Asake once served as my backup vocalist – BlaqBonez
Emeka Akumefule, better known as Blaqbonez, is a notable Nigerian hip-hop artist who has disclosed that before becoming famous, Asake was his backing singer.
The performer claimed that since the beginning of their academic studies at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ife, Osun State, he has been pals with his colleagues Fireboy, Asake, Superboi Cheque, Yhemolee, and Zamorra.
The ‘Sex Over Love’ singer recalled that Zamorra and Asake used to provide background vocals for him in the studio.
On a recent episode of Hip TV’s Trending, BlaqBonez and reality personality Kimoprah discussed this.
“I have known Fireboy, Asake, Superboi Cheque, Yhemolee, and Zamorra since OAU days.
“Zamorra and Asake have always been great at backups. You know this thing Asake does now with his vocals, he has understood this thing from time. “So, I used to ask him to help me figure out these things. They’ve always been influential in my music journey because I feel like every phase of BlaqBonez helped build the BlaqBonez that I am now.”
