There are some exciting content emerging from the Nigerian film space which is largely obscured from view because it does not fit the regular Nollywood model that we used to know. Lege Miami is one of the revolutionary filmmaker and musician that is making it happen.
Lege Miami, whose real name is Kehinde Adams is a popular filmmaker with several hit movies to his credit. He is one of Nigeria’s most prolific TV directors having overseen nearly 500 movies of Africa’s biggest drama series.
The big news is that the creative young talent is equally doing well in the music industry. He has produced 3 hit singles that are hot on the Djay’s turn tables.
He refers to himself as a ‘creator’ shying away from terms like ‘artist’ and ‘filmmaker’. It is perhaps this unwillingness to be categorized that has allowed him to freely explore and paint a new Nigerian film canvas.
What is so unique about Lege Miami’s direction is his painstaking attention to the craft of filmmaking — a refreshing change from the slap-and-dash charm of Nollywood productions
The young fimlmaker hit the headlines in Citypeople when his movie attracted millions of Nigerian movie lovers and those in Diasporra.
When asked about which of the brand artist inspires him, He said he loves Wasiu Alabi Pasuma.
“I love his style of music.
2He’s creative and on point”, he said.
