Unbeknownst to many, the “Bhaddest Boy” singer claimed that Asake is an excellent dancer and added that he performed in plays while attending Obafemi Awolowo University in Ife, Osun State.
“I was discussing with someone the other day, he was saying ‘Asake just blew up now, he just entered the star mode.’
“Asake used to travel with me to shows. Asake used to stay with me, travel with me to shows and all that. When this guy blew like this, he just entered… I was like, una never see anything, the Asake wey me I know, una never see anything.
