Asake pays tribute to two women who died during his concert in the United Kingdom while performing in Lagos

Fast-rising Nigerian musician Asake made headlines as he paid respect to the women who passed away during his London concert at his Lagos performance.

Recall that the crowd surge at the Asake concert in the UK resulted in the deaths of a 23-year-old security detail and a mother-of-two, Rebecca Ikumelo, both of whom were victims.

The YBNL singer most recently made a stage comeback in Lagos on December 22, pausing his performance to pay respects to the departed.

The Joha crooner asked the crowd to be silent as he apologized for the terrible deaths of the two women in London in a video that has gone viral.

He said:

“Inside of me I feel pain for them. But may their souls rest in peace. Before we go on, I just want us to have a minute silence for them, for those who lost their lives in London, may God be with them.”

After the video quickly became popular online, netizens responded with a variety of opinions. Many individuals urged for Asake to be sued because they were angry to see him perform again. Others, though, pointed out that his homage won’t make the women come back to life.

“He should have canceled this show.Two people died while the third is still between life and death as a result of the stampede at his canceled London show but he could run down to Nigeria to host the next show few days after.That’s the height of insensitivity and inhumanity.”

“This is the same thing I always tell people, do whatever you can to save your life, keep off from places or anything that will lead to your untimely death because if you ever die today no body cares and life goes on immediately, not even your siblings will stop other important things they are doing because of your death . Try your best to manage your life and live the rest for God.”
