Asake has emerged as the winner in the Album of the Year category at the 2023 Headies Awards. Asake secured this prestigious award by surpassing other exceptionally talented artists, including Davido, Rema, Burna Boy, and Omah Lay.
In the past, notable artists such as Fireboy, Falz, Simi, and Kizz Daniel have also claimed this coveted award.
Asake, who was additionally named the winner of the Next Rated category, signed with Olamide’s record label, YBNL, on February 8, 2022. His rise to prominence began in 2020 when his freestyle track titled “Lady” went viral, garnering significant attention from prominent internet influencers like Broda Shaggi, Sydney Talker, NastyBlaq, and others.
Interestingly, Asake’s entry into the music industry was somewhat accidental, as he initially pursued a career in dance and collaborated with various dance organizations and theatre companies during his high school years before venturing into music.
“Mr. Money,” his first release in 2020, reaffirmed his self-assuredness and commitment to staying true to his identity as he established himself as one of the rapidly emerging talents in the Nigerian music scene. His dedication and perseverance earned him nominations in three categories at the 2020 City People Music Awards, ultimately securing two of the three nominations, including the title of Most Popular Song of the Year.
