Asake, the Nigerian music sensation who skyrocketed to fame in 2022 with his hit “Omo Ope,” surprised fans recently by publicly expressing his admiration for another rising star, Seyi Vibez. In a heartfelt message on his Instagram story, Asake declared his genuine love for Seyi Vibez’s hit song “Different Pattern,” dispelling any rumours of animosity between the two artists.
Both Asake and Seyi Vibez have taken the mainstream by storm with their unique styles of Afrobeats, Fuji, and hip-hop, often characterised as exciting “neo-fuji” music. Asake’s musical journey began in January 2022, captivating audiences with his tunes that incorporated traditional Yoruba music, while Seyi Vibez made waves later that year with his hit “Chance,” which bore some musical similarities to Asake’s “Organise.“
Despite their shared influences and similarities, particularly their use of elements from Fuji and Apala (another Yoruba music genre), the artists delve into different subgenres. Asake’s music often features the distinct sounds of Fuji music, while Seyi Vibez leans towards the rhythmic style of Apala. However, both artists share a common thread in their exploration of hip-hop and the incorporation of religious influences, leading to comparisons from fans.
However, any worries about a potential rivalry were put to rest with Asake’s public appreciation for “Different Pattern.” This gesture not only reaffirms the positive relationship between the two artists but also opens up exciting possibilities for future collaborations, much to the delight of fans who admire their distinct talents.
In short, Asake’s unexpected appreciation for Seyi Vibez’s music not only clears the air on any potential rivalry but also paves the way for exciting possibilities in the Nigerian music scene. The future looks bright for these two talented artists, both individually and potentially together.
