Nigerian actor cum influencer, Idowu Adeyemi, popularly known as Yhemo Lee, has revealed how he assisted Afrobeats super star, Asake in meeting Olamide.
In an interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Yhemo Lee said he begged YBNL boss, Olamide Baddo to give Asake a chance, even if it was just a verse on a music single.
The nightlife king disclosed that although he has been friends with Olamide for 13 years, he didn’t expect a record deal from the YBNL boss.
Yhemo Lee further described the moment as unbelievable claiming that when he made a single with DanDizzy and YKB, Baddo heard the track, liked it, and reached out.
He said that Olamide initially requested DanDizzy’s contact expressing the desire to work together and that it was during the course of their online interaction that he spoke out in favor of Asake.
He claimed that after a few conversations, Olamide asked him to send an audio clip which he promptly recorded before sending it back to Yhemo.
Yhemo Lee revealed that Olamide began discussing promotions and that two days later he disclosed his interest in signing Asake to YBNL.
The promoter claimed that after going home, he went directly to Olamide’s house, where the contract was waiting for them and Asake signed the forms on the same day. Watch the interview below:
God bless Yhemolee and Olamide. Asake will never forget!
