Sauti Sol have officially dropped their first single ‘Suzanna’ under Universal Music.
“Suzanna” which is the first track in their upcoming album dubbed ‘Midnight train’, tackles the controversial phenomenon of sponsors/blessers.
The band uses clever irreverent lyrics and sharp wit to poke fun at a woman who is a beneficiary of the champagne life as sponsored by an older man.
“I see you in London.. silicone in your bum bum.. shaking what your doctor gave you… You change your skin colour and your hair is longer now. Then I see you in Paris standing next to the Champs Elysees looking sexy in a mini skirt “ are part of the lyrics
Suzanna video which was directed by Leke Alabi-Isama was shot in Nigeria and is based in a 70s disco ball set up.
Sauti Sol’s Bien termed the song as a comic relief that is a reminder of the good old days.
“It’s more comic relief judging by how they are styled in the 70s disco ball chic complete with puffy colourful men blouses, large ‘fros and perms. ‘It’s also a reminder of the good ole days of how stylish Africans were.” Said Bien
In just an hour, the song has already garnered over 60k views on Youtube.
