The best song for the occasion. There's fire on the mountain and this government seems not to be on the run to put it out. Just chilling like all is well.

Asa dropped a Bomb at the NNPC Summit & walked out without being arrested
By singing FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN before the president, she didn't abuse anyone, she didn't criticize anyone. She spoke direct to their consciences with a song. Legendary doings..PBP#ASUUStrike #ENDsars pic.twitter.com/ralYgJ32RV

One day the river will overflow
And there will be nowhere for us to go
And we will run, run
Wishing we had put out the fire!!!

I liked the fact that ASA chose to sing "Fire on the mountain" song for this NNPC relaunching. Lol

How did NNPC/APC gaffe and allow Asa come on stage to sing fire on the mountain, dressed in all black? In front of Buhari? 😂. Clueless people without intuition and sense of symbolism

Asa performing at the NNPC relaunch in the presence of Buhari & other APC elites is wr¤ng, she sh¤uld've turned down the offer; Our leaders are aware of their evildoings, a song can't change 'em & we can't be fighting against bad leaders, then dine with 'em when it's convenient.

Asa was invited to sing at the NNPC re-launch with Buhari in attendance. Guess the song she chose to sing? “There is fire on the mountain.” No one can convince me that this was not on purpose . I saw what you did there our lovely sister. God bless you for passing the message.

Seeing Asa perform 'Fire on the Mountain' at the State House 15 years after it was released and these lyrics still resonate:
"One day the river will overflow
And there'll be nowhere for us to go
And we will run, run
Wishing we had put out the fire"
