The international audio films were a lot better than our locally produced ones. Despite strikes such as: Nico Mbanga (Sweet Mother), Osita Osadebe (Osondi Owendi), Oliver de Coque (Boni boni identity), Mandy Brown (Taxi driver), Onyeka Owenu (One Love), Lorine Okotie (His love is that medicine), Charly child (Before Before) Chris Okotie (ABC), Evy Edna Ogoli( Happy Birthday), Felyx and Mozes( Free), Felix Liberty(Ifeoma), Stella Monye (Nigeria get survive), as observed in one of my articles “The blossoming Of The Nigerian Music Industry”, artistes unsuccessful to help make the desired impact in the Global scene, based amongst other things on the colossal deficient video quality account Mp3 Download.
The 90’s era was not dramatically greater than the 80’s, possibly the middle 90’s when the genre of music towed the road of reputation / rap and the usage of our regional parlance in tunes began to make the audio market more interesting instead of the 80’s. The Remedies (Edris Abdulkareem, Eddie Montana, Tony tetwila) keyed engrossed and turned the rave of the minute at that time.
Plantation Boyz (Tu experience Idibia, Faze, Dark Face) were incredible and soared to higher levels ahead of the party split. The launching of Tu face Idibia’s solo career along with his strike monitor “African-american Queen” catapulted him to the top. Most Nigerians enjoyed his first video, but however he had to re-shoot another in conformity with the path of a well known international audio TV channel. Type Plus’s “Olu Fumi” also had a great movie when comparing to several that stormed our TV sets. John Play’s strike tune “Angel of my life” also had an awesome video.
Possibly, the turning point for the creating of high quality movies stalks from the secure of P- Sq with the video because of their attack music “Do me” which was picture in South Africa. The movie truly attack the Global standard mark with different audio willing TV reveals in Nigeria, continually showing it. Artistes challenged by the solid production began traveling South Africa, USA, and parts of Europe to capture videos of these songs.
They also highlighted bright skinned ladies dance in the videos. Many top rated artistes patronise directors who’ve etched niches for themselves in the artwork of earning quality videos. Covers on the record are DJ Tee, Clarence Peters (CEO of Capital Hill) and Bobby Hai.
The increase of Cally Ikpe’s “Nigerian Audio Video Awards” (NMVA) and Noise City Music Video Prizes (SMVA) targeted at worthwhile artistes with first class films have also led to the increase of good quality productions. Besides, artistes who’ve good videos have quick access to enjoy airplay on MTV Base, Channel O and different International music channels, opening broader, the gates which tend to offer them usage of celebrity and fortune.
Great, creative movies are important and draw focus on the artistes and of course, the director. Quality audio movies which have made dunes in Nigeria and even beyond include however not limited to: P- Square (Do me, Roll it, Ifunnaya), Challenge Art Alade (Not the lady, More), Tu experience Idibia (If enjoy is a crime), Kel (Too fine), Keffi (kokoroko), Naeto D (Kini big deal), Bouqui (Take you away), Infinity (Olori oko), Asa (Fire on the mountain), TY Bello (Green land, Ekundayo), Gino (No be God), Djinee (Lade), DJ Jimmy Jatt (Too significantly foot Sasha, Blaise, kemistry, Bouqui), Alabai (Voice of God), Mo strike all stars (Pere), Omawunmi (In the music), Nikki Laoye (Never believed that way), Metal (South African-american girl).
Nigerian audio movies have undoubtedly helped artistes to clinch global deals / prizes and are recovering daily. The couple of P-Square clinched the KORAH awards presented this year at Burkina Faso for the “Artiste of the year” category. The twins gone home with the jack pot prize of $ 1 million !.Use of latest Hi-tech cameras / technology, wild imagination, higher level of professionalism on the the main directors, could make Nigerian films the speak of the city in international countries.
