POWER Interview: Cobhams Asuquo – ‘I Don’t Know that Any Man has the Wisdom to Marry Right’


I was raised in Lagos and until I was about 10, I believed I was of Yoruba heritage. Then, I found out I was from Calabar or what is now known as Akwa-Ibom. I was disappointed! I read, wrote, and spoke Yoruba, at the time, better than many Yoruba folks I knew. How could it be. LOL! I got over the confused heritage once I got to learn and understand the Akwa-Ibom culture a bit more. I understood I was truly a member of the Kalabari people i.e. the Calabars/Akwa-Ibomites. I don’t know if Cobhams Asuquo is Calabar or Akwa-Ibom. It really does not make a difference to me. Shout out to him and all other Calabar/Akwa-Ibomites in the fashion and entertainment field making big moves: Ini Edo, Emem Isong, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Mbong Amata, Fred Amata, Basi Ituen and so many more. Lots of Calabars/Akwa-Iboms in media here in the diaspora. Impressed. Enjoy the interview below of Cobhams Asuquo as he discusses his music career with Factory 78. He mentioned he was feeling Zamajobe. Ladybrille did an exclusive interview way back in the day with Zamajobe. She is really good.

Asuquo is so brilliant. Great, great, great interview. Asuquo interviews well, Adesope has gotten better with his transitions. LOL! when he said Asuquo’s pot belly is definitely coming out. Asuquo, I feel, is someone I can totally sit and jive with endlessly and not get tired. He dropped some great wisdom from his music career to his woman. Amazing! Mad respect!

“The award winning music producer Cobhams Asuquo stopped over in the UK for the showstopping concert held by Aaron T Aaron and friends in London. Factory78tv’s Adesope spoke candidly to Cobhams about his work with numerous artistes from the Afrobeat industry,which artistes he enjoys listening to , not letting his visual impairments hold him back and how marriage has positively affected his life. Watch the talented and charming music producer right here on Factory78tv.”
