Sauti Sol’s Chimano already came out as a gay man, who is proud of his feelings and the person he is. His decision of coming out was however not an easy one especially since the LGBTQ community is still yet to be accepted in the African culture but when it comes to Chimano – let’s just say it is what it is.
Just recently he dropped his first project as a solo artist and judging from the video’s content; all I know is that Chimano is a small princess if not a queen deep down inside.
His video was however received with a lot of mixed feelings from fans; but the numbers speak massive as he is heading for half a million in just 6 days (not bought views btw.) Anyway speaking about his sexuality recently, Chimano said;
It is the first time I am expressing myself in a song. You really get to know who Chimano is and that is a heavy crown to carry. It is just a representation of the underground ballroom culture within the queer community… which I am part of.
Having hidden his real self for years, Chimano went on to add that the reason he shot the Friday Feeling; is to come out and make it known that he is a proud gay man who loves his sexuality. He went on to say;
So, I am just laying everything bare; from now on, hakuna kujificha jificha (there is no more hiding). Sexuality does not define you. It is just about me putting myself out there, my creativity and living my truth.
And to those struggling to figure themselves out, Chimano had this to say;
Figure out what your own happiness is most importantly with yourself. Gather your own life It is the first time I am expressing myself in a song. You really get to know who Chimano is and that is a heavy crown to carry. It is just a representation of the underground ballroom culture within the queer community… which I am part of.
