There is apparent beauty in the titling of Asa’s latest single “The Beginning,” in that it marks a new beginning for her after about five years without a single release. She’s rising from musical oblivion into an exuberant space, and that’s good.
The beginning. By Asa’s admission, “The Beginning” is the first track in an upcoming studio project slated for release soon. If the track were to be the basis for judging what is on pipeline, then one may readily say Asa is well on her way to reclaiming her lost spot in Nigerian music.
Prior to her disappearance from the music scene, Asa, who also has some French blood, was one of the most visible, and one of the most loved, faces in Nigeria music. She had released “Bibanke,” “Jailer,” “Fire on the Mountain” and several other tracks and then nothing was heard of her again.
She is back and fans are only too glad to welcome her once again to Africa’s music universe. The wave of excitement sweeping through the industry over her return can better be imagined.
