Ololade Ahmed, often known as Asake, is a well-known Afrobeats artist from Nigeria. He has shared his struggles prior to becoming successful in the music business.

Asake stated in an interview with GQ that obtaining a neck tattoo was the first step toward being unable to obtain an actual employment opportunity.

The singer has a large, noticeable tattoo over his neck that features all five of his stage names.

The 29-year-old artist explained that his tattoos represent 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.

According to Asake, he got the tattoo during a particularly depressing, hopeless, and uncertain period in his life.

“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.
