While most know him as one of the leaders of Nigeria's growing alté scene, Santi has also proven himself a talented music video director, having directed several of his own music videos, including "Freaky" and "Rapid Fire" as well as Odunsi's "Alté Cruise."

Now, the artist is directing the music video for Goldlink's single "U Say," from his latest album Diaspora. It's truly a "diaspora" affair, as the song is produced by British-Ghanaian producer Juls, and also features Tyler the Creator and Jay Prince.

Goldlink shared an image on Twitter of a clapperboard that listed Santi's name under director over the weekend, hinting that the video would be coming out soon. Santi shared the same picture, calling it a "historic moment."

They're not the only ones celebrating Santi's artistic feat, either. Frequent collaborator and fellow alté star Odunsi, shared an image of Goldlink, Santi and Tyler together, writing "ah. man i'm actually shedding tears. real alté tears."

This isn't the first time that Goldlink and Santi have teamed up. Santi released his much-anticipated debut album Mandy & the Jungle last year, and Goldlink appears on the track "Maria."

Goldlink's Diaspora, features several artists from the continent, including Maleek Berry on the standout Zulu as well as Wizkid on the track "No Lie". With his many collaborations, the artist is staying true to the album's theme of highlighting connections between artists from across the diaspora.

With Santi spearheading, we're excited to see the finished product. We'll keep you posted for when the video drops. For now listen to "U Say" below.

Cameroon Holds Vigil to Remember Children Killed in School Attack

Residents in Kumba paid their respects to the seven lives lost, and those injured during the attack over the weekend.

In the latest tragedy to come from Cameroon's historically violent clash between Anglo and Francophone citizens, seven children were murdered after attackers stormed a school with guns and machetes over the weekend.

In what has been deemed as the "darkest and saddest day," by Bishop Agapitus Nfon of Kumba, armed attackers stormed the Mother Francisca International Bilingual Academy, targeting students aged 9 to 12. The tragic event saw dozens of children injured, some critically.

The attack has shocked the nation, with both local and international agencies condemning the horrible offense. On Monday, Cameroonian President Paul Biya denounced the "horrific murder" of the school children, and alluded to the "appropriate measures" being taken in order to bring justice to the families of the victims. Prime Minister Dion Ngute Joseph shared his condolences via a tweet saying, "I bow before the memory of these innocent kids."

The Cameroonian presidency and governing body have blamed Anglophone 'separatists' for the attack, though the group claims no part in the attack.

Human rights groups, however, have blamed both opposing parties, as the conflict has led to the death of over 3,000 deaths and resulted in more than 700,000 Cameroonians fleeing their homes and the country.
