Asake, a well-known musician from Nigeria has admitted that, before breaking out as a vocalist, he worked as a stage performer.
In a latest interview, Asake revealed he used to be a dancer before poverty led him to change his career to singing.
He said this in an interview with ABC when talking about his early years and how his parents’ passion for music had influenced his career.
Asake said that he had been exposed early on at a young age to music by his classical-music-loving parents who always played records in their home.
Speaking on his love for dancing, he said that he had once been a dancer in the past, but at a point, he began to fall in love with the idea of having money too.
