    What people don't know about Asake is that he is a Theatre Arts graduate from OAU who is passionate about what he does. He has directed several stage plays written by notable playwrights. He didn't just come into the music scene as a novice. He has learnt his trade well and knows his onions.

      ​@De Amore Beaute what rubbish have you written? How does Bob Marley's nationality come into what he's said? You missed his point completely just to push your bull crap

    • De Amore Beaute
      De Amore Beaute Month ago

      This is about the African diaspora and our various cultures. It has nothing to do with all the other non-African human populations. Contrary to popular belief, yoga is an African innovation that Indians get credit for. Bob Marley was Jamaican. This song is not about Jamaican culture.

  • Rasheed Adewusi

    This is very daring by Asake. This is giving the feeling of Angelique Kidjo and Youssou N'Dour, veterans who have written their names in permanent ink in the history of African Music.
    This is Asake leaving his comfort zone of the generic Nigerian Afrobeats to try a new Pan-African Sound, and this to me is a big hit.

    The rythm, the dance is called “Goumbé” from the lebbu culture. It’s spiritual and talks to the spirits of their ancestors… the lebbu are located in Dakar, Sénégal 🇸🇳 where Asake actually shot the video. They live near the sea and men are mostly fishermen and practice wrestling as entertainment. For those who watch the MMA might know the senegalese wrestler Reug Reug he belongs to this community… thank you again Asake for showing the culture 🙏🏾🇸🇳

      @Daniel Olugbemi bro I get wat u sayin… but no one is talking about indigenous here. We’re not talking about similarities, we’re talking about direct reference. Click the link and you will see the original song. Asake even credits it in song description. Africa we are one yes but we are of many diverse communities. So it’s about spreading awareness to the other cultures that the rest of the world don’t really know about. That’s how we learn and grow as a diaspora.

    • Daniel Olugbemi
      Daniel Olugbemi 6 days ago

    It will be difficult to consider this song for an award because it is a category of it's own. They will never understand how a musician can temporarily transform into a spirit to create a spiritual piece. It is too deep to analyze, too classy to classify. The highness of coolness. Essentially spiritual. Asake is possessed by the ancestors.

  • Joseph Omoyajowo
    Joseph Omoyajowo 11 days ago +12

    Let's stop the debate and just enjoy this beautiful piece of music. This song and video show how brilliant and deep Asake's knowledge and appreciation for the art is. I have learned right here some valuable lessons about some unique African cultures without traveling to these parts.
    The song is a sample of Michel Legris' 'Mo Capitaine' performed by Jason Heerah (it's in Asake's description as well).... so the song is definitely 'sega', like our Mauritian brothers and sisters have said. It also has elements of goumbe as our Senegalese brothers have said...which shows Asake has sought to mix the two, probably seeing the similarity between the two. He also chose to use the Senegalese culture in the video to pay homage to the lebu community.
    The fact that both genres of music from 2 different countries are similar (I might even add that there are similarities to Nigeria's apala music/beat) kinda suggests Africa was ONE before we were separated by borders and it's why our cultures are similar? This is interesting if you think about it. Thank you Asake

    Magnifique, l'intro samplée de "Mo Capitaine" de Michel Legris apporte une toute autre dimension à ce superbe titre. Ça m'avait même dérouté à la première écoute lol
    Du créole mauricien mélé à du Yoruba et de l'anglais pour souligner l'importance de la sérénité face à l'adversité.
    J'avais hâte voir le clip de ce titre que j'aurais souhaité un peu plus long tellement il est agréable (2m30 c'est peu pour un pareil lingot de mélanine lol).
    Je m'attendais beaucoup plus à des scènes de Méditation/Adoration Divine Africaines plus "forestières", vu l'importance de la nature dans la spiritualité Africaine et beaucoup moins à des quartiers de Dakar lol Mais cela reste dans le thème de la chanson (Rester zen en connexion avec Dieu et nous mêmes peu importe les difficultés que nous traversons)
    Très bel appel à la croyance Divine. J'ai de la peine pour les athées 😂
    Congrats to Asake 🔥👏🏾.

    The sample used on the song is from a well known sadly departed Mauritian singer called "Michel Legris" from the song "Mo capitain". It is with immense pride to see the traditional Mauritian Sega sound being used in such a wonderful way by an artist who really did justice to the original song. Thanks for exposing our sound to the world Asake.

    • Onyeka Enwesi
      Onyeka Enwesi Month ago

      Not exactly true. Sega tunes are faster than this and more Island based. The intro is an extraction from mo captaine but the song is nothing like what I heard while living Mauritius. I can distinguish the two because I lived in Mauritius for a long time but I am Nigerian.

    I'm very proud to hear as intro the ties of the African culture of my country which is Mauritius. The descendants of the African who walked this ground left us with the sega music and "‘Mo Capitain’ by the late great Michel Legris is one of treasure trove which we have here on the island... Thanks a lot for that...🙏🙏🙏

      @Update With Mike Uzoh For some help on your research, the majority of the shoots were taken at Gorée Island. Very mythical site were the slavery (mostly the gathering of the slaves from anywhere in africa) was happening. It was the “door” where our ancestors were forced to quit the motherland to America and some in Europe.

    This is what makes us ALL ONE; a strong cultural and spiritual African connection. This is PanAfricanism through a blessed musical talent - Asake. This is Africa; This is Nigeria. Lets cellebrate what unites us, not the Other way round.

      He has definitely reached that stage. He is very unique and and his style of music so distinct.
      That is why he will remembered for generations.

    As much as I love music naturally with all my heart, I seek to find the talent in an Artiste. Music is spiritual and can be spiritual. I think Asake has genuine music talent or gift. When the music hits the spirit and the mind, you dare lie that he is not talented. I (Ghanaian) was happy and fortunate to be in Nigeria last year, right about the time that Asake had taken over the music industry there. The Nigerian people love him and we Africans accept him as well. Go higher Mr Money/Asake/ Mr Money with the vibe right now! Continue the good work ... Trabeye 😉💙

    This again is not mere music… as expected with Yoga, it is strongly spiritual and spirit-connecting. Watching the video and listening to beats and the lyrics can take you far, especially if you understand the metaphorical meaning of the lyrics; you start to travel far and the goosebumps etc. ❤❤❤

    I'm short of words ...TG OMORI & Asake's Combo is ALWAYS litt! This song reminds me of the Pain my ancestors felt when they were taken away and Forcefully began to spread around the Continent...The truth remains We are One as Black People on the Face Of the Earth. This truth Will be revealed and Then Only Will We truly Know How powerful We are if We Become United....Great Job Asake...Your music took me to way back in the Times of Our Forefathers...I was caught up in the spirit to see how happy they were before they were taken Away to live like savages in foreign lands they weren't happy to be in...One day, We all will Be connected Again in Mother Africa..🥲🥲🙏
