Welcome to 2019 as Tolani goes mainstream with a new single “Ba Mi Lo” alongside Reekado Banks. A romantic song, “Ba mi lo” (in Yoruba) translates to “come with me”, and expunges on how two people could be passionately attracted to each other, but are yet unsure whether the feeings are mutual. The video put together by ace director, Ani James and was shot within 48 hours.
The director is a huge lover of nature and it is understandable that “Ba Mi Lo” was shot at the serene Lufasi Nature Park in Lekki, Nigeria. However, he discloses that the theme of the song influenced the choice of location because, as with nature, things are sometimes not exactly how they seem.
“Ba mi lo” is another major step in Tolani’s evolution in the industry and there is no doubt there’s a whole lot more to come from her.
