‘Everyone Is Thinking Of Owning Their Own Kaquarter’ Sauti Sol’s Savara Mudigi vents

Sauti Sol’s Savara Mudigi has shared some heart felt sentiments after his trip from Rwanda on how Kenyans hate each other rather than choosing to love one another. Savara Mugidi is is a vocalist and producer of the Sauti Sol boy band who have shown us over and over again what first class creativity looks and sounds like with their endless and ageless songs.

This handsome lad expressed himself on Sauti Sol’s social media page saying;

Sauti Soul

“I don’t go out too much, generally because I travel a lot. My last trip was to Burundi and while there, I saw the effect of war on people. The reality of murder. I saw happy people who understand and appreciate peace as they have seen worse. And when I got back, I wanted to let loose a little bit, so I went to the club, but there was tension. And I feel like this is a sentiment that I have to talk about.

For some reason, Kenyans have become a bitter people. Sijui kama ni elections au nini, but all of a sudden, we’ve become so fragmented, so individualistic. Or maybe we have always been fragmented and individualistic and elections just pronounce it even more. We are like this despite having seen what war can do to a country. We are not questioning how wars happen. How people become so unhappy, they kill each other. And I could see this for some reason, in the club. People are looking at each other funny in the club, you know? Even couples, even brothers and sisters, wanaongeleshana vibaya.”

Which is very true from the things that are currently happening in Kenya it has become “everyone for himself” kinda thing instead of looking out for each other’s backs. Even for our own siblings, am sure you have heard stories of people killing their siblings over issues of land or even relationships. What happened to loving your neighbor? Savara further state that;

Savara1

“Everyone is thinking of owning their own kaquarter. Kila mtu anataka nyumba yake na miti yake na kila kitu chake. It isn’t a horrible thing. We all want things for ourselves. But what about the person next to you? What about justice for them? Why is it that you getting a certain thing has to be about taking from someone else? You can live for 100 years without owning anything and you can be content. You can own land till the horizon and be unhappy.

So why the hate?
Are people just waiting to insult each other on Facebook? Your phone and toilet seat do not make you the bravest of all humans. The thing with the internet is imefanya kila mtu awe mjuaji. We cannot live like that. People are just waiting for others to fuck up so that they can get an opportunity to gloat or insult them. To shame others. Sometimes I wonder – is that how they’re looking at me? Forgetting the music we work so hard to make as soon as a scandal happens? Forgetting the song, our song, that you were dancing to at your ruracio as soon as you hear a rumour? Why don’t we appreciate each other and we’re all just human?
This is the time to identify whatever drives wedge between us, and triumph over it.”

King Kaka Rubbishes Sauti Sol Like Stinking Porridge In A Calabash

The ongoing beef between Sauti Sol and King Kaka has just heated up, after the boy band called him a “lukewarm artiste signing lukewarm acts”.

King Kaka has shot back, saying:

“I’m being a man here. I’m saying to Sauti Sol, I’m a fan. They have gone to BET, MTV… Heck, I have even voted for them a couple of times, but what do they have to show apart from the trophies?”

The rapper, who is the CEO of Kaka Empire, said, “Inanishangaza niko hapa na work and watu wanne wanaongelea mtu mmoja. I don’t refute that they are the number one music brand in Kenya, but power yao wamefanyia nini? The moment you share power you become powerful. Hold someone’s hand publicly like Diamond Platnumz is doing for Rayvanny, Lavalava and Rich Mavoko. It is the only way the industry can grow. You cannot grow solo.”

King Kaka 2

Asked if he ever got a chance to collaborate with Sauti Sol to quash this beef, would he take it up, he scoffed.

King Kaka told The Star’s Word Is, “Sineed hiyo collabo yao.”

He added, The fact that me, a boy from Eastlands, managed to sign a big act from Tanzania [Rich Mavoko], who was a top artiste even then… Our mode of operation is hinged on growth and cannot grow without starting something. Without Kaka Empire, we wouldn’t know Femi One or get to hear Tippy Toe.”

‘We Do It So That His Sorry A** Can Get A Chance’ Sauti Sol Respond To King Kaka

Umechokoza wale wabaya brathe!

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.”

He added.

“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.”

Here is an exclusive interview:

 

Music Producer Cedo Explains Why He Is No Longer Sauti Sol’s Music Director

Cedo recently revealed that he will no longer be Sauti Sol’s music director. Taking to social media, he didn’t give out more details as to why he has broken up with the boy band.

