Asa, recognized for her reserved demeanor, has carved a niche for herself as one of Nigeria’s premier songwriters, infusing her music with notable African Folk elements.
She first gained prominence as a breakout star with her eponymous debut album ‘Asa (Asha),’ a work that secured her the Headies Album of the Year Prize.
In 2022, she delighted fans with the launch of her album ‘V,’ in which she uncommonly delved into Afrobeats. The album featured a collaboration with Wizkid, but unfortunately, it has been removed from streaming platforms due to copyright infringements
Aṣa was born in Paris to Nigerian parents who were working and studying cinematography in France. Her family returned to live in Nigeria when she was two years old. Her parents hail from Itoku, Abeokuta South local government area, Ogun State, Nigeria. Aṣa grew up in Lagos city, in the south-western part of Nigeria, and 18 years later, returned to Paris, where her life as an artist took off.
