Bien who has left fans guessing as to why the Haiwi Haiwi hit maker left Instagram.  Might be making a big social media comeback soon? This comes just before his birthday party dubbed Straight Outta Rongai that is to be held this Sunday in an undisclosed location. (Watch This Space!)

The Kuliko Jana song master might be giving big announcements on that day. Well many would ask, is he preparing to get married to his celebrity girlfriend Chiki? Or is he leaving the Sauti Sol band? Or maybe he wants to make a publicity stunt…? I’ll let you be the judge on that.

Just last year, Bien got into trouble when he replied to singer Bahati’s post about the band being nominated for Groove awards. Bien however said the group would accept a Groove award if they were nominated.

Nikipewa Siwezikataa!!! Sauti Sol’s Bien Responds To Bahati’s Comment Over Groove Awards

Si ni kubaya huku! After deleting his pictures on instagram, Bahati is back with a bang and his first post is taking the internet by storm! Mtoto Wa Mama went on social media accusing gospel artists of not representing Christ in their music, suggesting that secular artistes who are singing gospel music should instead be nominated for this year’s Groove awards. Among the artists he mentioned were Collo, Nyashinski who has done the song Mungu Pekee and Sauti Sol who are the hit makers of Kuliko Jana.

Well, Sauti Sol’s Bien has not taken this lightly as he went ahead to reply to Bahati’s message. In an Exclusive interview with Kiss, Bien has made it clear that Sauti Sol wouldn’t mind accepting a Groove award if they were to be nominated. Bien also pointed out that there are other gospel acts who are doing good in the industry notably among them Daddy Owen, L Jay Masai and Pitson.

Well, it seems as if Bahati could be doing a publicity stunt as there are rumors that he is about to do a collabo with Nigeria’s Chosen Generation hitmaker, Sinach. 9 months ago, Bahati also attempted to create controversy, where he accused Willy Paul and L J Masai of plotting to finish him in another publicity stunt which saw him release the popular Itakua Sawa song.

Here is what Sauti Sol’s Bien wrote after Bahati’s rant;

Bahati go and write songs or rather get good songwriters to work with. DO NOT do music targeting awards. Awards are a by-product of quality. Use this energy to better your musicianship. Also who told you to speak on behalf of Gospel musicians! There are plenty of Gospel artists who are doing God’s work with anointing as they should. So stop roping an entire industry into your publicity stunts. It just makes Kenyan musicians in general look bad. Sautisol didn’t sing Kuliko Jana targeting any award. Music from the heart goes to the heart. As musicians our legacy is cast on song not hype. I mean this with love and respect.

This Is How Sauti Sol’s Bien Got To Hook Up With His Hot ‘Nigerian’ Girlfriend

Sauti Sol’s Bien and his girlfriend Chiki Onwukwe are arguably one of the hottest celebrity couples at the moment. Kenyans cannot get enough of the amazing chemistry between them.

From their lovely selfies together to their crazy dancing videos – the two are the epitome of some of the relationship goals people should have.

But do you know how they met? Well, their story is not the usual boring one; girl meets boy, they immediately fall in love then they live happily ever after. It is actually the opposite.

While speaking to pulse, Chichi opened up about their relationship, saying she met Bien through a friend, fashion designer Emmanuel Jambo. She however says the chemistry between them happened much later, after they got to know each other.

Seeing that Bien is a favorite among ladies, it would be normal for any girlfriend to get jealous when she sees a lady throwing herself at the lad. But Chichi is different. She understands his job and trusts him.

“I loved him for who he is, not because he is a celebrity and he knows that. I do not really get worried thinking about the girls who throw themselves at him. Besides, before I started dating him, I knew his showbiz lifestyle and I did not come to change him. I trust him,” she says, adding that she does not worry about him doing something he should not do when he is away.

Besides this, the singer also revealed that the two dated for a year before they announced their relationship status to the public.

“We dated for a whole year before we decided to go public about our love affair. The only reason we decided to go public was for people to see that what we have is real. We did not want to go into stories of cheating, neither did we want to let people start suggesting that either of us had gotten a “sponsor”,” she explains.

Sauti Sol “Bien’ misses out on Channel O Awards because of ‘passport issues’

 Bien-Aime Barasa missed out on the channel O music video awards awards that were held in South Africa while his other bandmates  Chimano, Delvin and Polycarp attended the event.

The singer allegedly missed out on the event because of ‘passport issues’

According to ‘The star- Word is’ the band manager said “Bien-Aime wasn’t able to go to the event not for anything bad, it is because at the time the band needed to submit their passports for visa processing, Bien’s passport was already full. The have been travelling a lot, of late so by the time they got back from France there wasn’t enough time to replace his full passport.”

The three band mates from Sauti Sol were the only representatives from Kenya as Elani – who were also nominated for the prestigious event – held their first major concert on the same night of the event.

Sauti Sol lost their award to Tanzania’s Diamond as most of the awards went to South Africa and West Africa.
