Icy Lando’s artistic journey is one of hard work and persistence. Growing up in Nairobi, Kenya, the rapper, singer and producer teams up with Multi-Platinum Selling Artist Sean Kingston on his pulsing club hit ‘Options’.
Filled with ferocious melodies and pounding drum patterns, ‘Options’ is an artful display of Icy’s passion for music. Produced by UK based producer Blanq Beatz, Icy collaborates with one of his musical icons to create a track overflowing with summer soaked rhythms.
Discovering a passion for music through his sister, Icy joined his high school choir and band – later competing in music festivals annually. Eventually joining the Kenyan Boys Choir, the artist found the time to nourish his musical talent and create a sound that is truly unique.
“In 2007 when Sean Kingston released ‘Beautiful Girls‘, I had just joined our high school band and we did a rendition of the song”, Icy recounts. “I loved the vibe of the track and it inspired me to be an artist. Thirteen years later and I have the privilege to release a single with my idol. Sean Kingston’s music has influenced me throughout my journey and I am so excited for everyone to listen to this single”.
Icy Lando got the chance to work with Sean Kingston via his manager Go2kelo who has been working with Icy Lando on previous singles. ‘Options ‘ was a solo single by Icy Lando and as much as it was a banger, Go2Kelo believed the Brand power and talent of Sean Kingston on the song would make a huge difference. Once the song was to Sean, he loved it and put his hook on it.
With support from Elicit Magazine, Fame Magazine and Urban Vault, ‘Options’ showcases a rising talent who has a passion for his craft.
