ASA: LIVE IN LAGOS
by Ladun Ogidan
The first ever Asa concert is set to hold 6pm on May 1, 2016 at the Eko Convention Centre of Eko Hotels, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Asa was born in France but was raised in Lagos, Nigeria. Her metaphor-laden lyrics and soulful rendition fused with R&B, Afro-music, jazz and funk speak of rich musical influences by major acts
like Fela Kuti, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and Lagbaja. Her work also reveals the input of the exceptional Nigerian producer, Cobhams Asuquo, whose visual impairment does little to hamper
his ingenuity as a songwriter, producer and promoter.
In 2008, Asa produced her first Album ‘Asa’, which won Best Fresh Talent at the Constantin Award, a popular French music award. In October 25, 2010, Asa released her second album, ‘Beautiful Imperfection’ then her third ‘Bed of Stone’ in 2014.
