Paris-born, Nigerian singer-songwriter and multi-platinum selling recording artist Asa, fuses pop, afrobeat, soul and R&B, all built to compliment her unique smoky voice. She released her debut album in 2008 to critical acclaim and has since released three studio albums and two live albums.
As the world familiarizes itself with Nigeria’s booming afro-fusion hip-hop, afrobeat, dancehall, pop hybrid, the other side of the country’s sounds may seem like uncharted territory, Asa has been present and consistent in her singular, distinct voice that cuts through the noise.
Her soon to be released fifth album, was recorded after the lockdown put a stop to her 42 city LUCID tour and forced Asa to leave her Paris base for home in Lagos, a welcomed solitude, which resulted in beautiful encounters and an album full of brightness, cheekiness, heartfelt emotions and features for the first time ever.
The new song “Mayana” is to whet her fans’ appetite before the real deal comes in 2022. Asa showcase her Afro-fusion game and beautiful vocals on this impressive single.
‘We will live here together
You and me my forever
Ayai yayai Ayai ya.
Plenty fish and Banana
I will be you mayana
Ayai Ayai Ayai ya‘
