The song has strong American influences with the T-Pain style auto tuned chorus and the synth which provides the melody all the way through the track. The drums are possibly the most African part of the instrumental as a whole, though the beat isn’t what you’d normally expect in an afrobeats song. Overall it is probably best described as pop rap with an African twist.
If you’re the kind of person that likes to boast, brag and generally spout stories that sound about as real as Katie Price’s breasts then this track may prove offensive. ‘Wash Wash’ does a brilliant job of ridiculing the sort of people from whose lips bull flows freely.
elDee has some brilliant one liners in this track such as ‘I don dey follow Messi play before’ (yeah right love!) Yet it actually touches on some more serious issues, such as the false preacher epidemic that has been sweeping Africa and looks to be going nowhere. You should definitely have a listen not simply for the music but for the comical value, because it will probably remind you of someone that you know who likes to ‘wash’* just that little bit too much!
*Wash – [verb] to coat inferior metal with a film of silver or gold from a solution.
