Asa had put out ‘Ocean’, one of the tracks on the album four days ago while ‘Mayana’ was released in December 2021.

The singer, whose real name is Bukola Elemide, came through with ‘Eyé Adaba’, her first single, in 2006.

She thereafter signed to Naive Records, a Paris-based independent record label.

Asa soon partnered with Cobhams Asuquo, Nigerian singer and record producer, who she had met through Janet Nwose, her manager.
