You can't force your influence on someone

Following Danny Young's claim of inspiring Asake and Seyi Vibez, Legit.ng spoke with Tobi Crackit, a social media manager.

According to Crackit, it is up to the inspired person to reveal who their inspiration is. He said:

"I wouldn’t say Danny Young influenced them because the artistes themselves know who influenced them. You cannot force your influence on someone who doesn’t even see you as an influence. His style might be similar, but influenced? I don’t think so."'

Speaking further, Crackit also addressed the issue of people feeling the need to claim they paved the way for others.

"About people claiming to be trendsetters, it is just how humans are. Everyone wants to be seen differently, unique and all that. In the end, it is fans that will decide who is a trendsetter or an influencer. And that’s why it is important to document history", he said.

Asake, who made it to the limelight some months ago after dropping his hit song “Omo Ope” featuring YBNL label boss Olamide, has amassed many fans and lovers.

However, Asake, in an interview, revealed his newfound fame has made it difficult for him to spot the difference between those who show him fake love and those who really love him.
