Born on 16th September 1986 to Mr. Kasirye Edward and Ms.Nankabirwa Harriet, Santana is the first born in a family of two. He attended Namilyango Junior School for primary, then Uganda Martyrs Namugongo for his secondary level and joined Makerere University from where he graduated with a bachelor of law degree. Santana started embracing music at an early age and was seen miming songs from the likes of the Fugees, Peter Andre, 2pac as early as primary four. In primary school (P.6) he wrote his first song, a love ballad and since then he has written over 170 songs. Santana stepped on the show biz gush in November 2010 when he officially started recording music with Glen Davelinc the co-founding member of 100 Acres label with whom they did a couple of songs that pushed the label ahead across Uganda including a number one Hot 100.0FM single DOCTOR. After huge applauses and credits, 100Acres decided it was time for the members on the label to work on individual projects. It’s from this that Santana started to work on his individual project (album) “FOREPL@Y” in 2012 with his first single “NEMBYELABILA” which was produced by L.O.B of Urban Aksent which dominated charts across the country’s urban radio stations and was named by one of the local tabloids (Kampala Sun) as the Number.1 song to dominate radio charts and night spots for a month. He went on to release his second single “BEAUTIFULU” which received heavy airplay and rotation on all urban radio stations in all regions of the country. It dominated radio station countdowns like Magic 100FM where it spent two months as number one on the countdown, which was a record on the station having an artist with two songs {nembyelabila & beautifulu} on the countdown & a song{beautifulu} being number one for 7weeks straight. It was also named by one of the local tabloids (Kampala Sun) as the Number.1 song to dominate radio charts and night spots. As a result of heavy rotation of his songs and demand by listeners Santana got his songs on caller back tunes with one of the leading companies in the country Blue Cube. Santana is currently working on his 17 track album “FOREPL@Y” on which he released his third single titled “EBANJJA”, which has been received well by his fans across the country.

He describes his kind of music as theatrical hiphop and poetry since he specializes in storytelling and passing on a massage through his witty lines. As a founder of 100Acres Entertainment he has been able to exhibit virtues of a leader and also develop it in different ways which include; Register it as an entity (company).
