2. Khaligraph Jones

3. Diamond Platnumz

4. DJ Mo

The gospel DJ has been spending time around his family more especially after COVID-19 struck, going out in vacations, having meals together and just being a present dad. However, the father of two’s vibe with his daughter seems stronger than with that of his roughly 1-year old son.

5. Tedd Josiah

9. Frankie Just Gym It

Sauti Sol has mastered the art of making good music

I don’t know about you but I knew that Sauti Sol’s latest song dubbed Insecure was going to be a hit even before they released it. No kidding.

Also read: Sauti Sol’s musical journey is proof that patience pays

This is simply because they have gotten to a point in their music careers where everything they touch instantly turns into gold. Their songs get instant love from their fans and I don’t even think they struggle to market/push them

Sauti Sol

The group which comprises of; Bien Aime Barasa, Willis Chimano, Savara Mudigi and Polycarp Otieno has mastered the art of making good music.

Having been in the industry for 15 years or so, the have learnt the dos and don’t, studied market trends so they know when to release new music and improved the qualities of their videos and audios.

Sauti Sol

In addition to that, they also don’t make random songs. The Kenyan boy-band make songs that create conversations and are enjoyable at the same time.

I’m sure you have noticed that Sauti Sol is never in a hurry to release new music. This is because they know that they have a ready market and the demand for their music is high. So they take their time the end product is dope.

Also read: Sauti Sol has to put up a strong fight to save Kenyan music

They have a different approach to music and I hope that other artists can borrow a leaf from them if they also want to make music that will be played for many years to come. Timeless music.

One thing that makes me really happy is that Sauti Sol has taken talented artists likes; Nviiri, Bensoul and Kaskazini under their wings which means that we will still be treated to good music even after they hang up their boots.

Watch their latest track titled Insecure below.

Sauti Sol’s musical journey is proof that patience pays

I’m so happy for Sauti Sol. If you are keen, I am sure you’ve noticed that many good things are have been happening to them in the past few months and if you ask me, they deserve all of it and perhaps even more.

Also read: Believe it or not, Sauti Sol is saving the Kenyan music industry

From bagging two awards at the 6th edition of the Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) to signing an exclusive recording deal with Universal Music Africa (UMA) which is a division of Universal Music Group.

Sauti Sol

Earlier this week, the boy band made history yet again after they were featured in the official soundtrack of the first Netflix Original African series Queen Sono alongside South African singer Sho Madjozi.

As much as they are making great strides and all, the truth is that it wasn’t easy for them to be where they are today and that explains my elation since I am a huge fan of the group.

You see, Sauti Sol was formed in 2005 and they released their debut studio album dubbed Mwanzo in 2008 and that means that they have been in the game for more than 15 years!

Whichever way you look at it, 15 years is a damn long time and the fact that they are just starting to reap the fruits of their hard work is enough that patience pays.

Sauti Sol

The Kenyan music industry is a mess and I’m sure there are many instances when they felt like throwing in the towel but they didn’t. Instead, they kept pushing while assuring themselves that their efforts will pay off one day.

After what seemed like an endless wait for their big break, it’s finally happening. The way I see it, it’s only a matter of time before they bag a BET or a Grammy.

If there’s one lesson that musicians, especially the upcoming ones, can learn from Sauti Sol’s journey it’s that nothing is as important as passion.

Watch Sauti Sol’s latest single titled Suzanna below.

Sauti Sol makes grand comeback with fresh hit ‘Suzanna’ (Video)

It’s such a good time to be alive ladies and gentlemen. Why, you ask? Well, after a long musical hiatus award winning Kenyan band Sauti Sol is back and they bigger and better.

Also read: Believe it or not, Sauti Sol is saving the Kenyan music industry

A few hours ago, Sauti Sol dropped a new track dubbed Suzanna, off their forthcoming album Midnight Train, and it is without a doubt their best song yet. Trust me.

