A Fuji alcbum. Nothing to do with Japanese cameras or Lauren Hill; Fuji is one of the most popular styles of Nigerian music, sounding sort of like Hi-Life with caffeine added. Here we have a collection of straight-down-the-line exhortions to praise and worship, along with medleys of some popular Nigerian choruses which have been translated from Yoruba into English.

He comes across better live than he does here, though; the energy of his performance and Fuji music itself doesn't really come through on this.
