SAUTI SOL THREATENED BY POLITICIAN
You know you are making an impact when fat cats call to threaten your life. This happened to the members of Sauti Sol who after a radio interview a very “big and influential” personality called to threatened their lives.
Our source who requested anonymity says, “What happened is, the politician who heard them on radio called them up and was really ticked off by the contents of the politically charged song they sung. He then threatened them.”
The song in question is yet to see the light of day, as it has never been sung in public again. The song castigates the killing of innocent people and the cancer of growing corruption and impunity that is quickly killing Kenya.
With the growing popularity of Sauti Sol that is made up of Delvin Mudigi, Bien-Aime Baraza, Willis Chimano and Polycarp Otieno, fat cats should beware of a young voice that is steadily rising. Just last month they performed for the Netherlands Crown Princess Maxima at the Hague during their tour of Europe.
In the recent Kiss TV Unplugged show the quartet released their newest political song Geuza Dunia that shades light on the current situation in the country like the state of football and the post poll violence.
The group who are steadily taking over the industry with their brand of music are not only political but they are getting philanthropic too.
They will be performing for a cancer benefit concert at the Nairobi International School on December 11. Here all the proceeds go into buying expensive machinery that will be used in the treatment of cancer patients.
