My parents’ height made me have affection for tall men –Asa

International singer and songwriter, Bukola Elemide , popularly known as Asa, has revealed her affection for tall men .

The ‘ Femi mo ’ crooner, in an interview with Ndani TV , stated that she was not happy that her parents were short .

She said , “I am crazy for tall guys . They could be dark .

If you are dark , be very dark .

Then, it takes me time to think , ‘ Does he have a brain?’

If my future man is short , if I ever get married , I won ’ t complain .

I do hope he is not short , because my parents were short and I wasn’ t happy about that. ”

Asa also noted that when she started her music career , she was wary of opinions about her voice .

The Europe – based singer said , “ I just never trusted people ; maybe it was (because ) my father told me all the time that ‘ you can ’ t trust people ’ .

I think people just didn’ t get me . When I started performing publicly , I didn’ t come out as a singer. I came out as a dancer .

That thing was inside me saying , ‘ Why is your voice like this ?

Why do you sound like this ?

Why do you walk like this ?

Who do you think you are’?

So , I just went into my world and performed to an imaginary audience . When my first album came out, I did not expect it was going to be that big .

I was shy and slightly embarrassed .

I thought I was not ready and still needed to do more work . ”

Speaking on the impact of the COVID – 19 lockdown on her career and her inability to perform at concerts , she added , “ I know we will never forget this year .

I think every day of my life has always been a lockdown .

I am usually almost in isolation all the time .

This time , it wasn’ t very hard for me because I have lived this (way) every day of my life .

I actually enjoy and see what actual silence means.

I spent the time writing a lot and working with producers. ”

Asa also stated that patriarchy made it hard for women to succeed in the Nigerian music industry .

She said , “I am glad that more ladies are coming out and doing really awesome work .


Yemi Alade , Tiwa Savage , Simi , Teni , Niniola , Tems and others are awesome .

Patriarchy makes it hard for women .

We need more women and when we have more women , they would be more encouraged . ”
