"Fantastic Man," a short film from Alldayeveryday director Jake Sumner, investigates the elusive Nigerian musician William Onyeabor. With a career spanning eight self-released albums from the mid-1970s to 80s, Onyeabor has been mysterious for his distinct, prolific synth-based sound and his means of self-production, as he recorded and pressed his albums at his own studio, Wilfilms Ltd. With synthesizers already being a rare luxury at the time, especially in Africa, many rumors circulate about Onyeabor and his financial connections, even speculating Russian ties.
