Naima Adedapo Reveals Album Cover Shoot

American Idol Seaosn 10 finalist Naima Adedapo recently revealed her highly-anticipated album cover shoot on Facebook earlier today. Naima tweeted back in January that she signed a record deal with Peak Records.  According to published reports, Naima will first release a 3-song EP this month (produced by Warryn Campbell) followed by her debut album release later on this year.

Much of the look is close-up shots of the Milwaukee, WI Nigerian vocalist Naima wearing, presumably,  designs from her close Senegalese friend Adama Bah. Naima has from her time on the popular singing talent show been a huge supporter of African wax print fabrics so it comes as no surprise that these designs are featured front and center for this new album cover portraits.

*UPDATE: Naima just confirmed to that Adama Bah, a tailor in Chicago owner of Goree Shop, did her West African outfits for this shoot! Awesome, isn’t it?
