Sensational singer and YBNL’s finest; Asake has disclosed how he made a switch from dancing to making music and how the journey has been for far.
The fast rising superstar revealed that it was serious poverty that set him into the path of making music.
Speaking in an interview with ABC News, he said that he was originally a dancer but added singing because dancing couldn’t fetch him enough money to make ends meet.
He also shared that he was introduced into the world of music by his father at a very young age with classical music.
“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?”
