Internationally acclaimed Afrobeat artist Wisdom has recently released their debut album “(Not) Just a Man” and injected plenty of organic soul onto the airwaves.
(Not) Just a Man has already reached the tops of the charts in Nigeria, and the exotic rhythms are sure to enamour anyone in the search for vibrant, flowing Afropop in colder climates too.
With each track being infectiously euphoric and glistening with sun-kissed soul, each track stands as a testament to their versatility. With elements of R&B, Afro Pop, Jazz, Afro-Soul and Afro House all utilised under a deft rhythmic command, there’s a smorgasbord of different sticky-sweet textures to delve into. Yet, we’d recommend hitting play on the punchy energetic earworm which is “Zombie” for the best introduction to Wisdom’s magnetic sound.
