Music video director Unlimited LA says he is not in competition with his colleague Clarence Peters.
Unlimited LA, real name Buari Olalekan Oluwasegun, described Peters as the “hardest working music video director in Africa”.
In an interview with Hip TV, he acknowledged that Peters is ahead of him in terms of experience and know-how, saying he has nothing but respect for him.
He said: “When I was the errand boy or production assistant, Clarence was already a DOP. Even before I learned what record is on a camera.
“I respect him so much because he is older than I am and he has got more work experience.
“If I am stuck with a particular project, I always call him anytime, ask him questions. I don’t see us competing.
“He is a bigger man. He is the hardest working music video director in Africa. I have been to a few countries in Africa and Mr Clarence Peters is the hardest worker I know. I respect him so much.”
Unlimited LA also commented on his working relationship with rapper Olamide Adedeji. In the past few years, the pair has collaborated on several videos.
The video director said he met the rapper when he was still signed to ID Cabasa’s Coded Tunes record label.
He said they struck a friendship and at some point, Olamide called him to shoot a video, and ever since, they have been working together.
“We have no contract binding us together. We just enjoy each other’s vibe,” he said.
