Sauti Sol: Why we stopped releasing songs in 2018

During a T.V interview in January this year, Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol pledged to release at least one song per month for the rest of the year.

They, however, slowed down mid-way through and not much has been heard from them since their politically conscious ‘Tujiangalie’ song featuring Nyashinki three months ago.

The multiple award-winning group has now stated they were unable to follow through on the on-song-per-month promise to their fans due to a few hiccups along the way.

Sauti Sol made the revelation while answering a question from this writer during a press conference for the 2018 Diani Beach Festival at The Alchemist, Westlands, on Wednesday afternoon.

“We paused because we realized we did not have the required financial muscle to keep up with the releases. We have, however, signed deals with international record labels and from next year we will be back on track,” said lead singer Bien-Aime Baraza.

Sauti Sol is set to rock the second edition of the annual Diani Beach Festival for the second year in a row on December 29, 2018.
