J Hus has announced via Twitter that he won’t be doing any more shows for the next three or four years, potentially longer.

Coming out of prison in April this year, J Hus released JAE5 collaboration ‘Must Be’ last month, a joyous track aimed at his enemies.

“I will never do a tour again in my life,” he wrote, to the dismay of his fans, adding: “You won’t see me but at least you’ll hear me.”

The trailblazing afrobeats pioneer released standout album ‘Common Sense’ in 2017, widely regarded as the sound of London at that time, and has made a number of high-profile live appearances despite being banned from performing in his hometown at one time.

J Hus also explained he wouldn’t be doing any more features after his forthcoming album, but was keen to work with Burna Boy and 21 Savage.
