Asa’s Concert was definitely a night to remember.

The event was held on Sunday, 1st of May, 2016 at Eko Hotels and Suites in Victoria Island, Lagos State.

The evening started out with performances from some exciting artists including MOBO Award winning Singer Rachel Kerr, Project Fame alumni, Isaac Geralds, Soul Fusion artist Falana, singer and pianist Kaliné and alternative soul singer Bez.

Asa opened her performance with the ballad “Awe” off her eponymous first album. The excited audience cheered endlessly and sang along, word for word, line after line. The response was deafening, and the excitement was palpable.

The response from the audience only got louder as Asa delivered intense performances of “Satan Be Gone” and “The One Who Never Comes”. At some point, she picked up a trumpet and displayed a mastery of the instrument that simply stunned the audience. As soon as the hugely popular “Fire On The Mountain” came on, the audience rose to its feet and sang out loud. “Bibanke” came next and the momentum continued.

One of the highlights of the night was when songwriter/music producer par excellence Cobhams Asuquo, who produced Asa’s debut album, joined her on stage and took over the piano. Together, they performed a cover of Beyonce’s “Halo”. The hall fell silent initially and then erupted in a frenzy as the duo displayed an amazing musical synergy.

Asa performed for two hours, keeping the energy levels in the hall high. There was singing, dancing, live instrumentation and magic all round. The audience sang until they lost their voices, and Asa simply went on.

    Still reliving the experience. Mad show. Asa is in a class of her own. Undoubtably one of the best shows i’d ever attended.

    Now this is a concert!! u know you have really gotten your money’s worth at the end. Energy was amazing. Totally entertained!! This is the standard. Not the USELESS Olamide, Davido, Wizkid and Co’s concerts, where they will show up 3hours late, mime over their songs for 30mins and then get off stage.

    Asa is just in a class of her own, wayyyyyyyyyyyyy ahead. Not the panpangolo we hear everywhere. Imagine someone performing LIVE not jumping to a recorded CD on stage. Keep waxing stronger Asa.
