I was booed for wearing pants to perform on stage – Asake recounts

Nigerian singer Ahmed Ololade aka Asake has narrated that before he became famous, he was once booed on stage for weariing only pants to perform.

According to him, he wanted to use the clout to get attention but it backfired spectacularly.

The ‘Sungba’ crooner disclosed this while featuring on the Ginger Yourself podcast.

He said: “Before I got the attention, I strived till I graduated from the university. I strived for like [another] two years before people like accept me.

“So there’s this performance. I wanted to perform Fela, so I was on pants and saxophone. I packed like six girls on stage. I asked them to be half-naked. You know, one thing about Nigerians is that once people are naked, they just forget about all the thing that is happening and just focus. But these people [at the concert] stubborn o. Those girls just walked in, then me too. I just walked in majestically as a star boy. I did not know where the first clap come from. The audience was like, ‘No, no, no.’ Everybody, like 9,000 capacity, clapping that they don’t want it.”
