Today we crown Asa as our Woman Crush Wednesday!

The Soul/Soft Rock singer has no doubt attained so many successes than any other female artist in Nigeria.

Her genre of music was hardly acceptable in her home country but by the time she was ready for the stage, her own people welcomed her with opened arms, praises of pride and pleas to stay even longer.

She doesn't sell her art as a sex symbol but she's been able to endear herself into the hearts of music lovers with just her talent.

Her rhythm, her voice, her skills on the guitar makes her the complete package.

Asa is truly our soul queen.
