Asake, also known as Ahmed Ololade Asake, the well-known Nigerian singer, released “Yoga” as a new single on January 30, 2023.
The “Mr. Money” crooner released the song, primarily delivered in Yoruba, coupled with a charming music video depicting a poignant message deftly woven throughout the song.
Asake claims that the song is about zen and tranquility. Yoga has become the No. 1 song on Apple Music Nigeria.
Due to the release of his breakthrough album, Mr. Money With The Vibe, in September of last year, the singer enjoyed tremendous success. The 12-track album donated the charts, which led to multiple sold-out performances.
Unfortunately, fans stormed the barricades during one of his sold-out performances at the O2 Academy Brixton in December, resulting in two fatalities and several injuries.
Asake addressed the tragedy on Twitter shortly after, and his new song, “Yoga,” produced by Magicsticks, is a visual continuation of that search. Asake, a film by TG Omori, searches Dakar, Senegal, for highly-needed peace, with reality TV star Alexis Skyy acting as a dependable ally.
Asake stated that the track’s inspiration was “minding my business and maintaining my quiet so no one can disrupt it.”
In the early hours of January 30, 2023, the Nigerian musician, who has constantly released songs since becoming a household name, took to social media and shared a sneak peek of the new album with his followers.
The music video, which acclaimed cinematographer TG Omori directed, was shot in Dakar, Senegal, and features vibrant images. The YBNL signee had a very successful year in 2018. We called 2022 The Year of Asake and noted the singer’s “clear-cut control of the year was without question.”
According to the earlier OkayAfrica essay, the Nigerian megastar has historically found musical inspiration in street-hop artists like Lord Of Ajasa, DaGrin, and Olamide, who reflected their struggles in their music. Asake employs his good fusion of spiritual affirmations and Fuji music in “Yoga.”
