Afropop and Afrobeat musician Asake, often known as MR. MONEY, hails from Nigeria. And was raised by Yoruba parents in Lagos, Nigeria, where he was born Ahmed Ololade in the late 1990s. He sings and writes songs.
The Department of Theatre and Performing Arts at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Osun State, awarded him a Bachelor of Arts degree.
He gained notoriety in 2020 when his freestyle performance of “Lady” went viral and received a favourable response from a number of well-known online influencers, including Broda Shaggi, Sydney Talker, NastyBlaq, and others.
He started out as a dancer and worked with several dance organisations and theatrical companies throughout high school before he decided to try his hand at music. His entrance into music was wholly accidental.
His debut single for 2020, “Mr. Money,” stresses his self-assurance and commitment to his uniqueness as he establishes himself as one of the rapidly emerging musicians in Nigeria.
He was nominated in three categories for the 2020 City People Music Awards because to his diligence and effort, and he won two of them, including Most Popular Song of the Year.
Asake has also been on some of the most anticipated songs of the year, such as “Star” by Broda Shaggi and “Gegeti” by DJ Xclusive.
On the remix for his 2020 blockbuster tune “Mr. Money,” he worked with Afrobeats heavyweights Zlatan and Peruzzi.
“Shanor,” “Medusa,” and “Don’t Hype Me” are some of Asake’s best-selling albums.
