Industry Nite hosted Aquila Records’ golden boy, Airboy to undoubtedly the most electrifying edition of their weekly event in December 2017, an event which also saw  the release of his debut body of work, the Vibes EP.
Here is the video to the Vibes single, featuring excerpts from the December event;
AIRBOY – VIBES VIDEO

 

Directed by Adasa Cookey and Victor Amama for Squareball Media, the video takes us through events building up to the successful event, as well as performances from the event, especially that special moment when his mum was handed a microphone to pray for him on stage.
Vibes video is generally inspired by Airboy’s musical legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, much like the song itself. It is set against the typical Afrika Shrine background, with real yearning fans and exciting musical performances on an electrifying night that fans will not be quick to forget.
In an Instagram post to promote his Industry Nite event and Vibes EP in December, Airboy wrote;
“My love for Fela Anikulapo Kuti can’t be put to words. Listening to him while growing up planted the love for music in me, love that has germinated into the artiste that I am today.
“I have come a long way, and still have an even longer way to go. Every step of the way I have carried Fela along in my heart and will always do.
“My first effort, the Vibes EP drops today. It is named after a song I did particularly in Fela’s memory. The release concert is happening tonight at no other place but Afrika Shrine, also in Fela’s memory. This is also because I’m dedicating it all to the Abami Eda himself as it clocks 20 years since he passed on. In gratitude for all he has done for me through his music.
“So as we troop out to party tonight, and as we buy and play the songs on my EP, let’s not forget to remember Fela through it all. #FelaLivesOn”
Airboy was styled in the video by Adedeji Riliwan Bamidele of StyledByReus, and supported on stage by The Kinetics Band and Awanjo Dancers.
