DOWNLOAD Asa – Fireon the mountain
Asa (pronounced “Asha”; born 1 September 1982) is a Nigerian French singer-songwriter, and recording artist. Her stage name “Asa” means “Hawk” in Yoruba.
Born Bukola Elemide, Asa was born in Paris, France to her Nigerian parents. Her family returned to live in Nigeria when she was two. Asa grew up in Alagbole, a boader town in Ogun state near Lagos, in the south-western part of Nigeria. Whenever Asa came home from school in Nigeria, she discovered musical acts like Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Raphael Saadiq, Lauryn Hill, Femi Kuti and Angélique Kidjo.
This was while she was in pursuit of educational excellence, and these musical acts are whose footprints she dreamed of following.
