King Kaka stirred beef with Sauti Sol after he told a local radio station that the group has not done anything for Kenyan music.
We caught up with the group which has now graced Coke Studio for the third time running, and they addressed King Kaka's 'hunger for relevance'.
Sauti Sol said that signing artistes did not mean that the Kaka Empire founder was helping anyone, referring to him as a lukewarm artiste.
"Kaka signing another artiste doesn't do a thing for him (the artiste) because he is a lukewarm artiste signing other lukewarm artistes. Timmy Tdat and Avril should sign King Kaka because Tdat is hotter than him on the streets."
"It doesn't mean that signing a musician is doing something for the industry. Sauti Sol has come out with Studio Mashinani, a project that we launched for Kenyan youth.We did a tour that employed a hundred people.We have been carrying the industry on our backs for many years.We are not even complaining and we are just doing it for Kenya. We do it because we love it, so that his sorry a** can get a chance at it later in his life."
Savara says talking about the rapper is like wasting what he has worked for for over five years
"I think Kaka wants relevance with Sauti Sol. I feel like I'm giving him relevance. I think I have worked too hard and now that I'm talking about him I'm giving him five years of my career.He created a misconception."
Sauti Sol went on to tell this writer
"I want to invite Kaka to come to our office and benefit from learning from our structure. Wizkid amejaza , Wizkid has signed no one, because he believed it can happen."
