Emma Babayaro shoots new video!-ID Cabasa headlined as producer of his debut album

Former Super Eagles goal tender and Atlanta Olympics Gold medallist, Emmanuel Babayaro, is smarting from his recently released single, and the making of his first music video entitled Naija Area.

The video features Jude Orhorha, the Amata's, Sound Sultan,1924, Tolu Devine, Tope Swag, ID Cabasa, but to mention a few.

The footballer now turned artiste will embark on a trip to European later in the month to search for another location for his next video.

The video launch will be held at the end of this month, and a glut of ex-footballers, fans and family members are expected to grace the occasion.

Meanwhile, hot in demand producer ID Cabasa is headlined to produce Emmanuel Babayaro's debut album which is in its formative stages.

Emmanuel Babayaro, who is the elder brother to Celestine Babayaro, said music was his first love before he took to football. “Football is all about entertainment and so is music. Anybody that loves football automatically loves music and movies. Music has always been in me even before football. My parents expected me to become a musician and not a footballer. My parents will tell you that even when I was given birth to, I had the tendencies to entertain. But as far as I can remember in my senses, me and my brother Celestine would dance and perform at parties and weddings while we were still young. I think I was about 10 or 12 then, and I was a street dancer.

“It is not a surprise. Even my old school mates would tell you the same thing. Right from the U17, U20, U23 and the Super Eagles, myself and Celestine were the main entertainers while we were in camp. We always sing, dance and do a lot of other funny things when we were not training.”
