A shows topping performance
If you weren’t 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 cat eye 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 nowhere 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 stage in the show Asa took off her shoes so that she could right down to business…she wasn’t playing! In further proof that she truly is a genius of sorts, not only did she play her favourite instrument the guitar, she showed us she was just as good at playing a trumpet as she was with the guitar. 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.
We’ll be wasting no time snapping out tickets when next this young lady is in town.
