All about African Music
Episode details

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.
