Shortly after the release of Asa‘s Bed of Stone album in 2015, Wizkid announced his desire to collaborate with Asa. A section of music fans laughed it off because according to them, ‘Wizkid and Asa could not match because of the obvious difference in their sounds.’ Others bluntly insisted that Wizkid is not on Asa’s level adding that the Star Boy would ruin her soulful sound.
Two years later, a never before seen interview of Asa with Funmi Iyanda has surfaced and opposed to popular opinion, Asa is interested in working with the Star boy.
‘He’s a sweet guy and it was sweet of him to say that. I felt bad, I felt ‘oh my God’ I hope he doesn’t feel bad’, I hope he doesn’t think I incited it or I wouldn’t want to work with him, I’ll really like to work with him. I think he’s interesting, I think it’ll be a nice collaboration if we do it. I’ll love to see Wizkid in another context but being himself, we’ll make something really nice!’ – She disclosed
Asa is Nigerians biggest Afro-soul singer and in over a decade of her reign, she has worked with a handful of Nigerian artistes.
Wizkid has in the past two years risen to global acclaim and it would be such a delight to see Nigeria’s biggest pop artiste – Wizkid and Nigeria’s biggest Soul singer – Asa hop in the studio and make magic for the world.
