History: (Marvel Premiere I#51) - N'Gasi was accompanying his monarch King T'Challa (the Black Panther) and security chief Taku in a limousine to the recently-opened Wakanda Consulate in New York. N'Gasi was outraged to see that non-Wakandan moving staff were transporting articles of furniture inside the Consulate despite Consulate staffer Omoro's attempts to dissuade them. N'Gasi considered the movers' handling of the Wakandan articles a sacrilege and noted T'Challa had to punish them. While T'Challa informed the movers that they were endangering their lives by touching the articles, the movers ignored him - until Taku and N'Gasi drew their guns. The terrified movers fled.

Just as the movers exited, the costumed figure Windeagle attacked the Black Panther on the consulate grounds. N'Gasi and Taku aided their king by unpacking a net from the moving boxes on the lawn and using it to snare Windeagle.

Comments: Created by Ed Hannigan, Jerry Bingham and Gene Day.

N'Gasi sure looks a lot like N'Yaga and he turns up alongside Taku, just as N'Yaga had in the previous story (Black Panther I#15). It might've been a scripting error or then again they could be brothers?
