Abuja-based afro-fusion virtuoso Suté Iwar presents ‘Judah Lion’, a stunning dynamic R&B infusion alongside Wurld, and the first single from his forthcoming debut album ULTRALIGHT, on London and Johannesburg-based label Outer South, Sute Iwar With Wurld.
‘Judah Lion’ is an ethereal homage to a love interest and an exclamation of wonder at her beauty. Drowned in bitter-sweet emotion, laden with reverb and cavernous space, it’s skittering, almost lazy beat, produced by Suté, gives way to impossible swing and heart-wrenching poly melodies.
It follows Suté’s acclaimed single ‘alright, ok’, released in May and his only solo release of 2022, which saw support from the likes of Native Mag, More Branches and Breakroom Africa. Suté recently released the ambitious, ethereal visuals for fan favourite Pulp Fiction, taken off his last mixtape 199X, alongside recent collaborations with Tim Lyre, Basi Azul and Bankyondbeatz.

Suté has spent the past year building his debut album ULTRALIGHT, which will see the light of day in early 2023 and features a star-studded lineup from West African and British talent, including the likes of Tim Lyre, Lex Amor, Kadiata, Raytheboffin, Tay Iwar, and Twelve XII. Sute Iwar With Wurld
In Suté’s words: “I started making this song during the winter in London thinking about what advice I would give to myself if I got close to everything I wished for, including my dream girl.”
‘Judah Lion’ was mixed and mastered by Grammy award winning engineer Sam Harper (Wizkid, Tion Wayne, Juls).
