In anticipation of soul singer Asa’s highly anticipated album ‘Lucid’, she today dropped a song off the upcoming album.

From our first listen, we are not disappointed by the track titled ‘My Dear.’ It is a typical Asa invention, creating a rush of emotions, as we are carried along with the singers imagery of the pain of love lost.

Alongside the single, she dropped a live session video of the song and it just took our breathe away.

We can’t wait for the album ‘Lucid’ which is scheduled to hit the stores on 11th of October.

Until then, let’s just enjoy the single ‘My Dear’ for the remaining 14 days.

Photo-researcher, Helen Gebregiorgis explores Lagos and it’s resilient people.

What is your Lagos story of Resilience?

This city hardens you.

It gives you a story. One that is reminiscent of harsh words and surmounting daily hurdles.
It is how it trains you.
Creating resilience in you; the inate ability to look challenges in the eye and in the lingo of the street tell it, ‘You no reach.’

Eritrean American photographer and researcher, Helen Gebregiorgis, understand this phenomenon all too well and she tells it all in her new photo book on the human condition.

The photo book titled ‘Budding Lagos’ is based on a project she completed in 2017.
The project was inspired by the
Lagos@50 celebrations and took the angle of explicitly focusing on everyday Lagosians contributing to Lagos’s development.

The book launch of ‘Budding Lagos’ will take place on
Sunday, September 29, 2019, at the Gallery, in Freedom Park, alongside a discourse led by high-performing professionals as they share their stories of ‘Resilience’, living in the Metropolis.
