Dele Sosimi - No Fit Touch AmWah Wah 45s
Almost ten years since his last release, London resident and aforbeat ambassador Dele Sosimi returns with "No Fit Touch Am". Dele worked alongside the legendary Fela Kuti and eventually became his music director of Fela's Egypt 80 and Positive Force. Dubbed the King of Afrobeat piano, Sosimi's keyboard prowess appears on a number of tracks here. "Where We Want to Be" is a mid tempo groove with infectious syncopated rhythms and tasty horns. "Na My Turn" is another funky number that speaks about rising up to the political corruption in Nigeria. "I don't Care" is filled with tasty rhythmic guitars and percussion. Sosimi's sought out to produce a recording that's not only filled with powerful lyrics that speak to activism but also superb instrumentation and arrangements. He succeeds mightily on both fronts.
