I couldn’t get job in Nigeria because of my tattoo – Asake

Grammy nominated Nigerian singer, Asake, has said that it is difficult for people who have tattoos on their body to get a job in Nigeria.

Asake stated this in an article on the latest issue of GQ magazine, where he recalled that because of his neck tattoo he couldn’t work for any company or do business owing to the stereotypes.

The artiste said; “In Nigeria, if you have a tattoo on your neck, you can’t work anywhere. I can’t work for any company. I can’t sell anything.”

Speaking about his sudden rise to stardom, Asake noted that his success in the Nigerian music industry was not an “overnight success” as many some may believe.

According to the ‘Yoga’ crooner, he had been working for years to attain success and he was only able to get to his destination within the past two years.

He said; “You have to understand: I got there in two years, but I’ve been working for years. People are counting the days you’re successful. They don’t count the days you’ve been working towards it. Nobody gives a fvck about that”.
