THE FELA VIDEO!
One of the biggest highlights of my career so far has been doing a video for the ABAMI EDA himself, FELA ANIKULAPO-KUTI! The story goes thus: The legend has always had this song called viva africa dat he had recorded many year bck. According to wot i heard, the song was NEVER released. So for last year's FELEBRATION ceremony, the organisers felt, i'd be cool to hv a befitting video for the classic song. And since the Abami eda is no longer with us, they (organisers) tot id be too normal/usual to use clips from his live performances as the video. So there came the idea to hv it done animation style. Well the first/best name that readily came to there minds was...wel...well...you know. And so the rest is history! Got great compliment from beyond naija's shores, where the video has been screened! I like it too...wot u fink? Here are some snapshots frm the vid. Shuld post a link where u can watch it soon!
