Black Motion on the meaning behind their album name ‘The Healers’

We want, in a nutshell, in this album to understand where Black Motion started, and the way Black Motion is today with our sound in this album. Wherever we were going, people would say our music heals them. And that’s why right now, this album is called ‘The Healer.’ And yeah, man, what we expect out of this album is just to give an explanation of Black Motion in a nutshell, in the album, in the 41 tracks that we have. So, yeah, man, it’s a story of Black Motion in the 10 years up to today.

Black Motion on whether this will be the final chapter

No, this was the last chapter of the 10 years book. Now going onto a new book. So each album represented a chapter in the book, in the 10 years. So we’re closing this chapter and moving on to a new chapter now.

Nigerian filmmaker Ademola Falomo shares his favorite African proverb

I’m Nigerian, so I do have a Yoruba proverb. Pretty much it goes like “Ile oba t’o jo, ewa lo busi.” So it pretty much says, “When a king’s palace gets burned down, it looks more beautiful.” So it says that the king’s palace gets burned down and he has to renovate it, so it looks more beautiful than before. And pretty much stating that when things have really gone bad for you, or you feel like you have failed or crushed down, and have to start again, things look easier and more beautiful because you pretty much now know the things to do right.
