Bukola Elemide

Her debut album, Asa, arrived on Naïve Records in 2007, with its lead single, "Fire on the Mountain," receiving airplay on radio stations throughout Europe. Though her songs feature mainly English lyrics, she also sings in Yoruba, a West African language widely spoken in Nigeria. The album was warmly received in France, winning her the Prix Constantin in 2008 and charting in the Top 20. She issued Live in Paris in 2009 before the proper follow-up, 2010's Beautiful Imperfection, which reached number 14 in France and saw her nominated for a Victoires de la Musique award for Female Artist of the Year. Working for a third time with producer Benjamin Constant, Asa's next studio album, Bed of Stone, arrived in 2014. It peaked at number 38 in France, and also charted in Switzerland.