Sauti Sol
Sauti Sol

The underlying message in their new song is that people, especially our ladies, should accept themselves as they were created by God and not to undergo costly procedures because they are afraid that nobody will love them.

In layman’s language, don’t bleach your skin, get butt injections, wear Brazilian wigs because you are perfect the way you are and it all boils down to your habits and not the way you look.

The other subject that Sauti Sol has addressed in their new track is controversial phenomenon of sponsor and lasses who are their beneficiaries.

Sauti Sol

Other than the powerful message that Suzanna carries, it is also very infectious. Honestly speaking, I have lost count of the number of times I’ve listened to it since it was released because I just keep hitting the replay button.

The jam, which was released a week after band announced their exclusive recording agreement with Universal Music Music Africa (UMA), has been getting a lot of airplay since it came out and understandably so.

Suzanna is well-arranged. The wit in the lyrics is unmatched. If you have to know, my favourite line in this jam is the part that goes like, “And I see you in London, silicon on your bum bum shaking what your doctor gave you.”


The instrumentation on this track is impeccable. Polycarp Otieno did a good job on the guitar because it hits the soul as you listen.

The video concept is also sick. The 70s disco ball set up aligns well with the theme of the song because if people fell in love during that time, why should you change your body now to be loved?

This song is a whole vibe and I can’t wait to sample other songs from their forthcoming album because this is enough proof that it’s not business as usual since they have also matured musically.

Watch Suzanna below and tell us what you think. Enjoy

H_art The Band’s collabo with Sauti Sol titled ‘Issa Vibe’ is a big tune (Audio)

H_art The Band, a music group that became a household name after releasing Uliza Kiatu, has dropped a new song with Sauti Sol and it slaps really hard.

Also read: H_art The Band makes good music but no one cares

The song titled Issa Vibe, which is from their recently released album dubbed Made In The Streets, is definitely one for the books. It really is.

H_art The Band
H_art The Band

If you are a fan of these two groups then I’m sure you’ve been looking forward to the day they will treat us with a collabo. Well, that day is finally here.

The word that aptly describes this song is magical. This song is really a vibe. I played it a couple of times and I’m still in love with it. What a time to be alive.

One of the many things that I love about this jam is the background vocals by Willis Austin Chimano. He aced it ladies and gentlemen. His unique voice spiced the song.

I also loved Mudigi Savara’s and Bien Baraza’s verses, especially the part where Bien gave a shout out to his Rongai people. Okay, I’m kidding.

Sauti Sol

Of course, H_art The Band also came through on this lit jam. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting anything less from them.

However, I must admit that of the trio, I think Mordecai totally killed it. There’s just something unique about his tenor that makes it awesome to listen to.

The beat for this jam is also a vibe. As I was listening to it, I could visualize people in a club busting moves as it plays in the background. Props to the producer.

I honestly can’t wait to listen to and review more songs from Hart The Band’s debut album because from the look of things, it’s totally out of this world. Enough said.

Listen to Issa Vibe below and tell us what you think.

Another of Sauti Sol´s band member set to join Havard University

On the 5th of April, Sauti Sol´s Savara Mudigi left the country for Harvard University and we only expect him back in 2020.

Sauti Sol´s band member, Savara Mudigi

The vocalist took to social media to bid fans and followers ´goodbye´ claiming that he is in a bid to cut off probes from everyone.


On his Instagram page, fans wish him well although feeling sad that he might be kept away from good music production by the books.

However, it is their joy to see him seeking advancement both in his career and educational background:

Lugha ya taiga will be a lit jam????????????


You better be stopping over to see us????

Should we start the cooking….and the music?

???????? Safe travel…


Haha One Love bro… Blessings


@savarafricaall the best and safe travel


Na mimi nabaki mbona????????

The band´s members (Savara and Polycarp-holding guitar) performing on stage

This comes less that 30 days after fellow band member and guitarist, Polycarp Otieno left for Harvard too.

Anyway, we do wish them well and hope this will bring in better quality and taste of music from the renowned Kenyan band.
