Nigerian singer, Asake, has said that it is difficult for Nigerians who have tattoos on their body to get a job in the country.

Asake made this known in an article on GQ magazine, where he stated that because of his neck tattoo, no one employed him nor was he able to start a business due to the stereotypes.

Asake said; “In Nigeria, if you have a tattoo on your neck, you can’t work anywhere. I can’t work for any company. I can’t sell anything.”

Relishing on his fast rise to stardom, Asake noted that his success in the Nigerian music industry was not an “overnight success” as many some may believe.

According to the ‘Yoga’ crooner, he had been working for years to attain success and he was only able to get to his destination within the past two years.

He said; “You have to understand: I got there in two years, but I’ve been working for years. People are counting the days you’re successful. They don’t count the days you’ve been working towards it. Nobody gives a fvck about that”.
