EA Wave gives a new twist to Ami Faku’s most popular hits
EA (East African) Wave, a collective of 5 talented producer/DJs from Kenya, has reimagined South Africa’s Ami Faku’s best hits in a new EP. The collective is made up of Ukweli, Sichangi, NuFvnk, Hiribae and Jinku.
EA Wave’s collaboration with Ami Faku cements Africa’s rise in cross-continental collaborations. EA Wave reimagines Ami Faku in the 5-track EP featuring some of Ami’s top and most beloved tracks freshly redone including Love Drunk (Ukweli Remix), Ebhayi (Jinku Remix), Mbize (NuFvnk Remix), Ungowami (Sichangi Remix) and Ndikhethe Wena (Hiribae Remix).
South African powerhouse and modern Afro-soul singer Ami Faku has had a remarkable rise in SA’s music industry. In a short period Ami has been adorned with Platinum and Gold announcements for 3 singles from Imali—her debut album, 2 Platinum singles for collaborations and has recently won the coveted Best Female Award at the 2020 South AfricanMusic Awards (SAMA), as well as wowing audiences with a phenomenal performance at the ceremony.
Ami said this about working with the music and art collective hailing from Nairobi, Kenya, “I love what EA Wave has done with the music and I can’t wait for everyone to hear the EP,” adding, “It’s always been a dream of mine to expand my music across the continent.”
While redefining the sound of East Africa, the group continues to produce progressive fresh sounds in collaboration with a cross section of versatile artists beyond the region. Their coming together with Ami Faku is in line with their Modus Operandi.
