Wax has donned the ribbon on his best work yet, the semi-biographical album ‘African dream’, to be released in July 2009. In the album, he tells stories of love and war, drawing blood from afropessimists, celebrating love with beautiful urban soul rhythms, and strengthening his appeal as a humanitarian activist. Listeners can expect to experience a Wax again reinvented, delivering a conservative yet universal urban sound that will entrance listeners for ages to come. The first single from the album, “Miss Real, Mr Regular’ is quickly becoming a sing-along in many parts of the world: it defines Wax’ unique vocal charm, and is sure to mark the rise of one of the world’s finest soul singers. Think Joan Amatrading meets The Cure. With a youthful, contemporary touch of Africa.
"My new album is African Dream, and that is what it’s all about. The fact that you could see a child on TV and this child is desperate and hungry. Yes the child does need food, but it doesn’t end there, that child, has a brain that could produce a business idea like Facebook, that could build a plane, that child could be anything because a child has that ability," he said.
