NEWS: Little Simz shares ‘On Stage off Stage’ Documentary

Little Simz returns with a new documentary, ‘On Stage Off Stage,’ an open exploration of life on tour, providing a looking-glass into the inner workings of the rapturous performances and behind-the-scenes footage which are equal parts energised and intimate, Filmed and edited by Abu Dumbuya, viewers accompany Simz across her recent EU live shows, following the release of the critically lauded surprise album NO THANK YOU.

In the video Simz speaks directly to a young fan in Munich, saying: “Anything you want in this life, anything you want to become is possible. Just trust yourself and believe in yourself and you’ll do OK.”

Her 2021 album Sometimes I Might Be Introvert catapulted Simz into the big leagues, crashing into the top 5 of the albums charts, collecting Mercury Music Prize, Mobo, Ivor Novello and Brit Award wins and earning her the biggest live audiences yet in the UK and Europe.

Latest album, NO THANK YOU, released in December 2022 was described as, The best UK rap album of the year” by The Telegraph and is yet another delicious left field turn for 29-year old Simbiatu Ajikawo. Sleek, succinct and utterly propulsive, it’s Simz’ defiantly punk rock, two fingered salute to conformity and fame, and all the expectations and restrictions that come with it. Recorded with her regular collaborator Inflo, this is Simz at her most free, daring and spontaneous. Simz also has just announced there will be a physical release of NO THANK YOU on 16th June, pre-order here

Following the release of ‘NO THANK YOU‘,’ Simz shared a visionary short-film directed by acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Gabriel Moses. Most recently she performed ‘Heart On Fire‘ at the 76th British Academy Film Awards ceremony,  accompanied by Joan Armatrading as a surprise guest.

Simz is due to perform at this year’s Love Supreme festival along with Grace Jones, Emily Sandé and Thundercat. Little Simz | Official Store
