Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
In a special episode, I chat with exciting artist Santiina.
Mr Topple x Santiina
Hailing from Jamaica, Santiina has been in the music industry since the tender age of 16. She effortlessly glides between reggae, dancehall, RnB and afrobeat. Moreover, her voice is one of versatility, being equally at home with straight, spine-tingling vocals, rapping or singjay (a mixture of singing and rapping). She recently re-released her moving track Judgement which discusses violence against women, girls and young people, and why society is failing to tackle it.
So, I caught up with Santiina for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We discussed her musical background, her flipping between genres, Judgement, working with the legendary Spragga Benz and more.

We need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
