Femi Olusa, also known as Femi O Acoustics is a foremost Nigeria soundproof studio designer.
He hails from Akoko in Ondo state and has been in the industry for 26yrs. He is an instrumentalist who plays bass guitar specifically.
According to him during an exclusive interview with GISTHOOD , he learnt woodwork and crossed into studio soundproof line in 1999.
Studio soundproof designing is quite a standalone industry as it has different types of designs patterns, Femi O Acoustics background in woodwork and furniture making made him a reference point in the industry.
” Engineer Sesan of Christ Embassy gave me my first studio deal. I saw it in a dream that I was working with foreigners and celebrities before my brother, Sesan called me.
So, my venture into studio soundproof making is a divine calling, I was made to do this” he stated.
Mr Femi Olusa divulged that “Buchi was the first person to call me Femi Acoustics, and the name stuck”. According to him, he waited for 4-6 years before he could register this brand name with CAC, this was how FEMI O ACOUSTICS NIG LTD was birthed, even though he has been working years before then.
Femi O Acoustics specialize in all types of studios, Tv studio, Radio studio, music recording studio and photo studios.
The brand has designed soundproof studios for notable celebrities and brands like ; Glitch Africa, AIT, TVC, Don Jazzy, Patoranking , Cobhams ,Traffic radio , Women radio , Baba Yewa , Radio Lagos/ Eko FM.

“In a year, we deliver average of 19 studios, in this year alone, we have designed 11, this means we will surpass our previous record.
During the COVID-19 movement restrictions, we designed and redesigned alot of studios, especially for churches as most of them hold services online like; Clam church.”
According to Femi, “Delivering a good finish for studio soundproof entails having detailed knowledge of the location, the level of noise interference will be considered and importantly the type of studio the client wants.”
Materials are sourced both locally and internationally and is one of their unique selling points. ” I get referrals from everywhere…when people need a studio, people like Don jazzy, 9ice to name a few, just tell them to call ” Femi” and that’s it.
I work closely with Bankuli, Don Jazzy, sound engineers, producers, Artistes, Record label owners.”
According to the CEO of Femi O Acoustics, most of his contracts like was earlier are referrals, some people don’t even meet him physically, they send videos of their space and he comes up with accurate quote before commencing work.
Some projects require physical inspection and he travels down to the location before coming up with an accurate design.
“For young people venturing into studio soundproof Industry, honesty is a virtue. I sometimes work with Middlemen, who get contracts directly from clients, I don’t talk to their clients, even my employees wear a different uniform for this kind of job. They will just wear a jacket with the inscription ” Acoustics” , but, when the job is ours directly, they were our “Femi O Acoustics” inscribed jackets.”
For trainings and mentoring, I am not open to that yet as people think the training fee is high,the truth is he is booked and busy. This is something we hope to organize sometime in the future.
