We have seen Sauti Sol members grow to international success.
They have been under the management of one Marek Fuchs originally from the Czech Republic. He became a father to his second-born son yesterday after his wife, stylist Annabel Onyango, gave birth at 7:29 am.
Marek met Sauti Sol while going around to festivals. Njambi Koikai was their first manager when they started doing music. The only reason they dropped her was because she was still in campus.
Marek ran into them and they became friends.
When I got to know them, I saw the drive, talent and passion they had and that interested me. Around 2011, I was heading to Europe to attend a couple of summer festivals in the Czech Republic, and I asked if they would be interested in coming to play.
We exclusively had a discussion with Bien on the rumours that Marek has been fired by the band.
After we signed a new record deal, it came with new rules, which is why Marek is currently not our manager
However, Bien says they will be working with him in other ways. Marek has his new company called Africa Centric Entertainment, ACE that deals with branding and entertainment.
It is only that we have also grown because we now have Sol Generation, but we will still be working with him, although he will not be managing our day-to-day work anymore. We are currently managed by a South African manager
They might not be working closely but Sauti Sol will forever be indebted to him for his loyalty and amazing work he did with them.
He is a hardworking person and we will still have him as a brother. Life is about growth and so we have to keep growing
