NELE (also stylized as Nele Worldwide) is a 23-year-old South African musician and producer from Johannesburg South.
His musical style is influenced by a range of genres, including traditional Hip Hop, Soul and UK Drill. NELE credits Kanye West as his muse because of his ability to break boundaries and pioneer new music.
Nele Worldwide has released his 12 track LP which features Naye Ayla, LimRinse, Xenlaii and Smanga OG to name a few.
The release follows his four singles; Groove, TOR, Columbine Drive and Hot Shot.
Nele describes his debut LP, EXILE as an introspection of self. An infusion of rich themes that explore adversity, loss, pain and joy. EXILE in essence is a coming of age project of the artist as he transitions into a new phase. The project is an open invitation, to listeners to share and explore topics that are universal and connect us all.
The project showcases thought-provoking raps riding on groovy and mellow Hip-Hop and Trap beats, with a touch of R&B.
