When young act Worlasi released his 13-track Nusɛ mixtape exactly a year ago, he had barely been recognized. Established urban channels were yet to pick up his works.

At the time, his aides spent time pacing the corridors of conventional and emerging media units. They spoke to every single, forward-looking cable programme head or switcher. They chased them. Online, they constantly pushed and passed on useful artiste notes, sometimes sharing press kits established acts at the time didn’t have its quality. Where it was necessary, they trekked to deliver the mixtape.

From get-go, both act and team (if still intact) have been serious about this thing he calls a trade, so it makes perfect sense they are getting to enjoy what is an understandable publicity clamour that has made Worlasi a pub talk item.

A year after the leg work, he’s managed to remain relevant. It is hard to even call him upcoming; he is what your established act aspires to be. If your favourite singer/rapper/composer/producer is the Nkrumah Circle water fountain, Worlasi is the Burj Khalifa.

On the evening of Wednesday September 29, he released Nukata (a Nusɛ anniversary song) to instant acclaim. It is already being called awesome.

In the video for Nukata (full review coming up on this website), Worlasi screeches into something more than what you get to see in Desiigner’s July 22 Tiimmy Turner.

Aided by a prepped ass that pussyfoots the entire 3 minutes, 10 seconds video in a manner that can inspire indecisive, motion-less, hungry pants to rise to instant-full fame, the look and feel is equally complimented by the toned-abs Worlasi who adds so much colour to the visuals.

Directors Bismark Aryee and Bamie Lam-Me of Filifili may have had a good time shooting the video (it tells in the output). Nukata easily sits at the heart of a loose-talk yet serious night out conversation of penniless men on fat-butts, and money-inspired ladies.

But when the video breaks away from all of that, there is a certain Worlasi, who feeds on the solo scenes to show the hard knocks he’s made of; there is that street strong driven, led-on swag that has traces of EDM, it pleases the eye, it soothes the ear.

Worlasi’s mannerisms in the Nukata video is one that shouts attitude than trying to be an uninspiring saint. So beautifully it comes when he switches in between the flecks, there is abundant evidence he is no fake Sheikh.

Freed from the normal outdoor atmospheric scenes, this relies on a strict studio setting which isn’t disengaged, and zany.

Nukata puts Worlasi in a comfortable place; it is pretty why he carries through – effortlessly – the sexually explicit scenes in the video. Staying away from all the drooping young man-lady, money-vomiting, near face-sitting moments, he opts for repeated lines of boasts centered on sex. While at it, he ad-libs his non-synthetic consonants in a tone that is wee harsh-sounding but sweet, and slices them into noises that stick to the same Worlasi in One Life (featuring Sena Dagadu).

A statement is made with the Nukata video, the thought of it being shot on low budget doesn’t even cross the mind. And while the song hits you as an infectious piece of work from a curio, the video lends itself an extended vibe and argument that insists it can’t be called inscrutable. Certainly not.
