New Music: Nizzy – Girl



After the success of his brilliant collaboration “Egwu” with Lola Rae, which garnered over 40,000 downloads in its first week and was playlisted on Channel O, SoundCity and Silverbird TV among others, fast-rising UK-based Afrobeats crooner NIZZY is back with a brand new single for our listening pleasure titled “Girl”, produced by Ritzybeat.

Drawing upon trademark Highlife and Makosa sensibilities, “Girl” sees Nizzy coming firmly into his own as a solo stars, with his commanding vocals and infectious flow, over the Ritzybeat-produced exquisite musical backdrop led by lush drums and synth-heavy keyboard arrangements. Falling in love with a girl and wanting to take her to your mum never sounded so good with Nizzy’s “Girl”.

Touted as one to watch for 2014, Nizzy has continued to highlight his credentials as one of the most exciting new UK-based artists on the Nigerian music scene. From a critically acclaimed live performance at the renowned Jazz Café last month to massive co-signs from the likes of Wazobia FM, Raypower and DJ JamJam to an all-star remix of “Drumstick” on the way, Nizzy is coming of age in 2014.
