Asake and Fireboy who are the current YBNL stars are not the only artists signed by the founder of YBNL, Olamide.

Asake, Fireboy and other singers who were signed by Olamide
We are going to outline most of the artists that were signed by Olamide, and how their careers got a major lift after coming into Olamide’s YBNL imprint. See them below:
- Chinko Ekun
- Lil Kesh
- Fireboy DML
- Adekunle Gold
Chinko Ekun has been doing music since 2011 but no one ever heard of him until he got signed by Olamide in 2015. He released one of the biggest hit singles of 2018 titled “Able God” which featured Lil Kesh and Zlatan Ibile.
A lot of us knew Victoh when Lil Kesh was at his peak some years ago because he got featured in Lil Kesh hit single “efejoku”.
Keshinro Ololade popularly known as Lil Kesh can be said to be one of the notable singers that was signed by Olamide. The “shoki” originator was signed by YBNL in 2015, and was the rave of that moment till after his contract expired in 2017.
It was in 2019 that I first heard the beginning of Fireboy’s breakthrough hit single “Jealous”, and I got hooked immediately. I got to know about Fireboy and how he got signed to Olamide’s imprint later that evening when I searched the song online to know who was behind that beautiful and melodious sound.
Whenever you hear the jingle “Ololademi Asake” what normally comes to your mind? Asake was introduced to the world by Olamide in 2022, and since then he hasn’t looked back.
