Wale Oyejide

Africa Hot! - The Afrofuture Sessions

Shaman Work

Download "Keep Shining" (MP3, 192kbps)

"Wale Oyejide has returned with a new project that further binds the traditional sounds of Nigerian Afro-beat with the future vibes of the London Broken-beat scene, while managing to maintain the neck-snapping sensibilities of Hip-Hop. Try and imagine what it would sound like if Fela Kuti held a session with Bugz in the Attic in Brooklyn, New York, and you might have a vague idea." -- Shaman Work
