Produced by BeatsbyKarma, ‘Gold‘ is a radio-friendly pop single that finds a chilled Ycee delivering his verses with a perfect blend of melodic rap with a polished flow. He also delievers a repetitive but catchy hook that gives the record its hit-potential. It is an unapologetic celebration of his lifestyle and affluence that will resonate with a lot of his fans and music lovers.

“Someday, the gold you were depending on to have your back on rainy days – might peel and reveal its true self; coated steel.

Some days, the pain might be so unbearable that it makes you question your process, doubt yourself and get all up in your feels.

Even when you are oppressed by society, law enforcement, government, label executives, Lagos traffic 😒, or even friends from hell and it makes you question your sanity or sink to unfamiliar depths.

Through it all, the most important thing remains – you are the “Gold”, you are Gold. Forged at the elevent hour despite all the heat and tribulations.

You must never ever forget, Gold never depreciates.” He wrote on Instagram

The video is expected to be released next week, so watch this space for it.

The wait is finally over! Santi has released his highly-anticipated debut album titled “Mandy & The Jungle“. This comes three years after his acclaimed EP “Suzie’s Funeral“, which placed Santi in the radar of many as one of those to hold the helm of the industry in a few years.

Further speaking about the album, he reveals that “Over the past two years, I learnt more about expressing myself and translating that feeling into sound and visuals. Music has always been about the feeling for me, what it does to you, what it makes you remember, and most importantly where it takes you to. I decided to create a universe, combining everything that has ever influenced or inspired me.”

The songs are a soundtrack to this universe, and I hope when you listen to ‘Mandy & The Jungle’, you will make the best memories with them so that each time you feel like escaping, reminiscing or feeling, these songs are here to take you to your own universe.” He continued.

So cop this album, and follow Mandy on her journey in the jungle.
