Nonso Amadi also is a producer, giving him a firmer hand in the creation of his music. Tonight was self produced. He also produced “Ride” off Oma Mahmud’s “Somewhere in Lagos” EP. We could say Amadi is following in the steps of the likes of Cobhams Asuquo and Maleek Berry with the duality.
Nonso is definitely a breath of fresh air, appealing to the music senses, delivering pleasurable sounds pulled from his experiences to tell real stories through his music.
