Why I Wear Baggy Clothes – Asa Shares How She Rose To Her Career’s Peak Despite Gender Bias

Multi-award-winning singer, Bukola Elemide, otherwise known as Asa, says she had to convince her family that she rose to the top of her career by sheer dint of hard work because of the perception held by many that female artistes, who rise to the top of their careers must have slept around.

Speaking with CNN’s Zain Asher at the Access Bank International Women’s Day conference in Lagos, she said:

“In Paris, I don’t think about gender. (Rather), I have to fight being from Nigeria. Gender is not a problem. In Nigeria, I have to fight (for my) gender.”

The sensational artiste, who recently released her fifth album titled V, also noted that her gender had a profound effect on her behaviour in the early days of her career.

She said:

“I was very aware of my femininity, so when I went into studios, I usually wore baggy clothing because I did not want to accentuate the fact that I was female. I did not want to bring attention to myself; I just wanted to do my job.”

kkkkkkk

According to Asa, those (fashion) choices led men to question her sexuality.

“Some men would comment, ‘Are you even a woman? What’s wrong with you’?

People think if one is a female artiste, one is sleeping around, so I had to prove that to family.”

She also maintained that women (in the industry) still do not get equal opportunities (with their male colleagues).

She added:

“I want to see women selling whiskey and being ambassadors for such brands. I do enjoy an occasional whiskey, so why shouldn’t I be a brand ambassador for that? Why should it always be males? Women enjoy those things (too).

(However), I think we can find a balance. Nobody is saying with the new wave of feminism, (women) have to be on top. I am just saying we could be equal and respect one another.”

Asa also stated that she struggled with her parents’ attitude to her upbringing, particularly her disciplinarian father.

Asa said:

“It was a bootcamp at home. He made us eat beans for a year, and insisted on the home help putting weevils (on), sprinkling them as protein.”

She also stated that she was constantly groomed to be a wife from when she was a child.

She said:

“One has to learn how to cook for one’s husband. One has to be sweet for one’s husband, and I was like, ‘Am I going to do all this for one person? And I don’t even know who the person is.”

I Carry My Studio Equipment Everywhere I Go – Rema

Nigerian musician Rema has disclosed he is always with his music studio anywhere he goes. He stated that he has a mobile studio in his car booth, and whenever he’s not using his personal car, he has his recording equipment in his backpack.

Rema, real name Divine Ikubor, made this revelation during a chat on Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio. He narrated how he spends his time, saying; “I am just a guy that is always stuck in the studio.

I don’t really have much to do if I am not out there performing. If I am not out performing or with family, I would be in the studio.

“I have studio equipment in my car boot everywhere I go. I (always) drive with a studio. If I am travelling, I would have a speaker, laptop and microphone in my bag.

Sometimes, I could be out and might not get home. I could also feel like staying at my friend’s place, or just go to the studio, hotel or wherever I find myself. I always have my equipment in my car.”

“I am really grateful that these artistes blessed me with their vocals, and they actually all enjoyed being on my record. I would not do anything that is forced.

They actually did enjoy the record. They actually kept playing it for their friends. We are all excited about the record and that’s how it is supposed to be.”

Rema said further that it is very easy for him to sing and believes that his sound is fated to go far and wide. “I feel like my sound is destined to unlock territories.

I have been blessed with the gift of sound, and it is very easy for me (to do). When I walk into the studio, I am pretty sure I would leave with a banger (hit).

That is why the first word I say before I ‘attack’ a beat is ‘another banger’. I don’t even care however the song goes, I just say it and go for it.

“I did not beg to be here. I feel like I’m supposed to be here and I am meant to cause the shift of sound and to evolve the afrobeat movement in a way.

I am just playing my role; I’m not overthinking it. I am just going with the flow and everything is happening organically. I am grateful for that.”
