The song “AZUNGA” is a fine blend of Pop, RnB, Highlife, Afro-jazz, and Afro-hip-hop genres that sets the track and artist well apart from the main stream Afro-hip-hop movement.
NAT – ‘The-Bass-King’ a.k.a AZUNGA Master, is a fast rising Nigerian singer/songwriter and bass maestro. Hailing from Akwa Ibom state and born in the city of Calabar, AZUNGA Master first got involved with music as a drummer at the age of 5yrs, but fell in love with the Bass guitar at age 7yrs. Born with a passion to make music and driven by the hunger to explore more possibilities of musical expression, he decided to explore his singing abilities to enhance the interpretation of his music as a bassist.
He describes his passion for music as “something he picked up in his infant age” from his time in the church choir.
Nat was Educated at Stars Maritime Academy (SMA) and Federal College Of Fisheries and Marine Technology (FCFMT) where he studied Nautical Science, and graduated as a Naval Personnel.
Still whilst he studied, the voice behind the song “AZUNGA” grew as a musician. He’s successfully carved out a distinct sound that is unique, unmistakable & spiced with deep rooted African melody.
His love for music and dedication to his craft gave him the opportunity to play for such Nigerian Artists like Tee Mac, Banky W, Wizkid, Jesse Jagz, and Jaywon, but also sharing the stage with some of planet earth’s greatest like Angie Stone, Beautiful Nubia, Richard Bona, Jimmy Dludlu, Gerald Albright, Mike Stern and many more.
