George Nozuka Singing Such A Fool
Nozuka released his debut album Believe in 2007 under the mononym George. The album was produced by Perry Alexander, Roy "Royalty" Hamilton, and Anthony M. Jones, and was released by HC Entertainment Group. Three tracks became hits: "Talk to Me" (written and produced by Shaun Myers), "Lie to Me", and "Last Time". Music videos for the songs were directed by RT! and appeared on the charts of Canada's specialized music cable channel MuchMusic.
In 2012, Nozuka released a mixtape titled Love Me. For the mixtape and later works, he began using his full name. In 2013, he released a studio album called Beautiful, along with a music video for the first single from the album, called "Don't Go".
Through the Canadian section of Plan, Nozuka was involved in a documentary about restavecs, slave children in Haiti. The documentary, Forgotten Children: The Story of Haiti's Restavecs, directed by Craig Goodwill, shows the situation of the restavecs through the eyes of various personalities, including Nozuka, a Canadian United Nations peacekeeper, Haitian filmmakers and activists, and former restavecs themselves. Nozuka produced the song "Hurting Child" for the documentary.
