Asake was my backup singer – BlaqBonez



Emeka Akumefule, commonly known as Blaqbonez, a Nigerian hip-hop artiste, has disclosed that rave of the moment, Asake, used to be his backup singer before becoming famous.

He stated that he had known his comrades Fireboy, Asake, Superboi Cheque, Yhemolee, and Zamorra since they were students at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ife, Osun State.

The ‘Sex Over Love’ singer revealed that Zamorra and Asake used to help him out in the studio with background vocals.

BlaqBonez disclosed this in a recent chat with reality star, Kimoprah on Hip TV’s programme, Trending.

He said, “I have known Fireboy, Asake, Superboi Cheque, Yhemolee, and Zamorra since OAU days.

“Zamorra and Asake have always been great at backups. You know this thing Asake does now with his vocals, he has understood this thing from time.

“So, I used to ask him to help me figure out these things. They’ve always been influential in my music journey because I feel like every phase of BlaqBonez helped build the BlaqBonez that I am now.”
