Asake Biography – His Music Career
Although Asake is his professional name, his real name is Ahmed Ololade Asake. The crooner, a Nigerian musician and composer, was born in Lagos State, Nigeria, in the late 1990s, and has lived there for the majority of his adult life.
Asake reportedly found his musical aptitude at a young age; as a result, in his early years, he started posting freestyles online and amusing viewers. With his song “Omo Ope,” which has topped music charts worldwide, Asake, who is also known as “Mr Money,” is currently considered to be one of the most promising and in-demand up-and-coming artists in the Nigerian music industry.
His musical expertise has been compared to that of vocalists like Bella Shmurda, Barry Jhay, and Zinoleesky, but his voice is believed to be even more alluring and passionate, which further distinguishes him and makes him popular with female fans.
It would be incomplete to write a “Asake biography” without mentioning that the distinctiveness of his music lies in the way that he fuses Yoruba rhymes with his delivery of the lyrics, bringing attention to the early days when 9ice wowed teaming fans with Gongo Aso among other chart-topping singles that rocked the early 2000s.
In beating 9ice to the game, Asake used a somewhat more inventive rhythm making him one of Africa’s most sought-after musicians at the moment.
It is important to note that Asake was a committed performer who also shared his craft online to the admiration of many who eventually became his ardent followers on social media before his big break, which came after the help of some Nigerian influencers like Tunde Ednut, Broda Shaggi, Sydney Talker, and many more who helped to post his music online.
Around 2018, he started releasing music, fusing vibrant Afrobeat beats with his unique style of singing and quick freestyling. He released “Lady” in 2020, which really established his career, after refining his sound through earlier singles like “Ayeeza” and “Kanipe.” His popularity was expanded because to nods from more seasoned skit creators like Broda Shaggi and Tunde Ednut, and he then released “Mr. Money,” which became one of his signature songs. Don’t Hype Me and Yan Yan from 2021 increased interest in Ololade Asake, his debut EP from 2022. Nigerian singer Olamide was a featured artist on the EP’s opening track, “Omo Ope,” which went on to become Asake’s biggest hit.
In 2020, the Nigerian Afro-pop musician Asake had breakthrough hit with “Lady,” an inescapably cheery song with a fast pace and upbeat sentiments. He continued to increase his fan base over the following two years with more singles like “Mr. Money” and the well-known Olamide duet “Omo Ope” which catapulted him to the top.
Asake Biography: Making his manager a millionaire and landlord
Not just for himself, but also alongside members of his crew, Ahmed Ololade Asake has perfected the art of setting records. Together, they are succeeding and setting new benchmarks. A few weeks ago, Asake’s manager and former TV host, Steve Nanna famously known as Stevenator, revealed on his Instagram page how working with Asake had transformed both his and his family’s lives. He displayed the accomplishment of buying a multi-million-naira home in the center of Lagos, which he did after only six months of working with Asake. It is considered an uncommon feat in the Nigerian music industry.
Asake Biography: Education
After finishing secondary school, Asake chose to study theater and performing arts at the renowned Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile Ife, Osun State, in contrast to the majority of his peers and mentors. After that, he moved to Lagos to further his musical career.

Asake Biography: Genre of Music
Given his versatility, it should go without saying that Asake cannot be confined to just one musical genre, but to cut to the chase, the genres of music where he has most clearly left his mark include Afropop, Nigerian Street Pop, Hip-Hop/Rap, and Afrobeats.
Asake Biography: Net Worth
Asake, who was once identified as an up-and-coming artist, is currently at the top of the music charts, which has had a tremendous impact on his value. Although he is still in the early stages of his career, his estimated net worth is currently around $35,000. However, given the momentum this quickly rising artist is experiencing in the music industry, we can predict that as he attracts more attention and begins working on collaborations with other artists, his net worth will increase.
Asake Biography: Love Life/Girlfriend
Hours ago, a female lawyer regretted not giving Asake her contact information when he made a pass at her. Asake tried to poke at the curvy, dark-skinned lawyer via a dm conversation, but she rejected him.
Asake has not yet made any details about his love life public, but as the saying goes, “honey attracts ants,” and the singer wouldn’t be the first.” Until he discloses his relationship status and probably state otherwise, Asake is currently single and enjoying his stardom with his family in Lagos.
Asake Biography: Love Life/Girlfriend Age
