Obi Emelonye


Just finished the score to Obi Emelonye’s epic “Badamasi”. Based upon the true story and life of Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida.

This was quite the endeavor, as the film is over 2 hours and there were only 3 weeks to compose the score to meet the Toronto Film Festival deadline. Originally, we were only going to score the primary scenes to meet the TFF deadline, but love for the picture turned into insomnia, obsession, and 20 hour days . As soon as Obi sent me the script I couldn’t stop turning the pages. Beautiful story, wonderful cast, and a truly amazing director. It was a real pleasure to work with Obi on this. Now that we have moment to breathe, we’ll be adjusting and tweaking the final score over the next month for the final release.
