Asake has sold out tickets to his London concert in few minutes. This is a shock for a lot of fans, especially rival fans who have always considered Asake a “local artiste” and shared the opinion that singing in his local dialect is a limitation to his acceptance abroad.
Asake who is currently touring the US and the UK simultaneously has sold out the O2 Brixton arena which has a capacity of five thousand seats. One report claims the sold out was recorded in two minutes, another says it was achieved in five minutes.
Asake, signed under Olamide’s YBNL and the foreign label known as Empire, appeared with a snippet of a collaboration with Tiwa Savage three weeks after the release of his debut album. Asake’s run, with the sold-out in UK, has proven the singer is beyond the limiting factors foreshadowed by rival fans.
