In an interview with Entertainment News, the ‘One Who Never Comes’ crooner, admits to facing her fair share of challenges, and paying the price for her quest for fulfilment.

Despite the challenges, there are moments that compensate for the hard times. Asa, shares one of those touching moments.

About a decade after her debut album, titled after her, shot her to instant fame, Asa can say she has earned her spot in music.

In light of the unfortunate loss of entertainers in the music industry, Nomoreloss, Prince and Papa Wemba, Asa reminds all of the humanity of music icons and gives an insight into the struggles of successful artistes, who are in demand.

Living for the music, which she says is her religion, Asa is faced with the arduous task of connecting with her fans all over the world, from Istanbul to Belgium, France and Nigeria.

She revealed how she manages to refresh.

Born Bukola Elemide, in the early 80’s, Asa moved from her birthplace, Paris, France, to Lagos, Nigeria at the age of two, where she grew to become an artiste, influenced by music greats including Bob Marley, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Sade Adu, Onyeka Onwenu, Miriam Makeba and a host of others.

From her first album, Asa, a Cobhams Asuquo produced body of work which achieved critical acclaim in 2007, to ‘Bed Of Stones’, her 2015 album and several international tours in between, the singer’s songs evoke a myriad of emotions, from sombre meditation as experienced in ‘Bibanke’ to holy rage with ‘Satan Be Gone’.
