Periodically, I scour the web and bombard my friends with requests for African Artists I haven’t heard of, be it musicians, fine artists, sculptors, fashion designers, etc. I love the Creative Arts and thoroughly enjoy sampling all the different flavors of Art on the continent.
A friend introduced me to Nigerian Musician Asa (pronounced Asha) about two years ago. I like the sound of her voice and the distinctly Nigerian melodies that flow from her songs. My long-time favorite has been So Beautiful from her self-titled 2008 album.
Trawling the web recently, I came across Be My Man, a wonderfully upbeat and fun song from her 2010 album Beautiful Imperfection. Enjoy the well shot music video below and check out her YouTube Channel. I couldn’t help but get on my feet and dance to the song.
