Emerging Nigerian vocalist Motàrá Thomas has unveiled her brand-new debut single titled Don’t Back Down.
The heartfelt song, which serves as a tribute to Motàrá’s late mother who’s dying wish was for Motàrá to follow her dream of becoming a music superstar, was produced by Oluremi Iyilade and the accompanying visuals were shot in Lagos by Kemz Art, while the choreography was directed by Michael ‘Nìlẹ’ Emono.
The video for Don’t Back Down features members of the Thomas family paying tribute to the matriarch Mrs. Oyindamola Thomas with very real and strong emotions on display, all of which complements the uplifting theme of the song and Motàrá’s expressive vocals.
As an emerging singer, song writer and performer, Motàrá currently operates as an independent artist after years of contemplating whether or not she was ready to start a career as a performing artist. Drawing inspiration for her music from living, loving and experiencing life, Motàrá has finally taken a leap of faith, and is now ready to take the world of music by storm.
