PerrryCurtis Elechi is an artist to watch out for in 2011. A graduate from Nottingham, he returned to Nigeria to chase his music career in Lagos. His first album self titled ‘PerryCurtis’, is a montage of afro-soul and RnB.

‘I Know’ off the EP is a rip roaring tribute to afro beat, a genre frequently identified with the legacy of Fela Kuti. The trumpet arrangement,solid percussions and his rootsy vocals are hypnotic. One can only imagine playing this at an outdoors or roof-top party, jamming into the night. A great step in the right direction for Nigerian afro-soul.
