcoming artist Ololade Ahmed would then have a glorious run – an inexplicable, phenomenal and stellar achievement in the history of Afrobeats.

In less than 7 months, Asake is truly “Omo Ope” and more. He has much to be grateful for and
didn’t get here by accident, it’s the result of dedication and hard work. In the same year, Asake
has gone from an upcoming artist to arguably the most loved and listened to artist in

The rising superstar is hard to place in 2022 between Next Rated Artist and Artist of the
Year, I think it is same at the time. I don’t envy the Headies Awards because an unprecedented string of back-to-back hits and amazing features made Asake endearing to listeners.

This is a golden run arguably close to or even better than Naira Marley’s hit-laden Marlian move of 2019.

His chart-topping debut album, Mr. Money With The Vibe’ was released on September 8, 2022 and within hours became the number one album in Nigeria.

The album set a new record on Apple Music after becoming the African album with the most streams on its first day as well as the most three-day opening streams. It also became the first album to have all of its tracks occupy the top 12 spots on Apple Music Nigeria’s Top 100.

The first album to have 7 songs in the top ten positions in TurnTable Charts history (On the Chart week of September 19, 2022)

The album debuted at number 66 on the Billboard 200, making it the most successful Nigerian album on the chart.

‘M. Money With The Vibe’ hit a new high after hitting No. 2 on the Billboard World Album Chart.

“MMWTV” peaked at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart and number one in 26 countries on the Apple Music Album Chart, including 6 European countries.

In the words of Asake, ‘They never see me coming’, surely no one ever saw it coming
as the young singer is now Nigeria’s favorite and even loved by overseas music audiences.


Asake is unique because his musical style is difficult to place. He infuses Amapiano, Fuji, Hip Hop and other fusions into his music. He also uses praise singing, eulogies and street hop to create an upbeat chorus. He adapted to the critics of being direct in his musical tone as his album showed distinction and improvements.

Asake’s ability to recreate street slang and jargon like Trabaye, Omo Ope, Palazzo and Sungba into euphoric beats is phenomenal.

His street jargon and Yoruba phrases still attract all music listeners around the world, as the beat is always accompanied by euphoria and ecstasy. Asake has formed a great bond with MagicSticks who are arguably Producer of the Year due to the duo’s plethora of hit songs in 2022.

Fans also can’t help but gush about cinematic videos from ace director TG Omori like Sungba, Bandana, Terminator, and Joha.

Asake is also beloved on the streets and everywhere due to his vocal dexterity, upbeat and celebratory chorus, and infusion of religious phrases into his music.

In “Dupe”, he sings of the essence of appreciating God and “shouts hallelujah regardless of the life situation”.

‘Dupe’ means to give thanks – Oremi o, dupe, yo kan e oh, Jowo, dupe, yo kan e oh

Shout “Halle”, because you’re not going too far today

Asake also appeals to some fans who like the way he uses Yoruba dialectical chanting like in ‘Terminator’ K’emi foh, ki’wo foh, K’ajo jokilijo, kilijo,

And quick reps
Peperi, peperipe, yeah
Peperipe, peperipe-ipe-‘pe
Fofori, fofori-fo, oh Foforifo, foforifo-ifo-‘fo

The singer’s ability to make sense of rhymes in multiple languages ​​is superb. Besides the dance vibe it gives in ‘Joha’, it rhymes with words like Sh’owa, T’oba, Durella, Godzilla, Maradona, Coachella, Emmanuela, Waahala, Tropicana, marijuana, Joanna and Ghana.

Peace Be Unto You (PBUY) reflects the theme of appreciating God for one’s current success while preaching hard work and celebrating one’s fame.

He is dressed as a pastor in PBUY but showcases Muslim culture in the song’s title and chorus.

Asake also preaches the essence of hard work with ‘Padi mi hustle lo, Kodigba ti nba ni ko tie up’ rather than drinking and being idle ‘Gbogbo nkan ko na ma fin jogor joor joor’ – Jogor is slang yoruba meaning ‘To be high or drunk with excess alcohol’

He uses heavenly words like Malaika and Sultana in Terminator, spoke Arabic in the first verse, and appeared to confess in Bandana Video.

Awake used Sodiq a Muslim name on Organize and talked about white dress lingo in Ototo.

He is also renowned for thanking God for his musical journey.

In Bandana, he sings: “And I thank the lord for going far”
