Listen to Santi's Addictive New Single 'Freaky' Featuring Bridge & Nonso Amadi

This track is badass, laid-back and highly addictive.

Nigerian artist Santi first got on our radar with his refreshing afro-dancehall track "Gangsta Fear," featuring new wave artist Odunsi the Engine, in 2016.

His genre-bending sound and non-conformist style have made him one of the most thrilling artists to watch in the Lagos music scene.

"Freaky," the new single from his forthcoming project, has a sinister edge to it. For the song, Santi enlists his Lagos-based emcee BRIDGE on the hook while Nonso Amadi's heartbreak-laden vocals smoothen up the rugged feel of track.


Santi's hypnotic dancehall-like delivery floats effortlessly over the dense and seductive beat produced by fellow Monster Boy, Genio. Overall this track is badass, laid-back and highly addictive.

Check out Santi's brand new single "Freaky" below and purchase it here.

You're definitely going to have this one on repeat this week.
