Why Asake ignored some of his old friends – Yemi Elesho


Content creator and skit maker Yemi Elesho has claimed that some of Asake’s friends from his days as an aspiring musician have become frustrated that he no longer reply their messages.

Elesho, who went to Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife alongside Asake, said that although friends hosted him during his four years there, the singer couldn’t afford housing.

He said since hitting stardom, Asake has moved on from keeping tabs on old friends because of his new-found lifestyle.

He did, however, concede that Asake could not reasonably bring everyone with him, therefore it was right for him to turn down some of his “old friends.”

Speaking in a recent interview with Echo Room, Elesho said:

“Asake is big and a lot of his friends are complaining that he doesn’t reply to their messages but it’s a natural thing, he can’t carry everybody along.”

Asake signed to YBNL Nation in February 2022 where he released his debut extended play, Ololade, which featured his breakthrough song ‘Omo Ope’ featuring Olamide and the single ‘Sungba.’

Recall that Asake recently opened up on how olamide advised him to leaave his girlfriend after he hit stardom.

The singer revealed that he excitedly told his lover about his accomplishment after earning a sizable quantity of money from his music profession and even gave her N2 million as a token of appreciation.

When his fiancée declined the thoughtful gift, thinking it insignificant in comparison to his newly acquired fortune, Asake was taken aback.

Considering her lowly upbringing, he was taken aback by her reaction, since he hadn’t expected it.

Asake confided in Olamide for help, and Olamide suggested ending things with the girlfriend and giving the money to his mother instead.

Following this counsel, Asake transferred the N2 million to his mother, enabling her to establish a thriving provision store.

He mentioned that he gave his mother the N2 million, and now she’s independent and does not need to rely on him for money anymore.
