I Divorced Music To Become A Music Video Producer – Akin Alabi

Akin Alabi has revealed how his love for music which started at the University of Ilorin led him to become one of the top music video producers in Nigeria.

Sharing a cassette which he says contains his first album as a musician, Akin Alabi stated that he never had a dream to become a music video producer.

He captioned the picture: “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″.
