Over a period of 15 years, Smallgod has dabbled in the African music industry as the plug, a connector, artist manager and publisher and now, artist. Expanding his skill and talent in A&R earlier this year, Smallgod released his debut album, “Building Bridges”- an offering that connects Africa and the African diaspora through music. The streetwear enthusiast and culture connoisseur is taking a leap of faith and leading a charge for pan-Africanism through music.
Raised between Ghana, London and the Netherlands, Smallgod, also known as Nana Appiasei, became exposed to different cultures and music at an early age. Plus a wanderlust which led him to North and South America, Smallgod has developed an expansive taste in music which cuts across cultures and genres. Entrenched and involved with fashion and streetwear, Smallgod has been involved with Daily Paper, the Netherland based streetwear brand which has all contributed to an ability to blend various sonic styles of Africa and the diaspora on the afro-fusion album.
Following a successful year with the Building Brigde’s album racking up 10m+ streams across DSPs – Smallgod is preparing to give us the Christmas soundtrack, titled 2000 curated alongside, South & West African royalty Major League Djz & Guiltybeatz and vocaled by 4PLAY (NSG’s) new recruit WES7AR 22 and the face of Amapiano music Uncle Vinny. 2000 gives us all the elements of an Amapiano banger!
