Nigerian singer Asa first made a major splash on the international music scene three years ago with the release of her self-titled album.
Now her latest album, Beautiful Imperfection, has been making an equally big impact across Africa and beyond.
She has been wowing crowds with her style which has now developed into pure Afro pop. The singer did an exclusive performance at Bush House, the home of BBC World Service.
