Ahmed Ololade, better known by his stage name Asake, created a stir during his tour of the United States.
The Afrobeats musician was seen pulling a goat behind him as he performed the song “Trabaye” in Atlanta in the now-viral footage.
The goat, who was posing as “stubborn,” stood still and didn’t follow Asake.
On Sunday, Asake posted a picture of the goat along with the message, “Thank you ATL,” on his Twitter page.
The goat has long been a symbol of grandeur for well-known celebrities because it is the animal associated with the slogan “Greatest of All Time.” For this reason, many accomplished performers, including singers and athletes, give themselves the goat moniker.
Ayra Starr, a well-known artist signed to the Mavin Record Label, recently changed her Twitter profile picture to a goat.
The fact that Asake’s goat on stage remained stationary as he dragged it along with him certainly added a little drama for the singer on the Atlanta stage, with some even changing the singer’s well-known slang phrase “Ololade mi Asake” to “Elewure mi Asake.”
But in the Nigerian music industry and elsewhere, Asake, who is signed to YBNL Nation and Empire Distribution, continues to be the topic of conversation for music fans.
