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″.
