Suté Iwar and Kadiata – “STAR PLAYER” lyric video

“‘STAR PLAYER’ is a song about embracing the unknown and finding your path. It’s about shining bright in adversity, even during difficult times. The lyrics encourage listeners to stretch out and explore while staying true to themselves.” – Suté Iwar explained

‘STAR PLAYER’ contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and a laidback vibration that will resonate well with fans of Tay Iwar, Tim lyre, Prettyboy D-O, and Finn Foxell. The chill tune possesses thudding drum-laden instrumentation flavored with Afro-fusion, indie-soul, and UK hip-hop elements. The bAd entity production is cohesive, sleek, and lustrous, providing the perfect background for both artists to tell their stories. Furthermore, “STAR PLAYER” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Suté Iwar’s forthcoming debut album, entitled, “ULTRALIGHT.” The project is set to be released on the 21st of April via London and Johannesburg-based label, Outer South.

‘ULTRALIGHT’ is set under the guise of a fictional Netflix documentary about his life. Suté explores space, sound, love, and lust through this 15-track album, which features a star-studded lineup from West Africa and the UK, including WurlD, Lex Amor, and Kadiata, Twelve VII, and Sutés brother, Tay Iwar. Furthermore, “ULTRALIGHT” is a half self-care, half immeasurable flex, and it places Suté in the lineage of Afro-fusion artists that have successfully broken into the UK landscape.

Sutés musical influences include the likes of Childish Gambino, Kendrick Lamar, and Anderson .Paak and, closer to home, the likes of Fela Kuti and Majek Fashek, whose music and stories have transfixed him and given him the confidence to experiment with sounds and expression.

Suté refuses to conform with his latest single proving his versatility by blending elements of R&B, rap, alté, Afro, funk, and beyond. Sutés’ voice sounds as unaffected and assured singing as it does rapping with his first release, “JUDAH LION,” featuring WurlD. The song received support from Dotty on Apple Music and it was featured on Spotify’s Global R&B Weekly playlist and secured heavy airplay across Nigeria.

Suté Iwar is one of three sons whose musical education started very early. Comparable to the Marley brothers, they remain close collaborators, often writing, producing, and featuring on each other’s music. From 7 years old, Suté attended classical music school and played multiple instruments, including the saxophone, which led him to perform in numerous bands and events as a teenager.

Suté’s parents are music lovers with eclectic tastes. They introduced him to jazz, soul, and Pop music alongside traditional West African music, which has undoubtedly influenced the genre-fluid sound we witness today. His father remains his biggest critic and Suté emphasizes that despite his diverse influences, soul music is always at the heart of what he creates, often mingling the exquisite with the sensual.
