However, one highlight of the night was when a smitten fan took the bold step to propose to the singer on stage. Aṣa while performing her last song for the night ‘Bamidele’ teased the audience with a freestyle melody ‘I like you Aṣa, I want you Aṣa, but you won’t marry me.’ Taking a cue from her lyrics, the young man climbed the stage, went down on one knee and asked Aṣa to marry him.
