I’m a Marlian – Asa
By Dipo Omoware
You definitely didn’t expect this but Asa is a Marlian. The soft-spoken musician revealed on 96.9 CoolFM’s Roadshow she loves Nigerian rapper Naira Marley and consider herself a fan.
The Nigerian-French singer spoke with OAPs Kaylah and N6 earlier today and spilled a lot on her life, music and her love and stint rap music.
“I started as a rapper, but I know I sucked so I humbled myself and stuck to where God really put me.” she said.
Speaking more on her love for rap music, the Jailer singer said “I love rap music, you know I listen to Drake, I just started listening to 2chainz, I think, I like really tall men but he’s not bad, I can manage,” she quipped.
“I like TI,” she continued, “I like what he’s done for his community, I live G-Eazy and Cardi B, I love Cardi B, she’s good.”
The singer who was promoting her recently released 4th studio album, Lucid, said she hoped the police would make her as “popular as Naira Marley”
“Let them take me,” she said, responding to N6’s joke that he would burn the country if the police touched her. “Perhaps I will be as popular as Naira Marley. At this point Kaylah asked if she was a Marlian to which she replied “I think I am, I love him and I think he’s awesome.”
She however frowned on the activities of internet fraudsters and disclosed she once had her account emptied by fraudsters.
“Those guys (internet fraudsters) they touched my bank account, they emptied it. Let’s not go there, let’s just stick to the song, sebo’mo Jesu niwo” she added, a reference from Naira Marley’s Tesumole.
