Sauti Sol band member Bien-Aime Baraza has credited veteran Kenyan musician Eric Wainaina with mentoring him during his early years in the industry.
Bien made the revelation on Citizen TV’s Jeff Koinange Live (JKL) show where he was the guest alongside Eric and hard hitting rapper Khaligraph Jones.
Bien further revealed that he was a backup singer for the ‘Daima’ hitmaker for a long time as an upcoming artist.
“I was Eric’s backup singer for many years, that’s what people don’t know. This guy has groomed me all my life…said the Sauti Sol lead singer.
The artists were on a panel discussing the conversations sparked by wordsmith King Kaka’s latest politically conscious release ‘Wajinga Nyinyi.’
The three commended the Kaka Empire CEO for evoking emotions in the manner he did, further urging fellow artists to pick up the baton.
