Nigerian singer, Ahmed Ololade, popularly known as Asake, has stated that his sound is influenced by the Fuji genre.
Asake stated this during a recent interview with the NATIVE magazine where he discussed the uniqueness of his music. He said despite being a fuji musician, he makes his music “presentable to everyone.”
He said: “Omo, me I be Fuji artist o. I use actual music the same way Fuji artists do their thing. I only listen to Fuji, Gospel, Baddo and myself. I’m just making my own more presentable to everybody. That’s where I’m from, I no be from rich family, but me I love the foreign life so my own (music) has to be modern.
“My sound is my sound. That makes it my sound, because you can’t understand it. The moment I understand it, that means it’s not my sound, so I have to keep dipping into my sound.”
While talking about how he is coping with fame, he said: “I won’t lie it’s been very stressful. But it’s nice now, and it’s what I’ve been praying for. I’m just finding my way around it and I dey try live my life. I think it has to be stressful, that’s the fun of it, so you know you’re working. Sometimes sha, you gats do like say you tire, make them no talk say you be machine.”
