A nostalgic & wishful piece of art – Johnny Drille’s cover of ‘All Time Low’

– Titilope Adesanya

Johnny Johnny Drille…here are my reasons.

The emotional and very present performance stripped of all unnecessary chaos draws me in with its simplicity…

The strings lend the song a fresh melodic feel, islandic almost. And boy do I love the hint of sand, fire and music…

The introduction of the drums give it a neo-authentic African feel, so much so I think we can maybe claim it as ours now…

The laid-back feel of the visual representations of every fun yet painful memory of the moments we shared with those we loved, all gone with the waves…

These are only a few reasons why I am in love with this cover…

Shot and Directed by: Xela and Lekan | Starring Imani Damaris
