Music diva, Asa, releases fifth album
Nigerian music diva, Bukola Elemide, popularly known as Asa, has finally delivered her highly-anticipated fifth studio album, titled V.
The award-winning pop-jazz songstress released the 10-track body of work on Friday as earlier announced.
V, which was produced by Priimebeatz, includes collaborative tracks with Wizkid, Amarae, and The Cavemen.
The project also includes earlier released tracks like Mayana and Ocean.
In 2004, Asa met her manager Janet Nwose who introduced her to Cobhams, the producer of her first album Asa.
Aṣa returned to France at the age of 20 to study at the IMFP school of Jazz music, where she was told by teachers that she should go ahead and become a recording artist because she was ready and needed no schooling.
Back in Nigeria, her first single, Eyé Adaba was beginning to get airplay. Aṣa soon signed to Naïve Records.
The release of her debut album saw Aṣa charting radios across Europe, Asia, and Africa.
She went on to win 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 specialists in Paris.
Her second album, Beautiful Imperfection, in collaboration with Nicolas Mollard, was released in October 2010.
Asa’s third studio album, Bed of Stone, was thereafter put out in August 2014 as she went on a world tour from 2015 to 2017.
In 2019, she released Lucid, her fourth album. Asa is a songwriter and one of Nigeria’s most exposed singers.
