Yahoo Boys Emptied My Bank Account – Asa

Published

on

Queen of Soul and international music star, Bukola Elemide, popularly known as Asa has revealed how she was once duped by Yahoo boys.

Speaking in a recent interview with Cool FM’s program #TheRoadShow, she claimed that the Yahoo boys made a mess of her by emptying her bank account.

She said “Yahoo Boys emptied my bank account, but we won’t go into that,”
Asa has also identified with Naira Marley’s movement and she is no ashamed of being called a Marlian.

“I think I’m a Marlian. I love him, I think he is awesome,” she declared.
She further said she will vote for him if he ran for any Governorship election.

The Nigerian-French singer also disclosed that she had a rap career (or not) before the jazz and guitar but called it quits because she wasn’t good enough.

Asa is currently promoting ‘Lucid’, her latest work which is a follow-up to ‘Bed of Stone’ which was released in 2014. Early this year, she released two singles, ‘The Beginning,’ and ‘Good Thing.’ She released ‘Beautiful Imperfection’ in collaboration with a French composer, Nicolas Mollard.

Asa has won the prestigious French Constant in Award in 2008 after the release of several albums, including, “Asa’’, which charted radios across Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Her music influence grew from her father’s music collection built up for his work as a cinematographer, with records featuring American, Nigerian and African soul classics such as Mavin Gaye, Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Sunny Ade, Diana Ross, Miriam Makeba.

Meanwhile, controversial hip hop artist, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, on Wednesday, cautioned his fans, whom he calls ‘Marlians’, against destroying their future.

Published

on

Veteran actor of the popular Mount Zion Films, Evangelist Israel Ore- Adewole earnestly requests financial assistance from Nigerians and government at all levels. In the 90s, Ore- Adewole was so prominent in the Mike and Gloria Bamiloye led Mount Zion Faith drama Ministries as he featured in many of its popular home movies like Agbara Nla (Ultimate Power), Ayamatanga, Ide Esu, Captive of the Mighty, One Careless Night, Just A Little Sin, Apoti Eri and Blood On The Altar among others.

Unfortunately, Evangelist Israel Ore -Adewole urgently needs Nigerians help as the prolific Thespian and Film Producer’s health was challenged in 2015when he was diagnosed with Retrosternal Goiter in a London hospital when he was there to shoot a movie.

His account details are: Account Name: Ore-Adewole Israel Account Number: 0042002161 Bank: Access Bank Domiciliary Dollar Account Name: Great Light Film Productions Account Number: 2082002326 Bank: Eco Bank For further enquiries, please contact: 08037285467 Please no amount is too small to #get Israel Ore-Adewole back to action#.
