I Was Hungry, Mad And Asking Myself What I Was Doing Here; Asa On Her Struggles


The journey to success is never easy and that was the case of multi-talented singer, songwriter, and recording act, Asa.

The Jailer singer had revealed the struggles she encountered just to land her first audition in France.

In a just concluded concert which took place on Saturday night at EKO Hotel & Suites, Lagos, Asa granted an interview where she narrates her story.

In her words; When I first go to France, I used to sing and play my guitar at bars. One day, someone walked up to me and told me about a band that had just won a Grammy saying I could audition.

So I went there, got there on time (that is a problem for me) in the cold. I had just come from Lagos without warm clothes.

I got there and they told me to wait that they were rehearsing for their show and I waited 10 hours.

I was hungry, mad and was asking myself what are you doing here, why don’t you just leave. They had finished and they were packing up and someone remembered that I was outside.

I was invited to sing and I put all that emotion, all the sadness, pain and anger in the song. On the day of their show, they gave me two minutes to perform, I got signed and my first album was released.

If I had left that day, I don’t know what would have happened.
