      Aww…. This woman can never do wrong in my face. I love Asa so much. BTW, the “Eyo” she sings about in the song, in Yoruba means “REJOICE”

    Dear Asha, I love you and your songs very much but please cover up your chest. thanks in advance 🙂

    • Seriously

      Yeah, cleavage whether full of mammary/memory gland or flat is not appealing in general. I cringe when I see Lupita or cossy showing off their chest.

      Body shaming is not good, she clearly loves herself like that.Can she live?

    I love it!!!!! And they got actors not people peeking at the camera wondering what is going on. And she can wear whatsoever she chooses to wear, as shown in the video

    Hmmm, Asa has started dressing risque
    Loooove the orange frames
    The song is very liberating. Like you listen to it and spread your hands while singing along
    New stylist?
    It’s like the same thing is happening to Asa and Janelle Monae in the style department.
    Love it.
    Long live Asa
    Well done Meji Alabi

    Our Nigeria, used to be like this when most of us were young…. playing and cheering. Now its insecurity, spite and envy that has deprived these young little ones now from having a memorable childhood.How i miss those days. Big ups ASA, you represent us well.

    the video was dull…. After listening to this particular song over, i was hoping to see the Lagos Festival (Eyo) While the masquerades dance and share the cultural value of the song to the world.

    Hoped for much more from the 2 videos( this and Satan be gone : (

      Perhaps if you write nicely to her proposing to direct her next video she would give you creative license to do as you please with her next video

      that is why it a good video because they didnt go local like everyone those. it unique. a good video should leave you asking for more. simplicity and uniqueness gives the message shes passing across. THE OLD DAYS OF LAGOS when children could play around. how many kids play with sand this days? their parent will either snap or slap any part of their body. children now want iphone. its all good.

    Really Beautiful!!!!
    Please, I’m not Nigerian, can anybody tell me what that person in white at the very end of the video means? Is it something traditional or anything of that sort? Thank you!!!

      The word “Eyo” refers to the costumed dancers, known as the masquerades that come out during the Eyo (name of the song) festival. The Eyo festival is a Yoruba (tribe in Nigeria) festival unique to Lagos, Nigeria. The person you see at the end of the video is dressed exactly as an Eyo dancer.

      that the EYO masquerade shes singing about. it significant to be celebrated in Lagos only. i really dont know their impact but it a festival celebrated in lagos. i have watched it half of my life believe me it better watching from afar than being next to them. it fun from far.

      @Samado, the person in white is a masquerade known as eyo. Happy reading.

    At the end of the video: the girl in white dragging the little boy who was going ahead of the other kids was classic! I LOL’d. Glad it was kept in the video. Oh Asa and her blue dress and her orange frames – makes me smile. I enjoy Asa 🙂

    Bravo! Thanks Asa for blessing us with your talent and helping me wash off the feeling I was going to be retarded after watching Tonto’s video.

    Asa God bless you and kontinu to increase your talent………..
    @ Eve i agree with you, after watching Tonto’s video i almost went for reconstructive surgery because i had a frown all day.
    Asa is so far the best…..she is in a league of her own.
    broda donjazzy, praiz and inyanya come and learn from her……i honestly thought u three would have been giving us music that touch our souls nt the crap of sisi, gift and all the booty, haters and spending money songs u three always dish out.
    Asa, God bless your hustle.

    Eyo = Lagos Masquerade
    Eyo = Rejoice

    For this song, Asa meant Rejoice or Be glad. Sorry for not seeing masquerade.

    So someone just pointed out the entire thing was shot on green screen. One can even see the reflection in her glasses in the first scene…..just curious if this was done on purpose to make her seem “other worldly” or she couldn’t make it to naija to shoot…just curious o! I still luv u babe! Keep slaying!
