Today is @asaasika’s birthday! Fell in love with him 10 years ago, I still love him today and always will
Here are some of the photos DJ Cuppy shared;
Asa Asika was born on August 20th, 1990. He is the oldest of three kids in his family. When the boy was only seven years old, he lost his mother, so he had to grow up and adjust to adulthood very quickly. He went to White Sand School in Lekki, Lagos State, and graduated in 2008. He dropped out of college, stating that he supports education and thinks everyone needs to get a certain level of it, but the higher education is not for him. In his opinion, some people with Master’s degrees are struggling to find a job, while some who have not received full education are maintaining great business.
His family members are quite influential, and because of them, he has been involved in show business since he was young. His cousin is a well-known musician Naeto C, and his uncle is Obi Asika, who is the CEO of Storm 360. Asa began working at shows, thanks to this company. He was only sixteen when his career kicked off. He worked with such famous people as Ikechukwu, ELDee, Sasha P, and of course, his cousin Naeto C. He was also involved in the production of such shows as Homecoming with MTN and “The Love of Music” Samsung concert. Aside that, he contributed to the promotion and success of Rehab club in Lagos. Thanks to him, the venue has become one of the most visited ones in the city.
The paths of Asa and Davido first crossed many years ago. Asa started managing Davido’s music career and got acquainted with his team. When he was asked about his work with Davido, Asa confessed that the job was really demanding, and sometimes all that went wrong was blamed on him, but regardless it was a lot of fun.
The additional pressure is his young age – when he first began working with Davido, he was only 20 years old. Asa was around during Davido’s breakthrough hit “Dami Duro”. It was the single that brought him fame and acknowledgement.
