Why Asake and I are no longer best friends – Oxlade

Nigerian musicians Ahmed Ololade aka Asake and Ikuforiji Olaitan Abdulrahman, better known as Oxlade, who were formerly closest friends, have recently prompted rumors of estrangement.

The two were formerly inseparable, as seen by several video recordings available online. There are videos of them freestyling. There are also videos available of when the two artists met in Berlin, Germany and couldn’t stop hugging each other, delighted to be in one other’s presence.

During Oxlade’s recent interview with Rolling Stone, he disclosed that he and Asake “back then” used to roll together and that the latter was one of the first persons to give him views on his song, which would go on to become an international smash.

Oxlade said in that interview:

“Back then, myself and Asake used to really roll together. He was like “Yo, the song is going to go crazy. It’s going to go crazy.” I was like, “Ehh, every song, everybody says it’s going to go crazy.”

The statement got many hinging on the fact that the two have become estranged and they weren’t wrong.

Fast forward to a fresh interview with Afrobeats Intelligence, Oxlade finally revealed that he and Asake are in fact no longer best friends.

In Oxlade’s words:

“ Asake used to be my best friend, but…y’know. He’s still my brother o, but…the game is the game.”
