February is here and it is a very special month for us at Kaliné HQ because today marks a year since the release of ‘The Fires Of Red” audio and visual story album.
The protagonist, Tomi serves as a narator as we embarked on the journey through her eyes.
A tale of love, friendship and betrayal. Tomi and her boyfriend Roman turn to their exes shortly after Roman’s ex Kechi arrives in Lagos from New York.
They don’t realize that this is an orchestrated attempt by Anji (Tomi’s longtime friend) to resume what was a very short affair with who she considered her true love – Roman.
The great ploy is filled with twists and turns, baby mama drama and even a surprising proposal. Everything goes haywire when Hakeem (who we later find is in on Anji’s plan in order to woo Tomi successfully) decides to rat Anji out publicly.
The story was released through 14 songs (from February 1st to the 14th), accompanying dialogue and 14 drawings as cover artwork for each song. Here’s one below but see all songpisodes on the official TFOR website here.
All 14 songs were recorded by Kaliné in her New York apartment – mostly in her PJ’s. All songs were written, composed, arranged, recorded and produced by her as well as the drawings and the dialogue boxes.
TFOR’s triumphant 2015
Track 1: Tell You Of My Love was released in August, 2015 as the leading track off the TFOR album along with Nigeria’s first lyric video (shot in Brooklyn, New York) to go with it. Listen here. Watch below!
Thank you to all who have shown interest in this unique project right from the beginning and we hope that you all continue to enjoy the music.
