Asa gained international renown with the hit single Fire on the mountain in 2007. That “angry” young woman still refuses to sit down and keep quiet but she’s matured. She talks to RFI about making her latest, third album, Bed of Stone, the joys of learning to ride a motorbike and why she’s feels so close to Nigeria’s kidnapped schoolgirls.
