After trying out a cover Adele’s Hello , Owawumi follows it up with Butterflies which is off her new Instalment “TIMELESS”

2. Blessed By Milli was Sampled from AKA’s Celebrate. Considering that the song was produced by Beat By Dre , A producer who resamples already made instrumentals it is no surprise. Blessed is a track from the Former Choc city Artiste’s EP Titled CHILDISH.

MI-Abaga-Milli-1

The Question from the photo craves answers. Milli was signed to Chocolate City but fell out with M.I and his cohorts after a failed attempt to force Milli to do their own kind of Hip-Hop, The Commercial Hip-Hop. MILLI who is currently unsigned managed to put up an EP “CHILDISH”. Excerpts from that EP shows MILLI Has a lot to offer but he is unappreciated.

Ademola Falomo (Video Director)

demola
Ademola is gifted 19-year-old filmmaker, and is the Director and brain behind the visuals of Odunsi’s Desire.
A little more research and I found out that Ademola had also directed one of the best videos of 2016 as well, Santi’s ridiculously cool “Gangster Fear” and Tomi Thomas’ Climate Changes– and we were immediately sold on his talents. In Time this Young Lad will Rival the likes of Sesan, Unlimited L.A, Clarence and the other top Cinematographers.
