Praised as a Legend of Africa’s percussion-heavy Fuji music, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal known by the moniker, K1 De Ultimate announces a new single dubbed ‘Awade.’ It is the lead to his new EP, which drops on August 21.
Over 15 years ago, Kwam 1 also released a song titled, ‘Awade.’ His new EP, Fuji, The Sound is also available for pre-order.
K1 has seen it all in his 50 year plus career, enjoying critical & commercial success home and abroad in a career span that has taken him from young upstart in 1970 to an African cultural authority.
A forward thinking interpretation of Fuji music, Fuji the Sound E.P is K1 De Ultimate’s upcoming body of work. The EP which will house a total of six songs is a product of two years of tweaking and experimentation across the music forms set, ultimately, to the rhythmic drum-heavy pattern of puritan Fuji music.
The urban spirit is reflected in the team of collaborators that the music icon assembles including producer, Mystro, and singers, Teni and Toby Grey. Awade is the project’s first single. The Fuji the Sound EP will arrive on August 21.
