Saihou Ceesay, better known by his stage name Say’hu (pronounced Say-who), is a Gambian American hip-hop recording artist based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Say’hu first received recognition in 2012, following the quiet release of his 2012-debut mixtape The Other Side. Shortly after the release of 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 EP, in 2013.
His music stresses many issues including: capitalism, poverty, war and is often loaded with witty metaphors and heart felt messages with which everyone can relate. With his musical roots being in Hip Hop, and most important source of inspiration, he cites artist such as 2-Pac, Jay-Z, J. Cole, K’naan & Fugees as key influences in his own pursuit of musical recognition.
For his newest opus, Say’hu keeps it in the same vein, leading the charge with his standout single “One A Dem,” which comes paired with an accompanying visual. The defiant single exudes confidence at the highest level, allowing Say’hu to plant his stance firmly in the ground without coming across as conceited or overbearing. Providing just a small taste of what They Speaking To Me has to offer, Say’hu impresses with the 10-track opus as he delivers a concise, perspicacious LP.
They Speaking To Me is available on iTunes now.
