UK based music star Saskilla unveils the stunning music video "Yonder", his brand new hit single, released via GSpace15. The video was directed by Will Tribble & George Burt and shot in the London underground. The uplifting and rock-influenced song was produced by David Anthony and inspired by a real life story.

"The concept of 'Yonder' is meant to be a person's perspective of the world around them and how the pain and suffer changes and disappears only when you change first," explains Saskilla, who penned the song after a close friend committed suicide.

Saskilla is hailed as the next breakthrough superstar in the UK, following the path of Tinie Tempah, and Dizzee Rascal. The extravangarde emcee first emerged on the music scene in 2004, developing as an artist on the same renowned underground circuit that has already bred musical successes of Tinie, Dizzee, and Chipmunk.

It was during these years that Saskilla teamed up with Richie Montana to form the fashion savvy urban collective Nu Brand Flexxx, which most significantly nurtured the career of UK superstar Tinie Tempah. Saskilla is personally credited in his Multi-Platinum selling debut album "Disc-Overy".

In 2007, as the front man of Nu Brand, Saskilla saw the group’s first single, "Gash By The Hour", to a No.1 chart position for 17 consecutive weeks on leading urban music television channel AKA.

This achievement placed Saskilla and Nu Brand firmly on the map, securing performances in some of the biggest clubs across Europe and supporting former Def Jam artist and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Lady Sovereign at a line up of gigs.

Dizzee Rascal called upon Saskilla in making a cameo appearance in the video to his biggest selling single "Dance Wiv Me" in 2008, which topped the chart for 4 weeks at No.1.

Besides his musical pathway, Saskilla has made a varying scope of television appearances. He appeared and performed on BBC News night in connection with the 2010 UK General Election and in 2007 he starred in Channel 4's first of a kind interacted drama series "Dubplate Drama".

Saskilla has modelled for a number of major brands Adidas, Nike and Bathing Ape who were keen to position their urban clothing against his cool and charismatic character.

In 2010, Saskilla wrote and recorded the hook and leading verse for "Runway", a single that would elevate Nu Brand above the monotony of the competition and massively increase awareness of the collective. With over 810k views on YouTube and regular support across radio and television, Saskilla proved he single-handedly has what it takes to hit the mainstream.

Now, Saskilla is set to hit the UK market as a mainstream act. His debut solo single "Yonder" is already receiving blockbuster praise and the music video is pure fire!
