According to Vanilla, his inspiration for music comes from things happening in his life.
“Sometimes it even transcends happenings/ stories per se; it could be complex stuff like colour, weather, emotion etc. Other times it could be something as basic as a stammerer trying to pronounce a simple word like “tablet”. This was actually the inspiration behind the song La La,” he said.
He added, “I happen to be at this eatery where I was having some lunch. Not too long after, two beautiful women walk in and make their order. They take their seats close to mine. In addition, start having random conversations while they wait. I realized one of them stutters. Never had I seen one as beautiful as this one. Apparently, she ordered something different, something a bit ‘heavy’ according to her, which I later realized was not what they both agreed to order on their way there. In her attempt to explain why she changed her mind, she goes; “I had to, these ta-ta-tablets (pills) I’m taking are very strong, as she stuttered. A bulb literally lit bright in my creative mind and viola!……I go die for your matter-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta. (with her beauty in mind)”.
Enjoy La La From Vanilla!
