This week on BN, I had an interview with Gbenga Salu, an award-winning, self-tutored Music Video Director & Visual Effects Artist. He is undoubtedly one of Nigeria’s young and most promising music video directors. In 2008, the year he started directing, he won the award for Best Special Effects and Editing at the Soundcity Music video Awards. A year later, he was awarded Most Promising Director at the Nigerian Music Video Awards. Born and bred in Lagos, Gbenga who has been twice nominated for Best Screen Producer at the Future Awards has a long list of winners to his credit, including Aye ole (Infinity), Ten Ten (MoHits), Viva Africa (Fela), Turn me around (Kenny Saint Brown ft. Dagrin), Believe in me & Two legit (T.W.O), Omoba (D’Prince), Change your Parade (Lynxxx), God Hand & Na so (Eva), Ore (Ibiyemi), Run with you (Lara George), and Bianule (Samsong).
In less than a decade, he has gradually but surely come to establish himself as a major player in the Nigerian music video circles. He talks about his initial stint in Mechanical Engineering, his persistent love for the creative arts and eventual switch, his knack for discovering things on his own, and other enlightening details.
