Within Africa's exciting new wave of alternative artists, there are few as captivating as Santi.. His genre-bending sound and non-conformist style have made him one of the most thrilling artists to watch in the Nigerian music scene.
After the massive success of "Rapid Fire" featuring Shane Eagle and Amaarae last year, the rising Nigerian artist is back with yet another contagious single. "Sparky" is the seductive and whine-able track that you need to get your weekend started.
The song was produced by his alté scene counterpart, Odunsi the Engine, with additional production from Le Mav. The track had been premiered on Apple Music's OVO Sound Radio in May last year and fans have been waiting eagerly for its release since then.
As he gears up to release his forthcoming album in the next couple of months, Santi continues to dish out impeccable content. He teased the soon to be released self-directed music video for 'Sparky' on his Instagram and we can't wait for the full clip.
This song is the ideal weekend starter. Listen to "Sparky" by Santi below.
The semi-gospel beauty features talented Kenyan singers Sage, Sara Mitaru , Wambura Mitaru and Lisa Oduor-Noah.
The brand new music video for the single sparks a lot of nostalgia, opening with the words of legendary veteran Kenyan media guru, Leonard Mambo Mbotela, "Je huu ni ungwana?"The heartwarming visuals capture the essence of Nairobi—religion, art, family, hustle and more.
"A lot of things in my life inspired 'Mungu Halali'. Like the times when you feel you are not really going to make it and then somehow it happens that you pull through. It's a song of thanksgiving. I have just seen the hand of the good Lord in my life even when I thought that I didn't deserve that shot," says Blinky on e-mail.
