Vector Teslim Album Tracklist

With contributions from the likes of Nasty C, Seun Kuti, Ladipoe and more, Vector maps out a record of thoughts and moments.

I went from just making music that was just compiling an album for fans, to then taking it slow and making music according to my life’s truth and story, So when you hear songs like ‘I Need You’, it’s not the skill of delivery per se, it’s the writing. It’s a letter to my child. I’m telling her, ‘Your grandpa left but he’s a part of me, which is a part of you, which is a part of everything you do’…” says V.E.C.
