I’m Not Aware of Rivalry Between Asake, Seyi Vibez – Ayra Starr

Afrobeats singer Ayra Starr has reacted to alleged rivalry between her colleagues, Asake and Seyi Vibez.
According to Ayra Starr, she’s not aware of any such thing.

While Asake and Seyi Vibez have not had any public spat, there has always been a chill between their fanbases, especially on social media.

In a recent interview with The Beat FM Lagos, Ayra Starr was asked whether her decision to work with both men on her sophomore album, ‘The Year I Turned 21,’ was intentional because of their rivalry and she denied knowledge of the rivalry.
According to her, she decided to work with them because she loves their sonic prowess.
She said, “I didn’t put Asake and Seyi Vibez on my album because of their rivalry. I didn’t know about the rivalry between Asake and Seyi Vibez. I just love both of them as artists.
“I’m really big on sonics; what would sound good sonically. My team is always thinking of the business side but I’m just thinking of who would be sonically compatible with me. And I’ve been listening to Seyi Vibez’s ‘Different Pattern’ for a very long time. So I decided to work with him. When I sent the record to him, he sent his verse almost immediately. They were very quick with it. Asake, too, he sent me his verse in three days.”

I Got A Neck Tatoo So I Won’t Get A Real Job – Singer, Asake

Popular Nigerian Afrobeats star, Ololade Ahmed, aka Asake has opened up on how he struggled before he made it big in the music industry.

Speaking with the GQ magazine, Asake, said the first step was getting a neck tattoo so he can’t get a real job.

All five letters of the singer’s stage moniker are tattooed in big, unmissable ink across his neck.

The 29-year-old artist said his tattoos symbolizes determination.

“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,” Asake explains.

Asake said he got the tattoo at a time when he felt especially discouraged, beaten down, and unsure about this music thing.

“I was tired,” he recalls. “I felt like, I don’t want to keep trying.”

His response to those feelings of doubt was to get a neck tattoo and give himself no other option.

“The second step is just working really, really, hard. You have to understand: I got there in two years, but I’ve been working for years,” he says.

“People are counting the days you’re successful. They don’t count the days you’ve been working toward it. Nobody gives a f3ck about that.”

Asake is chastised by Solomon Buchi for demeaning Christianity in the “Only Me” video.

Popular Nigerian writer and social media personality Solomon Buchi has joined other Nigerians in criticizing popular musician Asake for his latest “Only Me” music video.

Parts of Asake’s most recent video were leaked this week; Asake, whose true name is Ahmed Ololade, has drawn criticism from Christians for allegedly demeaning Christianity.

The Grammy-nominated performer performed a sacrament-like act alongside men and women who were dressed similarly in the worship house in the film, which featured her wearing a priestly gown.

Before dollars were sprayed after a while, he appeared to be serving the group of men and women in the robes as a priest, providing them with supplies that were as valuable as gold.

Buchi responded to the video on Instagram, calling the way she performed in the video—which has nothing to do with Christianity—”disrespectful.”

“Asake consistently disregards Christianity in his music videos. It is insulting to dramatize the Eucharist while dressed in priestly regalia for a music video that has nothing to do with Christianity, according to Buchi.

“In his Bandana film, he shows strange individuals being topped by cloven tongues of fire while black goats storm into the chapel. I believe Asake to be a Muslim. Why does he not do more in this way to make his Muslim faith look bad?

“Why ever listen to these openly disrespectful musicians who are Christians?

The way these musicians utilize Christianity as a prop in their music videos grosses me out. It is still there for visual purposes after that.
