Cruel Santino Plans To Release Two New Singles Later This Month

Cruel Santino, a Nigerian alternative singer, took to Instagram today to promote the release of two new singles in October. The new singles will be included in his King Of The Bounce project, which will be published on October 27, 2023. “Holiday Sniping” and “The Vatican: Superb Artistry,” featuring Slater and LOLA, are the anticipated songs.

Osayaba Ize-Iyamu, also known as Cruel Santino, may appear to be an unusual name in the Nigerian music community. Cruel Santino, like most of his contemporaries, has grown to fame as one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation, because to the growth of the Alte music community – a confraternity of radical genre-benders – inside the Nigerian music industry.

The 30-year-old singer, composer, and producer, with albums like 2016’s Suzie’s Funeral, 2019’s Mandy and the Jungle, and 2022’s Subaru Boys, among others, has greatly influenced the musical shift within the Nigerian music landscape. Cruel Santino, commonly known as “Santi,” continues to inspire the same radicalism and creativity that support his discography with his releases, particularly to the Gen-Z generation.

Santino is also a member of the Monster Boys collective, which also includes the musicians GMK and Genio Bambino. In association with Warner Chappell Music, Monster Boy, and Love Renaissance, he has also proudly signed with Interscope Records.
