’Only God Can Judge Me’ merges Afro-fusion and Drill elements for an equally vibey and profound listen.”- BILLBOARD Fresh from releasing their new ‘Headliner’ EP, their sold-out ROOTS AFRICATOUR and the announcement of their upcoming headline show at O2 Academy Brixton on Friday April 1st, the always innovative, six-piece east London, Afro-fusion collective NSG today unveil the must-see, sunny visual for their single ‘Suzanna’ ft Nigerian superstar Patoranking.
The JAE5-produced single is taken from NSG’s 3-track ‘Headliner’ EP which also features their defiant, single ‘Only God Can Judge Me’ ft Mist – which Billboard described as ‘vibey and profound’ - and sees them fusing their signature sound of laidback Afrobeats with UK and US Hip-Hop and R&B and tropical Caribbean influences, which has helped them to garner a staggering amount of streams and earned them a UK Top 10 and a slew of Top 40 hits
Speaking on ‘Suzanna’, NSG said:
“On ‘Suzanna’ we linked up with one of Nigeria and Africa’s greatest artists Patoranking to create this massive spiritual vibe. This is produced by JAE5 so you already know it’s a hit. Big up all the Suzannas world wide..”
Alongside their epic, sold-out ROOTS AFRICA TOUR which took place across Zambia, Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria and the release of their latest project which has amassed 7 million streams and earned them two UK Afrobeats Chart #1s, NSG also closed out 2021 with a nomination for ‘Best African Act’ at last year’s MOBO Awards where they brought an explosive performance of their hit single ‘Petite’.
Best described as a brotherhood, members Kruddz, Mxjib, Mojo, OGD, Dopeand Papii Abz were already consistently bringing major heat to the UK underground scene before bursting into the mainstream with their 2019 summer hit ‘Options’ and a subsequent string of infectious releases including ‘OT Bop’, ‘Lupita’ and ‘Kate Winslet’. Building on their runaway 2020 successes – including the pinnacle release of the mixtape ‘Roots’ which NMEdescribed as a project that ‘lives up to their chart-topping reputation’, making history as the first act to hit the #1 spot on the Official Afrobeats Chart, winning ‘Visual of the Year’ at the return of the MOBOs, as well as the impactful launch of staple The Area Bar in Accra, Ghana – NSG continue to strive to shine in their own lane, while pushing forward the Afro-inspired cultural scene they have passionately helped to pioneer.
Confirming their plans for global domination, NSG say ‘we’re not looking at a United Kingdom thing, we’re looking at a global thing.’ – and with more new music set to be released throughout the year, they are well on their way!
