Singer, Songwriter & Poet Davina Oriakhi Unveils 'F.S.L.S' Music Video

Taken From Debut Album ‘Love To A Mortal’ To Be Released On July 28

London-based British Nigerian singer, songwriter and poet Davina Oriakhi, releases the exciting new music video for her soulful hip-hop single ‘F.S.L.S‘. Written as an acronym for ‘Find Self Love Self’, ‘F.S.L.S’ is the second single to be taken from Davina Oriakhi’s forthcoming debut album Love To A Mortal, which is set to be released on July 28, following its well-received lead single ‘Silence (Father Have Mercy)‘ and preceding her AfroFusion hit “Juju”.

Produced by Albanian musician Gabriel Ryder, mixed and mastered by Shaun ‘Hypertone’ Barrett (SnakehipsJessie JAlesha Dixon) and written by Oriakhi herself, ‘F.S.L.S’ is an infectious offering about self-discovery, self-acceptance and the journey to self-love. According to Oriakhi, “it’s different from being cocky, it’s about knowing and loving yourself enough to love someone else the right way“.

For the ‘F.S.L.S‘ video, Davina Oriakhi has collaborated with burgeoning director Loraa White (DavidoJLSTiwa Savage) to create a vibrant and colourful visual offering that is a perfect fit for the summer, and brings the life-affirming message on ‘F.S.L.S’ further to life. Shot in the effervescent Shoreditch area, the visuals also highlight Davina’s fun and carefree personality, and give us but a small glimpse into the exciting artist that is Davina Oriakhi. The Video was premiered on the 14th of July on Unsigned Music Awards website. 

Speaking about the inspiration behind the ‘F.S.L.S’ single and visuals, Davina Oriakhi says, “the process of writing the entire LP involved a journey of self-love, self discovery and self acceptance, and this short sweet song ‘F.S.L.S’ encapsulates the questions I asked, and the lessons I learnt. The video is my own cute edgy way of showing someone spend time with oneself – which is a very important thing to do“.

Aptly described as a musically fluid and soulful lyricist writing songs about life, love and spirituality, Davina Oriakhi has steadily been winning over hearts and minds across Europe and Africa, since her critically acclaimed 2014 debut single ‘Content‘, which has since been followed up with ‘Juju‘ and ‘Silence (Father Have Mercy)’ to rave reviews, and now ‘F.S.L.S’. Her forthcoming debut album Love To A Mortal is one to look out for this year.
