BN Bytes: Asa performs at Victoires de La Musique 2011 – Rocks the Stage in Kemkemstudio – See the Photos & Video

Published

 on

Nigeria’s musical ambassador Asa is doing us proud as always!
She was nominated in the Best Female Act at the 2011 Victoires de La Musique (The event is an annual French award ceremony that recognizes the best musical artists of the year – it is one of the most prestigious music events in France – Basically, the French “Grammys”).

The event took place on the 1st of March 2011 at the Palais des Congres in Paris, France. Asa was nominated alongside Vanessa Paradis, Yael Naim and Coeur de Pirate. Although Asa did not win her category, she totally stole the show when she rocked the stage.

We totally adore Asa’s outfit, she rocked a beautiful yellow aso-oke jacket by Nigerian fashion design label, Kemkemstudio. She paired the jacket with black leather skinnies, a blue pillbox hat and  the perfect quirky touch – a pair of bedazzled cat eye glasses. Love it!

  14. Love Asa live

    March 3, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    Good part: Same old Asa, excellento!
    Bad part: Don’t like the leather trouser at all at all. Why the boobs roadshow? Doesn’t seem like her usual self.
    Conclusion: Still love her!

    Heard her sing live before, it was not boring…she was amazing and engaging…even cracked some jokes..Although it was a jazz club and not a concert so it was more intimate

    What a shame and waste, why in the world do artists and their managements change a winning formula- What was wrong with the style and music that made her a star in the first place (Jailer, Eye Aba ba, Bamidele )- and her last Album was also so disappointing

    • wunmi

      March 4, 2011 at 8:54 am

      u r joking right.. ceriously learn to appreciate, even if it is nt ur taste..

    • partyrider

      March 4, 2011 at 2:13 pm

      this the joke of the month.lemme laugh out loud..Buhahahahahahahaha
      Asa style has not changed.have u heard questions,bimpe me,baby gone,bimpe,why cant we..i can go on..cos the beats of “be my man” is faster than usually doesnt mean has style has changed..and u say BEAUTIFUL IMPERFECTION is disappointing?jokes right?
      just so u know,with every album comes a different story..and when i watched her when she was in d house of project fame,she spoke about why most of the songs in d 1st album were like dat,like 360 degrees,fire on the mountain..
      my dear friend,take a chill pill eh..and enjoy music at its purest of forms..

    • partyrider

      March 4, 2011 at 3:02 pm

      *doesnt mean HER style

    • Hmmmm

      March 4, 2011 at 5:15 pm

      EYIN AYE!! ELENU RAZOR!! YOU HAVE STARTED WITH YOUR B.S AGAIN! ASA IS ONE OF THE BEST ARTIST FROM NAIJA AND I MEAN THAT IN ALL GENRE OF MUSIC….BEAUTIFUL IMPERFECTION IS A LOVELY ALBUM, IT MIGHT NOT BE AS GOOD AS HER FIRST ALBUM, FIRST ALBUMS ARE ALWAYS THE BEST REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY ALBUM AN ARTIST PRODUCES. HER STYLE IS STILL THE SAME AS FAR AS AM CONCERNED, I THINK SHE IS JUST TRYING TO SPICE IT UP A LIL BIT BUT SHE STILL MAINTAINING HER STYLE. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT AS A ARTIST TO BE CREATIVE AND VERSATILE AND STILL DOING WHAT SHE DOES BEST….. THATS WHAT I THINK ASA IS DOING….GOD BLESS YOU ASA! X

    • Oladee9

      March 4, 2011 at 8:55 pm

      There is no disputing the fact that Asa is one of the most talented artists to come out of Africa and until recently one of my favourites, that said anybody who knows anything about music will know that Pop which this album is and the pervious one which was a combination of Yoruba folk, Nu soul and reggae are light years apart and as they say the facts don’t lie her last album produced 4 hit singles and the album was a hit all over Africa and got to number 15 in France while this one as barely registered on the charts, so who is the joke on? Music in its purest form don’t make me laugh!!

      Can you read? She was nominated for an award and the albums not even been out long. What part of nominated for an award is unsucesful in your world?

      Mr Correction what he said could pass for pidgin english..so relax with ur dictionary.

    • correction

      March 6, 2011 at 7:46 pm

      @partyrider wannabe: Sounds like your type of english….even in Pidgin, its wrong! Haba! Not everything is acceptable in pidgin! 🙂

    • Tosin

      April 4, 2011 at 8:58 pm

      The phrase “See voice” is ‘colloquial pidgin’ if you will.
      “Hear voice” would not carry the same meaning and even if the listener understood your meaning, it wouldn’t carry the same weight as “SEE VOICE” . Which means in essesce: “Oh my goodness, that voice is fantastic”

      You need to brush up on your pidgin my friend 😀 lol

    and i beleive those are ITUEN BASI bangles on Asa’s hands…..any awards for spottin em?! *wink wink*

  45. Eloho

    March 24, 2011 at 1:47 pm

    i love ASA and will always do; mostly because of her lyrics. Most artistes today ignore lyrical depths for danceable rhythm and popularity (‘lets just sing anything’ attitude). Artistes like Timi Dakolo, Bez, Ecetera still try to maintain good lyrics. Thumbs up dear and i love ur jacket and bangles!

    April 4, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    Oh my days!
    Asa is all grown up!!
