Sauti Sol gave a stellar performance on Saturday night at the Ngong Racecourse grounds when they staged the concert launch of their 15-track album, Live and Die in Africa.
The award winning 4-man band showcased the mastery they have gained over the years, playing hit after hit from their third album.
Flanked by the limber GQ dancers, Sauti Sol gave an entertaining two and a half hour performance that kept the over 1000 fans who turned up for the event.
Amos and Josh joined the band on stage to perform their hit collabo Nerea – a performance that got many revelers singing along to the anti-abortion song.
Jazz maestro Aaron Rimbui has a brief piano interlude before Bien Amie joined him on stage for the increasing popular spiritual track Kuliko Jana.
Taking some time to explain the lyrics of the song, Bien said that the song was important because it focused on the love that God had for people – not the actions that people do in pursuit of righteousness. This got some fans chanting “Amen!” to “Pastor Bien’s sermonette’.
Shifting gears, Sauti Sol turned up the romantic temperature when they invited three lady fans on stage for a steamy performance of the band’s saucy track Nishike.
Seeing their sons on stage performing for thousands at the televised concert was undoubtedly a proud moment for Sauti Sol’s friends and family. Severally, the band thanked their parents for supporting them, especially when they decided to pursue music professionally – a decision that many parents would have opposed.
Bien Amie posted a special message for his mother on Instagram saying: I love you mama! Awinja You were my first music teacher. I’m glad that you got to share this special night with me!”
Numerous A-listers turned up for the much hyped Valentine’s eve concert, including Elani, Nini Wacera, Edith Kimani, Chiki and many others.
Fans, who turned up in large numbers, danced late into the night. All in all, Sauti Sol outdid themselves on Saturday.
