Asa’s self titled debut album holds a special place in the hearts of many African music lovers. She was the first of a generation of contemporary singer-songwriters to bridge the gap between Nigerian folk tales and contemporary pop music. Many Nigerian singer/songwriters, emboldened by Asa’s success, have also launched alternative careers, including Sharon who visits the Clout Africa photo studio to to pay homage by delivering her interesting take on Asa’s 2007 hit single “Awe”.
Vocal flourishes, a unique sound and a unique point of view. Sharon’s cover is memorable for all the right reasons.
