Nigeria: Asa Debuts in Ghana Today

Renowned world music Nigerian singer, Asa will perform in Ghana for the first time at the 'Miss Ghana' 2012 finale today. The 'Jailer' songbird in spite of having several hit songs in Ghana has never staged a public performance in Ghana since her career took off.

'Exclusive Events', Ghana, organizers of the pageant made the announcement, adding that the singer will be accompanied by a team of performers who will stage what is expected to be a historic show.

A multiple award-winning act, Asa's style of music fuses pop, R&B, funk, neo-soul and reggae in a flawless fashion, all delivered in both English and Yoruba. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Marvin Gaye, Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey, her music usually features a blend of impeccable percussion, funky Hammond organ and reggae infused bass.

Some of her popular songs in Ghana over the past few years have included 'Jailer', 'Be my Man', 'No One Knows', and 'Imperfect Me' amongst a tall rich list. The 'Miss Ghana' finals will be the first time she will be mounting a stage in Ghana.

Expectations are high, especially among her large Ghanaian fan base, some of who have been yearning for a day to see her perform on Ghanaian soil.
