Asa is regarded as Nigeria’s queen of alternative music. She has earned both local and international acclaim, especially in Europe, where she was born.
It was obvious Asa would become a superstar right from the onset of her career. She broke through in 2007 following the release of her debut studio album, a self-titled 10-track project that earned her plaudits beyond the borders of Africa; in Europe and Asia.
Asa won the prestigious French Constantin Award in 2008 when she was voted best fresh talent of 10 singers or groups by a jury of 19 music-industry experts in Paris.
She continued growing and expanding her catalogue and fan base, embarking on a world tour from 2015 to 2017.
Asa, given her style of music, has also featured in the score of several Hollywood and French movies and TV shows including Zafara, and the TV series Event.
