Santi also known as Ozzy B was born Osayaba Andrew Ize-Iyamu on June 3rd 1992. Santi is an alternative rapper/singer from Nigeria who combines different genres of music to produce his unique sound. He grew up with a passion for music starting at an early age after listening to his dad’s old records.
He started off as an actor before officially starting music when he was 14. At the age of 18 he released D.O.A.L. (Diaries of a Loner) which became popular. This experience gave Santi a little taste of stardom. Santi cites “Drake” as a major influence on his music.
In 2013 Ozzy B released a 13 track EP called the Birth of Santi. The song “Gangsta Fear” features afro-fusion artist and producer Odunsi the Engine — its a blend of dancehall, afrobeats, and mellow, ’90s-tinged hip-hop production to deliver a laid back tune.
