Popular Nigerian Afrobeats star, Ahmed Ololade, known professionally as Asake, has disclosed why he uses his mother’s name as his stage name.
He explained that while he was in a cultural group people used to refer to him as Omo Asake because his mother’s name is Asake.
He explained that later the ‘Omo’ was removed and he was simply called Asake.
The ‘Joha’ crooner said he found it cool and decided to go by the name.
According to him, “My stage name is actually my mother’s. While I was in the cultural group, people used to call me ‘omo Asake,’ which means child of Asake in Yoruba. And after a while, it just stuck. People stopped adding the ‘omo’ and left ‘Asake.’ I thought it was cool and decided to go by it.”
Asake disclosed this in Pause Magazine’s Autium 2023 edition.
He also said he would continue to sing in Yoruba.
“It is very important to me, and I am not going to lose it. It is what has brought me this far, and I continue to keep it that way,” he said

Mohbad: ‘There Has Been Several Calls To Release Sam Larry’ – Police
There are indications that police in Lagos State are under pressure to release music promoter, Balogun Olamilekan Eletu, also known as Sam Larry.
Naija News recalls that Sam Larry was arrested and held for interrogation over the controversial death of 27-year-old singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad.
Sources at the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID), Yaba, Lagos, who spoke with The Guardian revealed that since Sam Larry’s arrest last week, there had been a series of calls to the Officer in Charge (O/C) SCIID, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Waheed Ayilara, to release the suspect.
The sources revealed that the individual calling made a promise to produce him whenever he is needed.
The source said, “There have been several calls to my boss to release Eletu, while the investigation continues. A renowned traditional ruler on the Island (names withheld) is always calling, pleading with my boss to release him after interrogation.
“When he became persistent, my boss directed him to the Commissioner of Police (CP), on the ground that he is the only one that can give the order for Eletu’s release or otherwise.”
The police further stated that investigations are still ongoing concerning the singer’s death and are still exploring other leads.
A source also alleged that Sam Larry confessed to the police that his disagreement with Mohbad stemmed from his indebtedness to the tune of N2 million, which the singer refused to pay.
According to the source, Sam Larry admitted going to where the late singer was having his show, prior to his death, allegedly to demand the money he owed him.
