This was uncovered after an old video of the Sungba hitmaker was shared online and the video has gotten people talking online.
In the video, Asake who is currently making waves in the Nigerian music scene after releasing hit tracks “Sungba”, “Palazzo” and “Peace Be Unto You”, is seen performing as a backup singer for Broda Shaggi during a live performance.
