Victor Buyuka also known as Icy Lando’s artistic journey is one of hard work and persistence. Growing up in Nairobi, Kenya, the rapper, singer and producer teams up with multi-platinum selling artist Sean Kingston on his pulsing club hit “Options”.
Filled with ferocious melodies and pounding drum patterns, “Options” is an artful display of Icy’s passion for music. Produced by UK based producer Blanq Beatz, Icy collaborates with one of his musical icons to create a track overflowing with summer soaked rhythms.
Before making it as a solo act, Icy had had quite the journey to developing his talent. Discovering a passion for music through his sister, Icy joined his high school choir and band – later competing in music festivals annually. Eventually joining the Kenyan Boys Choir, the artist found the time to nourish his musical talent and create a sound that is truly unique.
Speaking about his admiration for Kingston, Icy recounts “In 2007 when Sean Kingston released ‘Beautiful Girls‘, I had just joined our high school band and we did a rendition of the song”, Icy recounts. “I loved the vibe of the track and it inspired me to be an artist. Thirteen years later and I have the privilege to release a single with my idol. Sean Kingston’s music has influenced me throughout my journey and I am so excited for everyone to listen to this single.”
