Music Documentary: Sir Shina Peters speaks...

I know now what it means for something to be a labor of love. I feel like I've been working on this documentary forever! Despite the time it has taken, I feel encouraged that every time a new piece of the puzzle emerges, and every time I start editing it again, I'm  still excited about the stories I'm telling. That's a good sign, right?

Here's a short clip from the Legendary Sir Shina Peters, from my interview with him. In it, he talks about how he's influenced the younger generation, and even spits a few bars :) Enjoy

Please let me know what you think of it, and do comment, share, and subscribe here, and to my youtube channel! I appreciate y'all!

FUELING MY FRUSTRATION (Part 2)

3 guesses on what this is about...

I wrote this post on the Accelerate TV website about 10 months ago, when we had a fuel scarcity. I am beyond upset that this is now our reality. Everyone, everywhere is affected. The long queues causing horrible traffic as they stretch longer and longer by the day, blocking entrances/exits, taking up precious road space. And if you've ever been in Lagos, you know many of us already think of road rules as those funny things we don't need to obey. *I'm not even joking*

Here are a few of my favorite bits that are still (very sadly) our reality...

Works in Progress - My Documentary!

When you say you're a documentary maker, you should probably make a documentary, right? No-brainer. So, after several years of working with others on documentary projects, I've been working on a documentary series of my own and on my own. I've still got a ways to go, but I'll be releasing more and more as time goes on and I do more filming. For now, here's a 30 second teaser of what will eventually become a 13 episode documentary on Nigerian Music, from the stables of Onyx Productions! Whoo!

I'm talking to legends like Sir Shina Peters and Laolu Akins, Industry insiders and music fans like TY Mix, DJ Jimmy Jatt, and Tosyn Bucknor, and many many more. 

Let me know what music means to you, who some of your favorite Naija musicians are, old and new, and of course, please like, rate, subscribe, share, share, share, and SHARE!! Thanks for your support, guys!
