Ghettoration /

Ghettoration was coined from Ghetto and Gyration. This is a story of resistance, perseverance and aspiration of three upcoming musicians living in the ghettos called Iwaya and Makoko, neighbouring communities. The documentary film shows how Edaoto, Awoko and Cornerstone move on with their lives despite the dictates, insertions and philosophical conflicts (infusion of societal and personal views) of their chosen career.

 

After several years of being in the music industry, they are yet to record a single track each. Yet, they attempt toward being a force to reckon with in the community of family, friends and folks, and they strive to uphold personal uprightness. The gain of resistance and perseverance is success, which is measured by the readiness of the artists for what the future holds.

NOTE: 

Edaoto released his first album two years after this documentary and he has travelled to Zimbabwe, Uganda and recently Belgium for concerts.

Awoko is now working on his album. He started working with Qdance, a dance company, two years after this documentary and has since travelled to more five countries including France.

Cornerstone now lives and works at the Seriki Williams Abbas's Barracoon at the Point Of Return in Badagry. He released his album in 2017.
