Backstage during Felabration 2011. It was fun hanging around friends and fellow artists. The vibe is always exceptionally positive no ego tripping we just celebrating the man himself FELA. The shrine crowd is something else they party hard -taking no prisoners stylee. I’ll be posting some shots of our show later in the week.
We’re going to the cinemas thanks to Nigerian film maker Andy Amadi Okoroafor’s “Relentless”- the movie stars Jimmy Jean Louis, Gideon Okeke and musician/singer Nneka Egbuna. According to Okoroafor it is “a haunting story about loneliness, love and self-discovery that explores Africa’s throbbing megacity Lagos, and the effects of war and loss.”
I was privileged to have seen Relentless at the maiden edition of the African International Film Festival in Port Harcourt earlier this month and i must say i was highly impressed. It’s the ultimate Lagos movie, a well executed arthouse piece of cinematic beauty.
The soundtrack also features Tony Allen, Oranmiyan, Nneka, General Pype & Keziah Jones
