Music producer and composer Polycarp Otieno, aka Fancy Fingers, has released his debut solo single, 'How I Met Your Mama', which is off his album 'Father Studies'.

In a statement, the Sauti Sol member said, “The song is a fusion of Kenyan and Burundian sounds and optics to show my son his roots. Because that is part of his identity.”

Adding, “We need to tell African stories to our young ones. I chose to start from how I met my son's mother, my wife. Conversations with my friends also proved that most of us don’t know the full story of how our parents met.”

The music video features cameos by his wife Lady Mandy, their son Sulwe and the celebrated Burundian drums, Ingoma.
