BN Music Premiere: Omawumi – If You Ask Me (Na Who I Go Ask)

Omawumi‘s debut album “Wonder Woman” made a major impact on the music charts. The album spurred hits including “Today Na Today” and “In The Music”. Omawumi was also recognized by music critics and fans via various awards including the Hip Hop World Awards and the Nigerian Entertainment Awards.

Over the last year, Omawumi has been hard at work in the studio crafting her sophomore album. Omawumi is hoping to “redefine” her sound and make an even bigger impact with this new album.

Our first taste of this new sound is “If You Ask Me (Na Who I Go Ask)“. A soulful yet socially conscious track which tells the story of an abused child.
According to details released by Omawumi’s team, “This song, which deals with child sexual abuse and takes a musical journey through that painful experience, also complements Omawumi’s work as an Ambassador for Project Alert, which advocates on issues of sexual abuse and reproductive health.

The track is produced by Cobhams Asuquo.
The instrumentation and vocals on this track are stellar and as always, we support music that goes beyond entertainment and raises awareness on major issues in our society.

    this gal should have won that MAMA’s female act of the year

  • iREAD January 10, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    I love this song. It is one of those playful beats that make you think of summer, cruising with the roof down et al which is quite contradictory to the message of the song. I think it might be a bit too playful for message…

    That said, I love this girl. Razzness and all lol.

  • anyvic January 10, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    love, love, love it

  • Brittle Paper January 10, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    This is what I call upping the ante. Good job. I love the Amy winehouse feel.

    • Miss Face January 23, 2011 at 11:15 pm

      Agreed! dont really like this chick but cant deny that she’s got strong vocals and music is world-class standard + cobhams’ magic touch? good job rather great job. Here’s to omawunmi, this bad gal thing u got going on doesnt suit u one bit, better clean up ur act cos alot of young girls are lookn up to u, its not all about the music dear. my 2 cents sha!

  • Lightweightboy January 10, 2011 at 8:20 pm

  • monalisa January 10, 2011 at 11:18 pm

    I love this song.

    Omawumi is the best female artiste/Vocalist in Nigeria. No contest and this song proves it. Damn! She pieces the song.

  • alfie January 11, 2011 at 3:40 am

  • jane January 11, 2011 at 9:32 am

    she is too good,she has made it and left her other colleague behind from MTN PROJECT FAME

  • notaplayahater January 11, 2011 at 10:52 am

    @ jane- not project fame…. idols west africa

  • Kémi Penélopê January 11, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    With music becoming like *pure water* business where everyone just want to sing because ‘everyone & their mama’ does it, it always good when one steps out the bunch…I believe that’s what Omawumi has done.
    If I write that, “It’s alright”, then that na one na big lie I don yarn for there…
    I LOVE IT one time…two times…and even raise it to be infinity power…can’t wait listen to more…

    *Meanwhile as I dey dance to dis muzak, I have to remember the message in the song…that na one *strong* matter…

  • Ngozi January 11, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    just like asha’s be my man…..good old school beat anyways

  • Dee Gurl January 11, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Not bad…..not bad at all!

  • who’s that girl? January 11, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    I love this song. It is one of those playful beats that make you think of summer, cruising with the roof down et al which is quite contradictory to the message of the song. I think it might be a bit too playful for message…That said, I love this girl. Razzness and all lol.

    I totally agree with you, really good song but too playful for the message.

  • lisa January 11, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    I am actually consoled by “some” of our standup and upcoming artist. They are showing a very strong global rate performance that can hold its own anywhere in the world. What is currently larking are real professioners that can manage these lads image in that scale. We need to up our game here and snack the bone out of the jaw of the guys in the west.

  • presy August 29, 2011 at 1:46 pm
