The creative scene in Indianapolis is going through a phase. It is metamorphosizing into one of the biggest African markets in the United States of America as more and more talented creatives are finding avenues to express their art.
In 2016, I wrote about an exciting Author by the name Aderonke Moyinlorun and how her books were gaining her a lot of recognition and traction. I am happy to announce that today, Aderonke Moyinlorun has blossomed into a fine script writer and a bubbling movie producer.
Her debut movie “Dear husband” which was filmed some weeks ago is set for release. We were very privileged to get pictures on set while filming, and It is easy to tell from the pictures we got that this is one movie that we all should seriously anticipate.
Dear husband centers around Steve and Funmilola, a happily married couple who seem to be a match made in heaven until a past mistake, in form of an old flame, and pressure from friends tests their commitment to each other. Dear Husband tells a heart warming tale of love and how loss can bring about forgiveness.
Dear Husband premieres on the 1st of December at Georgetown cinema, Indianapolis Indiana USA, and an after party follows at Club Kalakutah.

We already know that when Papyfire announces new music, he means good music. He is like Virgil van Dijk, the surprise champion of the game, that is why I believe that the title of the album “The Champ” does, in fact, suit the project.
The project has a heavy TRAP feel but also comprises songs with an afrobeat vibe Afrobeat. What I particularly love about the album is how samples are used to convey different messages, some of which sound really inspirational.
“Firetape is a series of many projects we will be put out moving forward, it’s a place were I express my deepest imaginations and my immediate reality. My team called this tape “The Champ” based on their experience grinding and winning with me every day, I never say NO to a challenge. We all have to constantly strive to be Champions, that’s literally the only way to improve our industry and society as a whole. The Champ is one of many fire tapes to come, we are also releasing some afrobeat, dancehall and other genres including another EP before the end of the year. As long as I have a voice, you will always hear from the champ”.
I recommend you listen to it and also leave a comment below.
