In a cut-throat industry such as music, artiste and record producer Ademola Adegbite also known as Kannon has delved into the world of film scoring/soundtracks and is slowly carving a path for himself in the film industry as his 2020 single ‘Face’ featuring Titxn is heard in the feature-length film ‘May 29’ a psychological thriller with dark-themed visuals which follows the life and haunting family ancestry of the lead character “Mayowa” (played by Anto Lecky) as she raps up her final exams.
Kannon decided to venture into Film sound and Advertising due to the unbalanced compensation culture for producers in the Nigerian music industry. He is of the opinion that producers should have other streams of income either within or outside the music industry.
His company Novus Entertainment also composed music for a short film titled ‘Stigma’. The movie which addressed rape culture in Nigeria was produced by Ayo Ekun; premiered at the University of Lagos and is featured on Amazon’s video streaming service.
Kannon has worked with artists such as Jackmillz (who was featured on Olamide’s “999” Studio Album), Meji, Mo’Believe and more. He has been featured on websites such as OkayAfrica, The PGM Club and Pulse.ng.
Kannon was also one of the producers selected for the maiden edition of The Sarz Academy in 2015; the program was developed by award-winning producer “Sarz” to mentor young composers as they enter into the Nigerian music industry.
