NSG, the Afro-fusion collective, has finally released its much-anticipated debut album titled "Area Boyz". With this album, they celebrate "10 Years of NSG" as the pioneers of the Afroswing genre that has dominated the music charts and speakers for the last few years. The 19-track album features 17 previously unheard songs, including collaborations with some of the most exciting acts from across the world such as French rapper MHD, Nigerian music sensations Seyi Vibez and Odumodublvck, Ghanaian Hip-Hop act Sarkodie, Cameroonian-American breakout star Libianca, UK homegrown acts Aitch and Tion Wayne, and long-time collaborator JAE5.
NSG's signature sound is a fusion of laidback Afrobeats with UK and US Hip-Hop and tropical Caribbean inflections, which is instantly recognizable. The group has produced some of the most irresistible chart smashes by matching underground production tropes with fantastic songwriting. Recently, the group played a special show in London, and now they have revealed their plans for their debut album.
