I Was A Dancer, Poverty Made Me Become A Singer – Asake Reveals

Nigerian singer Ahmed Ololade, popularly known as Asak, has a new revelation.

He revealed that poverty made him consider a career in music.

The 24-year-old said he started out as a dancer but added singing because he couldn’t make enough money dancing.

He revealed this in a recent interview with ABC News.

The “rich and stylish” singer said his father’s early exposure to music also got him interested in singing.

He said: “My parents used to play me a lot of classical songs. They loved listening to them. I had this father who would wake up in the morning, smoke a cigarette and listen to loud music.

“At the end of the day, I felt like I could actually sing. Then I added music to it. Maybe because I can dance, I know how to bounce to music. I actually didn’t want to be a musician in the first place. I just Want to dance. Feel like water. I love everything dancing brings.

“But eventually, after dancing, I also fell in love with being rich. Then I started thinking, will dancing give me the money I want?”
