Say’hu talks English football, touring in Africa and upcoming new music


Saihou Ceesay, better known by his stage name Say’hu, is a Gambian American hip-hop recording artist from Charlotte, N.C. After first receiving recognition in 2012, following the quiet release of his 2012-debut mixtape The Other Side, Say’hu released his very first visual to standout track “Motherland” which eloquently paints a picture of Africa, casting an unflinching eye on its troubled past and current circumstances.

On his 21st birthday, Say’hu released his second effort, Living Room Sessions, in 2013 and has released a number of distinguised singles in “L.I.F.E (Living Is Free Existence),” “Summer Came Early” and most recently “One A Dem.”

The Gambian born, Charlotte bred recording artist is on the come-up and a name to look out for int he regional scene. From packed college auditoriums to local venues, he’s shared the stage with artists such as G-Eazy, Diabolic, and Ghana’s own Sarkodie.

With the pragmatic detachment of today’s DIY, socially mediated industry, his undeniable gift as a musician promises a long and successful future.
