Singer/songwriter Asa was born in Paris but spent her childhood and adolescence in Lagos, Nigeria.

She returned to Paris as an adult to test her talent on the French music scene. But it was in Nigeria where Asa first discovered the sounds that would influence the music she creates.

Tony Cox talks with Asa about her debut album.
