Sauti Sol’s Fancy Fingers Gives An Intimate Look At His Life In His Solo Debut ‘Father Studies’

Renowned Kenyan music producer and composer, Fancy Fingers, ¼ of celebrated music group Sauti Sol, has officially released his debut solo single ‘How I Met Your Mama’ off his upcoming debut album ‘Father Studies’.

This marks the start of his individual journey as a solo entertainer and singer. Written, sung and produced by Fancy Fingers, the new single is a heartfelt dedication to his son and a real life story, relaying how his Papa (Fancy Fingers) met his Mama.

Ahead of the release, Fancy Fingers said, “The song is a fusion of Kenyan and Burundian sounds and optics to show my son his roots. Because that is part of his identity,” adding “We need to tell African stories to our young ones. I chose to start from how I met my son’s mother, my wife. Conversations with my friends also proved that most of us don’t know the full story of how our parents met.”

For the first time, Fancy Fingers is taking us into an intimate journey into his artistry and life through striking self-composed sounds and visuals in a music video that features special cameos by Fancy Fingers’ wife Lady Mandy, their beloved son Sulwe and the celebrated Burundian drums, Ingoma.

The poetic single is an enticing entrée into Fancy Fingers’ 10-track upcoming body of work. He reveals, “FATHER STUDIES as a concept came to me after the birth of my son, while I was on paternity leave. I realized just how being fully present was impactful to my small family, it gave me the chance to develop a special bond with my son,” adding, “ It’s sad that the Kenyan law only gives two weeks leave to the father, leaving the chunk of the parenting to the mother, which should not be the case.”

He says, “My hope is to inspire young African Fathers to understand that dad is destiny. Your presence physically, but more so emotionally is what your child needs to be the best they can be in life.”

As reported by The Sauce, ‘Alone-Together’ is the second chapter of the life of Sauti Sol – the iconic Kenyan music group who will continue to serve their craft and brotherhood. It ties in the natural progression that each band member is experiencing, while still maintaining a cohesive unit.

The journey is a 4-part open letter to their fans and the world to enlighten them on who Sauti Sol (Savara, Chimano, Bien and Polycarp) really are; 4 phenomenal parts that make 1 iconic whole. Father Studies by Fancy Fingers, Bald Men Love Better by Bien- Aime, Savage Level by Savara and Heavy Is The Crown by Chimano are masterfully crafted musical and visual works that are sincere representations of them as world-class artists.
