So over the weekend, everyone got to know Asa‘s ‘big secret’ after Funmi Iyanda released a two year old interview of theirs: unknown to many, she was a virgin until she was 28 years old.
Although not very surprising: Asa is one of the most well-known musicians to come out of Nigeria yet very little is known about her private life. One does not know which one is more surprising that Asa is having sex or that she was that age when she did it.
We all know Asa as one who uses her music to tell personal stories – from Bibanke on her first album to Dreamer Girl on her second and Moving On on the third- but there’s this juicy part that escaped everybody. And now that she’s revealed it; let’s narrow down to the moment it happened.
Let’s take our memories back to Be My Man on her Beautiful Imperfection album and listen closely. She said it clearly that she was ready to partake of the forbidden fruit
Check out the lyrics of the song as see if you didn’t miss it:
“My mama used to tell me girl it ain’t that cool to see a man you love
And start to act the fool; tell me what’s a girl in love supposed to do
Tonight, I’m breaking mama’s rule…”
It’s obvious now, isn’t it? Now guess what year the song was released? 2010.
Asa was 28 in 2010.
Now the big question we want answers to is, who was this guy that Asa first had sex with…?
Watch ‘Be My Man’ below…
