Hey family, we’re introducing the Afrobeats Intelligence Podcast! After two years of pushing the best writing on African music, we’re extending our medium into audio! This isn’t a pivot. Afrobeats Intelligence will always be a home for my writing on African music. But we have a chance here to be more. And I’m glad I can have you come with me. Thank you!
In our debut episode, I visit Asa's home in Lagos, where we explore her return to the city. She’s riding Okada, and creating a new home-made album that pushes her into pop and the Afrobeats movement.
We talk about her love for the city, her flight from it earlier, achieving success, and making a return home.
