Yhemolee says he recommended Asake to Olamide and got him signed to the YBNL music label. 


 The nightlife influencer, in an interview, narrated how he reached out to Olamide, who runs YBNL, about Asake.

Yhemolee said Olamide showed interest in Asake’s music and featured in ‘Omo Ope’, Asake’s breathrough hit.

The promoter said Olamide later signed Asake to his label which is home to a number of successful music stars.


“One day we were chatting and I realised that Baddo (Olamide) was online and replying to messages quickly. So I told him that I had something I wanted him to do for me,” Yhemolee said.

“I told him that I have an artiste and that his name is Asake. Baddo said Young Jonn has told him about Asake and that he is good. While we were talking, I went to the file where Asake usually sends me his unreleased songs.

“I sent the songs to Baddo’s mail. I told him I sent two songs by Asake to his mail and that he should please listen to them whenever he’s free. I told him anything he can help me do for Asake, he should please do.


“Baddo asked me to send money and that Asake’s verse will be ready on the same day. I couldn’t believe it.

“Baddo said he likes one of the songs I sent and that he listened to it all morning. I thought he was joking. He later sent me his verse on the song and when I heard Baddo’s verse, I knew this is the song.

“The ‘Omo Ope’ song was emotional and personal to Asake and Baddo was able to connect to it. Then Baddo said we should start promoting the song, his energy was right and I liked that.

“Two days later, Baddo said he likes Asake. I told him Asake is my brother and that he should go ahead.  Luckily Baddo was just staying about ten minutes away. We went to his house and signed the papers the same day.”


In 2022, Asake was signed to YBNL. In the same year, he released ‘Mr. Money With The Vibe’, his debut album.

Earlier this month, the singer put out a 14-track album titled ‘Work Of Art’.
