BN Bytes: iROKtv Interviews the King of Highlife Flavour N’abania

Flavour N’abania (real name Chinedu Okoli) is the current crowned king of highlife. With his chart-topping singles, his charisma and his unique style, Flavour has cut out a niche for himself in the music industry where he has monopoly and reigns king.

So Ifeanyi Attamah of iROKtv went done to Flavour‘s abode for an interview. The two play a game of pool while Flavour spills out all the things we want to know and learn about who Flavour N’abania is. Enjoy!

    He was barely audible without a mic on him, but whoever edited the video didn’t think it wise to delay raising the background sound of his music until he was done answering questions. Even when it played during the interviews, it was still competing with both Flavour and the interviewer’s voices. Not sure what editing software was used, but it should’ve been very easy to drop the background sound a little bit more.

    You also don’t need to break so much in between his responses to play music. I don’t know if this was done to expand the interview into a specific time frame, but there’s a lot more you could’ve asked him if you had the time. Padding the interview with musical videos should be limited to no more than three short clips. After that, it becomes distracting. I didn’t mind that video of him channeling Fela, cos I’d never seen or heard that. Besides, just stick to rarely seen videos or just one or two of his songs. He was sharing his perspective on making it in the music industry, and the camera paused for a while. And as he gets more introspective, the editor broke away to his “Catch Cold” song with Tiwa Savage.

    This is one of the best interviewers I’ve seen. Natural, not interrupting, not blowing phonetics for us. I think they spent too much time actually shooting pool. I get where they were going: to create a laid back atmosphere, but he should’ve gotten Flavour to pause, make eye contact with him and just vibe. Then maybe when you pad the interview with his songs, you can show then playing pool over the music. The moment where they laughed over the ball placement was nice though. But I think for those saying he lacks personality, it’s not his fault. The interviewer didn’t get him to put the pool aside long enough to engage him.

    What a lot of people need to know is the interviewer is the representation of the audience. Whatever he’s asking, is what the audience wants to know. So if you do a poor job interviewing, the audience would get a poor job. He asked the right questions, but the eye contact was missing, and the audience, therefore was missing his personality (which I think based on his music videos is probably not boring) since he seemed focus too much on hitting his targets than on the interviewer. And what’s this thing about speaking into a different camera instead of the camera shooting them. During the interview, yes, you don’t respond looking into the camera. But when you are signing out, you should be staring at the camera the audience is watching.

    At the end of the day, I like his music. I liked the laid back approach of the interview. No forming from both guys. I just wish I didn’t have to watch nearly 30 minutes of footage to hear it all.

    i cant even hear very much of what flavour is saying..the editing is really bad.

  • ojaybaby March 22, 2012 at 9:49 pm
