ThrowBack: Asa – Fire On 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.

We decided to do it the Asa way this Thursday on our ThrowBack Thursday. Fire on the Mountain by Asa is a soul capturing tune with unique sound.

Hope you can relate to it below! Enjoy and Thank Us Later!…
