RV NEWS: Asa In Alleged Paternity Scandal!!

The muckrakers are at it again. RV has gathered that gifted soul singer, Bukola Elemide, popularly known as Asa [ It means '' Hawk'' in the West African language called Yoruba ] is in the midst of another alleged scandal. This time it has to do with who her real father is. Now, the official photographs of Asa's parents have not been released to the public and music lovers, since she burst onto the music scene with her self titled album '' Asa ''. However, there has been unconfirmed reports that Bukola Elemide's father is Mr Wale Akinboboye, the man who runs the lagos leisure outfit, La campaigne Tropicana.

It is said that Mr Akinboboye has refused to identify with Asa, and makes efforts to stop enquiries about who the artist's true father is. RV gathered that Asa was tutored at a stage in her career by Yinka Davies, who was a member of the Atunda Troupe, a theatrical business owned by Mr Akinboboye. There is a rumour that Mr Akinboboye told Davies to train Asa musically. RV is not sure if this rumour holds water because it is widely known that Bukola trained in Peter King's Music School in Badagry, Lagos, for a year.

Asa's Paternity issue is coming to light after she was accused of being a lesbian by a Lagos based Magazine late last year. News of The People published a story titled '' Lesbianism trails Asa and Manager ''. The publishers of the Magazine claimed that Asa and her Manager, Janet Nwose, were in a lesbian relationship. The story angered the duo and they sued the Magazine for defamation and libel at the Lagos High Court. The pair asked for a 700 Million Naira compensation and were bitter that the story portrayed Asa negatively to her fans. Asa was born in Paris, France, in 1982. She returned to Nigeria at age two and grew up in Jos, Plateau State. She returned to Lagos when she was 18 years old. Her music career kicked off a few years later.
