Aside from producing and releasing numerous hits, Olamide‘s record label, YBNL introduced the world to sensational artistes such as Lil Kesh, Chinko Ekun, Adekunle Gold, Fireboy DML and nowadays, Asake.
Although not every YBNL signee turned out to amass millions of streams on Spotify and Audiomack, Asake is making sure his name doesn’t fizzle out before he attains his peak.
