If you weren’t(specifically London folks)at Union Chapel on Thursday 2nd October 2014 then you seriously missed out on one of the best shows of the year.
Internationally acclaimed Nigerian musician, Asa, sang her heart out in Union Chapel for an extremely rare London concert last night. For a show that was long overdue it was far from disappointing. Hitting the stage at 8:45pm on the dot wearing a beautiful dazzling playsuit, her signature dreads cut in a flattering bob style and funky fresh glasses, Asa looked stunning.
Starting with her now classic hit single “Fire on the Mountain”, Asa took the crowd on an emotional roller coaster that had everyone clapping, singing and dancing from beginning to end. She performed her hits from “Bibanke”, to “So Beautiful”, “Be My Man” and “Bamidele”.
With her amazing band to back her up, Asa gave the crowd what they had been longing for, nothing but real music. The show was no where near over when Asa was hailed with a standing ovation and high pitches cheers from the crowd.
This show was not lacking anything in any form or fashion. At an early point during the show Asa took off her shoes so that she could be free to express her music to her adoring fans. Asa even proved herself to be an instrumentalist of sorts as she pulled out a trumpet during the show to play. The show was nothing short of epic.
If you’re a real music fan and you missed this show, you missed a show of a lifetime. Only God knows when Asa will be back to grace a London stage. Check out all the pictures below.
