Nigerian alté Santi has taken another deep-dive into his imagination for his wild "Raw Dinner" video. The 8-minute clip, streaming above, lends a series of terrifying images (inluding a blood-spattered surgeon and a series of demonic girls) to the track from his recently-released album Mandy and the Jungle.

“'Raw Dinner' is a short film set and shot in Lagos," Santi said of the video, which was shot in Lagos and features UK-based rapper Kida Kudz. "The video and story are heavily influenced by horror movies, fairy tales, and elements of dark comedy. It tells the story of a duo who hunt spirits and protect the city from evil and a girl they find with unlimited potential of power. They eventually form a trio but the girl soon realises that her true roots are evil and embraces them."
