K1 De Ultimate unveils fuji The Sound EP, drops Awade
Considered a legend of Fuji music, King Wasiu Ayinde Marshal, also known by the moniker, K1 De Ultimate, has unveiled a new project, which is titled, Fuji the Sound EP.
K1 has seen it all in his 50-year plus career, enjoying critical and commercial success home and abroad in a career span that has taken him from young upstart in 1970 to an African cultural authority.
The EP, which comprises six songs, is a product of two years of tweaking and experimentation across languages and forms. It is catalysed by 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. Fuji the Sound EP will arrive on August 21.
