Asige, who blew up after the Sauti Sol hit song Extravaganza, was nominated to the Senate to represent persons living with disability.
She had been signed to Sol Generation but parted ways with the management in 2019, barely 10 months into her stint.
“It’s not a very long story, back in November (2019) they told me they wanted me to leave, they don’t want me to be in the group anymore so I left. That’s literally the beginning and the end of the story,” she explained the fallout in a past interview.
