“This was my first album released in 1999 while i was in University of Ilorin. I never had a dream of becoming a video director or editor.
I remember recording this album in one analog studio with my friends @daviddunnidada , sola dada, bolaji teru, buky, evelyn. The production was done with yamaha psr530. We recorded directly into a cassette then. No time for overdubs like that. Everything had to be one-take. .
Eventually music lead me to video. I divorced music and embraced the art of video making. Music sneaked back later and became my sidechick. We gave birth to a child called I komole in 2012″.
