Wauve releases his latest offering ‘Fee Fi Fo’ via Virgin EMI/Lost Ones. The addictive, self-produced track samples Ne-Yo’s chart-topping hit ‘So Sick’ and is one of the very few songs to be given approval by Ne-Yo and Stargate for sample use.

Complimented with slick visuals directed by Suave (whose credits include FredoM HunchoD Block Europe and more), ‘Fee Fi Fo’ served as Robert Bruce’s (Capital Xtra) Homegrown Track Of The Day.

Wauve further shares:

“Im really excited about this record. Kinda explains alot of things I’m experiencing as I’m starting my music career. BIG shout out to the legends Ne-yo and Stargate for giving the go ahead on this one. Giving a kid from north London the opportunity to express myself”

Signed to Virgin EMI’s Lost Ones imprint, Wauve, who’s unique blend of R&B-infused afrobeat draws from his East African background has already begun to gain attention with previous releases including ‘Stay Dreamin’ which featured Yungen and T Mulla on the remix.

The resulting sound is a unique blend that fuses the Eritrean music that he heard from his parents, with the pop sensibilities he picked up from watching Top Of The Pops, the R&B songs that he hoarded on his MP3 player and the Southern trap beats that inspired the beginning of his career. “My melodies are more R&B,” he explains of the fusion, “and I’m East African so I’m more pentatonic with the scales. I’m from the other side of the continent to most of the popular afrobeat artists, so I’m bringing something different to it.”
