"Where do we even start. All we ever wanted was to be like you. From watching you way back in CLUB AFRIQUE. You showed and continue to show us what musicianship and authenticity is all about. There is definitely no us without you and your art. Thank you for always having our backs. You are a King. ❤"

Richard Astar Njau the brians behing CTA Youtube channel and digital media enthusiast, explained how epic Sauti Sol's performance was.

"In short Sautisol's live just filled an international STADIUM!! And I ain't talking Kasarani! In fact they filled Kasarani and Nyayo Stadium! At their peak they had 32,440 devices and if we multiply that by a screen factor of 1.5 that's over 45K PEOPLES watching the live SIMULTANEOUSLY!"


"But over 100K devices (without screen factor) attended the gig! Some arrived early... some left early! Some chilled and stayed! (hitting replay on that live)... and some are now coming! (hence why the views will keep going up!!!)"

"What these boys have done is EPIC! They have raised the Kenyan and African banner to a place where no other musician has done! "

Radio Africa was among the sponsors of the super successful virtual event.
