Polycarp Otieno aka Fancy Fingers, acclaimed Kenyan music producer and composer, who is also a member of celebrated music group Sauti Sol has released a new single titled “Show Me Love” featuring the soulful South African singer-songwriter, Simmy.
The laid back release is a sonic masterpiece that pays homage to Kwaito - a genre that has hugely influenced the musical identity of Amapiano.
In a statement, Fancy Fingers said “It was such a great honor and absolute pleasure to meet Simmy earlier this year in Joburg. I sold her the dream I have of doing a project that features female artists only across the continent and she happily accepted to be part of it. We worked remotely after that and she has been very involved with every single detail regarding our song. Her sultry voice was perfect for jam and I believe we made a beautiful gem!”
“Show Me Love” is Fancy Fingers fourth solo single off his forthcoming album and follows his previous feel-good tracks “Ego”, “Far Away” and “One in a million”.
He is evidently not slowing down on his individual career, coming off Sauti Sol’s successful USA tour 2023 and recent recognition as Grammy Recording Academy of 2023.
In 2021, Fancy Fingers released his debut album FATHER STUDIES off Sauti Sol’s Along Together project. Showcasing his voice for the very first time as a recording artiste, his loyal fanbase got to see how multi-talented he really is as he shone his way right into the spotlight. Embracing the new side of artistry, he didn’t stop there and in 2022, came out with his next self-produced instrumental EP, ‘Potluck’ creating Afro Lo-Fi as a genre.
Fancy Fingers is also excited to announce the coming of his third solo project titled – Love Language.
The upcoming 9-track album has all-female features only including Karun (Kenya), Azawi (Uganda) and Bananas Overdose (Ethiopia).
The upcoming body of work tells the stories of love and cycle of love scenarios; from crushing on a love interest, to falling in love, to distance, ego manifesting, inevitable heartbreak, back to loneliness and wanting love all over again. 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.
