Afrobeats sensation, Ahmed Ololade, popularly known as Asake, has claimed that humility is a waste of time and people do not appreciate it.
Asake made this known while chatting with friends in a video currently making the rounds online.
He recalled how some people once took him for granted because he was too humble, stating it is better to be egocentric, because too much humility often brings disrespect.
He added that when someone is self-centred, people feel the person is inaccessible and place more value on the person.
“To me, humility is like a waste of time. People don’t appreciate it. At the end of the day, life is about your perception. That is how I think. It’s my world.
I’ve been around people, that I tried to let them say who I am but they didn’t appreciate it. As an artiste, if you come to somewhere, if you’re humble, they will take you for granted. But if you have ego, they feel like you’re not accessible so they will like you more. People would rather see what you’re doing than you showing them humility. So, just do what you need to do.”
