11 years after rising to stardom, Asa took to twitter yesterday 17th of January 2018, to set another fire on the mountain, as she made her intentions to do music for 80 years known to the public? Isn’t that unbelievably amazing?
I’ll keep listening to you even after then 😍

Following this statement, some fans cheered her on while others feel her soul pop music genre which is not currently big in Nigeria might fade out sooner before the set date of retirement.

Asa is so overrated.

In 2015, Asa introduced herself to the Nigerian Music Industry with “Eye Adaba” under the label Question Mark which she later had to ditch for reasons bothering on trust and moved on to pitch her tent with Naïve BMG international label company in 2006.
With this, Asa broke out from Nigeria to the world, put Nigeria and African music on the map, sold out concerts both home and abroad, and won the French prestigious Priz Costantin award alongside the Headies award back home.
Trend, we all know to be a direction, in which something is developing and changing, is also a major determinant of music acceptance, life span and the ultimate relevance of talents within the entertainment space.
Just like Fela exported Afro beat, Asa looks to be on course to achieving this 80 years music feat but can her soul pop music genre stand the storm of the constant change trend? Express your passion in the comment section
