The Nigerian music industry has witnessed some amazing campaigns in recent times, like Mr Eazi’s breathtaking run in 2022, Naira Marley in 2019 and Omah Lay in 2022. Even as we thought we’ve seen it all, Asake activated another extraordinary campaign this year.
Thanks to YBNL and EMPIRE, Asake has been regarded by many as the artist of the year already, even with 4 months to go. Since the beginning of the year, everything he has placed his hand on has turned to gold. He’s been involved in multiple hit records, as a featured and lead artist.
Some of the hit records Asake has been involved in this year include, Omo Ope featuring Olamide, Sungba and its remix featuring Burna Boy, DJ Spinall’s Palazzo, Peace Be Unto You (PBUY), and Fireboy DML’s collaborative joint, Bandana. With all these hits in his bag, it doesn’t seem he is stopping anytime soon, he is out for all he can get. In fact, this is just the beginning and he has backed it up with a new single and the announcement of his forthcoming debut album.

Asake has released a brand new single entitled ‘Terminator‘ via YBNL Entertainment and EMPIRE. Produced by his frequent collaborator, Magicsticks, ‘Terminator‘ serves as the singer’s 4th offering for the year, following the release of his previous records, Peace Be Unto You (PBUY), the Burna Boy-assisted Sungba remix, and the Ololade Asake EP which consists of tracks like Sungba, Trabaye, Baba God, and Omo Ope featuring Olamide.
The record is befittingly complemented by a creative music video, directed by TG Omori. It stars renowned American model, Bria Myles who glamorously got wooed by Asake with lyrics such, “come make we talk I no be k*ller k*ller hire hire, this your loving get meaning for my body o, I want light my, wey my lighter ah yah ah yah, this your color no be fake oh omo mummy.”
Recall when Terminator was previously teased by Asake, it ignited a frenzy on social media as fans couldn’t contain their excitement. Now the complete package is out and yes, there’s more exhilaration on the streets. Every new announcement by Asake has been recently observed to propel excitement and yesterday wasn’t an exception as he officially announces the release of his forthcoming album.
The album is titled ‘Mr Money With The Vibe‘ and will serve as Asake’s first full-length album. It will be out on the 2nd day of September and will consist of 12 tracks, including Terminator, the previously released PBUY, and Sungba remix featuring Burna Boy.
