Sandy Orace a.k.a The reggae prophet is a Nigerian born roots reggae musician, songwriter and a producer who is currently residing in South Africa, he was born in Anambra state South east region of Nigeria in the early 70’s. Sandy had his early education in Mamfe town South west Province of Cameroon in the 80’s and later came back to Nigeria in the early 90’s to complete his higher institution,
Sandy started exposing his love for reggae music at teenage when he used to construct toy guitar with empty cans trying to imitate what late Bob Marley and Peter Tosh was doing on stage as of then, and that really helped him to build up strong reggae mylitis within himself and to believe that one day, he will be standing in front of audience performing like any other reggae musician.
Sandy Orace successfully released his first single album in 1998 titled Mystic Man that was his first experience to record in the studio and to work with music producers after long years of writing many songs, in 2002 he released his second album titled Revolution which is more militant due to the political crisis which his country (Nigeria) was facing at that time. In 2006 he recorded another album titled Sentimental Love which most of the songs on the album are love songs and love stories based on his experience about love and life, and the album was released in 2007. The album titled Many Rivers was recorded in the year 2010 and released in 2011 under the label of Iyke de don entertainment Lagos Nigeria and distributed in Africa by (Roots Entertainment Africa).
Sandy Orace has toured many countries in the Western African region with his Roots Entertainment Reggae Band which was formed in 2008 but little was known about the band due to lack of financial strength to upgrade it to international standard. As one can judge by listening to Sandy’s lyrics and rhythm, it’s more of the late Peter Tosh and Lucky Dube’s style and pattern which sometimes throw confusion among the people who enjoy late Lucky Dube’s music because they can hardly differentiate Sandy’s voice, lyrics and rhythm to the one of late reggae king Lucky Dube. Sandy Orace moved to South Africa in 2012 based on his Rastafarian believe that Africans are one people and his vision and mission behind his music is to preach togetherness among humanity, no doubt his lyrics are full of positive messages that touches everyday life experiences. In 2010 on live interview with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) he Sandy said: ‘my lyrics are full of realities and positive vibration, my music is for the people and for the future, so I must take it to the people at the four comers of the world, no matter the distance…..it’s Jah work and Jah work must be done, that’s my mission here on earth.’
