Please who has heard Asa's latest singles 'Fire on the Mountain' and 'Fimisile'? Tell me that you did not think that was Corrine-Bailey Rae of somebody. When I heard Fire on the Mountain I was like ....HUH? Is that a Nigerian? I had to call the radio station to ask who it was because I missed the introduction. I wish I did not have technical handicaps otherwise I would download the songs for you to listen to. Is there an Asa myspace page out there? Please somebody send the link because I have searched for it and can't find it. Anyways, go out and buy Asa's album/single or ask your friends to send you a copy. Ya'll know if Addy likes something then it means that stuff is definitely HOT. I can just picture a video for the song already not just only on MTV base o...but MTV mainstream...BET etc. Ya'll in the diaspora need to seriously get her album and send it to all your local radio station DJ's. I have faith in that song and this musician and if there's anything I can do to help, I think I will and ya'll should too. So go and buy... don't burn or download only... go by and mail them out.
