Wah Wah 45s present the first full-length album in almost a decade from vocalist, keyboard player, Fela Kuti collaborator and afrobeat luminary, Dele Sosimi. ‘You No Fit Touch Am’ represents where Dele is today – something of an untouchable force in the music scene that he has always been such a vital part of. The title is an uncompromising message that this man means business, and with his mammoth Afrobeat Orchestra on board that is definitely the case. Recorded at the Fish Market Studios in North-West London by Benedic Lamdin (AKA Nostalgia 77) the album provides a musical representation of Dele’s strong socio-political opinions, as well as delivering classic song-writing that could have come straight out of 1970s Lagos.
