Singer Ahmed Ololade, better known by his stage name Asake, from Nigeria has discussed how his parents inspired his musical career.
The ‘Mr Money With The Vibe’ singer reportedly revealed this in a recent interview with ABC News, according to Newsmen.
Asake claims that his parents are huge music fans and that they frequently played him classical music as a child.
The singer claimed that his father’s early exposure to music sparked his passion in singing and his love of all things related to dance.
The 24-year-old continued, “At first, I was a dancer, but I added singing because dancing couldn’t pay enough.”
He said, “My parents used to play me a lot of classical Songs. They love listening to songs. The kind of father I have is the one that will wake up in the morning and have one cigarette then loud music.
“At the end of the day, I feel like I can actually sing. Then I added music to it. Maybe because I know how to dance then I know how to bounce on music.
I actually don’t want to be a musician in the first place. I just wanted to dance. It feels like water. I love everything that comes with dancing.
“But at the end of the day, after dancing I fell in love with having money too. Then I started thinking about it, is dance going to give me the kind of money I want?”
