Alternative rock has never felt so cool and Favour Flakes is one those who are blazing the trail of this unique genre in Nigeria.
This song titled ‘Heaven’ is indeed heavenly as Favour takes us on a journey through the heavenly bound paths that God has set for him. His doubts, his questions, his call for directions, asking that his life finds a meaning, these yearnings are what every soul out there longs for. We all can relate to this, we all miss heaven, we all want to get to heaven. Guess what, heaven starts inside of us. It’s the inner peace that only God can give.
To create a sound that will inspire my legacy”- this is the conviction that drives FAVOUR FLAKES, Nigeria’s response to Josh Groban.
FF is an inspirational artist and hails from Uromi in Edo state, Nigeria. He is a classically trained tenor, with many recitals performances to his credit, but has always had a creative vision to develop new sounds that infuse classical music, afro pop and indie genre into a beautiful tune.
Flakes is a French graduate and has worked at different times in various educational consulates acting as a language translator or French instructor. He loves to spend his free time training gospel and classical choirs, and always enjoys a good gist with close friends. He attributes his music influences to great mentors such as Osadebe, Cold Play, Sir Victor Uwaifo, and Michael Crawford.
To the surprise of many, Favour Flakes held an MTN powered charity concert last year tagged Favour Flakes Revelation Concert and it featured the likes of top and rising musicians and comedians like Timi Dakolo, Clay, Ikay Rocks, F-Clef, Hushbebe, MC Shakara etc
