“I dm the bossman, Baddo, I didn’t write Asake first o, I went to my brother first, so I cornered him, I wrote ola like Baddo I am doing my album and need Asake on a verse and he said send it nau, I can’t tell you no nau. Who has Asake verse? I am not sure Asake would even give anybody Asake verse
“So I sent the song to Baddo’s WhatsApp I think then Baddo was on tour, Funny enough Asake loves recording when Baddo is there, like presently there, so Asake said he wants Baddo to be there with him when he is Voicing. Baddo is also one of the writers of the song as well.
“Asake sent the verse and it was fire, I said Baddo nice one, so we signed, cleared and delivered”
