“One of the true giants of African music” (Q Magazine) went back to his roots for his seventh album, No Place for My Dream, to “[continue] his musical attack on corruption, oppression and squandered wealth in Nigeria” (The Guardian). Femi returned to the same studio in which he produced his debut, Shoki Shoki, to create a slice of Afrobeat in its purest form: unpolished, aggressive and filled with punk energy. Expect “energetic big band arrangements, a theatrical backup chorus and Femi out front wailing from the heart and giving hope to the voiceless” (Boston Globe).