Cedo and Sauti Sol

He said, “I will always remember Ottawa as the city I played the last gig with my bros. It was maaaad fun!! Lakini all @sautisol gigs are simply epic! 🔥 🔥 🔥 Throughout the 6 years I have been their music director, we didn’t realize we were making a musical revolution, getting the Kenyan music narrative heard all over the world, we just did what we love to do: make good music. I am honoured to have been associated with the greatness that you guys are. I wish you well and I am so excited to experience your new music!”

Well, according to Show Buzz, Cedo broke up with Sauti Sol because he will now be Nyanshinski’s music director.

nyash and cedo

Yes, I am no longer working with Sauti Sol as their music director but I will still work with them in studio once in a while. I am working on my brand now and focusing on building what I did with Sauti Sol for Nyashinski whose music director I am now,” he told Show Buzz.

Heri Kulia Kwenye Bodaboda Kuliko Kucheka Kwenye Rangi Rover! Cedo Quits Working With Sauti Sol He Gives Reasons Why!

Sauti Sol has raised the Kenyan bar too high!

They have had major world tours and given the best performances that remain in their fans memories.

Other than that, they were trending recently after they were accused of not contributing jack to building the Kenyan music industry.

King Kaka put it out there that they have not really built the Kenyan music industry as such. He said they have carried the name out there yes but they are not holding anyone’s hand to walk with them in that light.

Now, another creative has jumped off the Sauti Sol praise wagon.

Cedo one of the baddest Kenyan producers has been the Sauti Sol music director for six years now but the time has come for him to leave.

We have heard a deep voice call out ‘Cedo‘ in most of Sauti Sol’s song but that seems like it’s no more!

Cedo surprised his fans when he posted this lovely caption on Instagram:

I will always remember Ottawa as the city I played the last gig with my bros. It was maaaad fun!! Lakini all sautisol gigs are simply epic! 🔥 🔥 🔥 Throughout the 6 years I have been their music director, we didn’t realize we were making a musical revolution, getting the Kenyan music narrative heard all over the world, we just did what we love to do: make good music. I am honoured to have been associated with the greatness that you guys are. I wish you well and I am so excited to experience your new music!
#cedowashere #ceduction #musicdirector#musicproducer.”

Of course, this had left the fans wondering if he has left the group in good faith or nah? What is the reason behind it? I mean they were getting better and better musically.

We do hope Sauti Sol will be just fine and that Cedo will keep making heavy strides, elsewhere, away from the boy band!

‘Really Guys?’ King Kaka Mocks Sauti Sol After Pulling Down A Post About His Latest Jam (Video)

King Kaka has raised concern over Sauti Sol’s move that saw them pull down a photo they had previously posted on Instagram of his latest jam Run Ting featuring Fena Gitu.

King Kaka2

This comes after King Kaka did an interview and stated that Sauti Sol and other legendary musicians have not really done anything to help the music industry.

“I’m Hotter Than Other Rappers” King Kaka Spits Bars In New Song ‘Yap Yap’

Well, he took to social media to mock them for removing the poster, stating that that was a really petty move they took.

Sauti4

He said, “So juzi nilienda interview nikasema Sauti Sol are not helping out the industry as much. I’m a huge fan of them. By the way kama uko Germany go for their show. But walikua wamepost poster ya song yangu na Fena, Run Ting. Manze Nimeenda page yao nikapata wametoa hiyo poster. Really guys, a poster? Si mngeacha tu. Anyway ni sawa tu but that’s petty.”

This Star Studded Crew Is About To Blow The Music Industry With The Project They Are Cooking (Photo)

Many people have been asking questions what’s cooking behind the scene after DJ Stylez posted a photo on social media.

He took to social media to post a photo of himself, Sauti Sol, The Kansoul and Cedo the producer with a caption that read, “Late night cooking. #industrytings #gamechanging.”

nyash and cedo

This seems like some of Kenya’s biggest artistes are in the studio cooking up something that will shake the music industry.

All these heads are geniuses in their own unique ways and once they come together, they’ll definitely blow us away with dope music. And also let’s not forget the crew has a number of producers who are known as the sickest in the industry.

Sauti Sol Latest Emoji Music Video Is The First In Africa

Sauti Sol always does the unthinkable when it comes to music.

Popularly known for their hit songs such as Shake yo Bam Bam, Sura Yako and Isabella, the band has released a first ever emoji lyric video in Africa.

SAUTI SOL

The New Song talks about being friendzoned, which is commonly talked about by guys all over. Sauti Sol talk about a man who wants to be out of being in a friend zone.

sauti-sol--e1477327875457

He tells the girl how he feels about her through emojis and want to jump out of the zone and yet he doesn’t have a parachute and he hopes he is going to win the girl. The girl is the inspiration behind the song with the girl shying off whenever he looks at her.

They are trying so hard not to loose a friend because of how they feel about the girl. The man has hidden his feelings emotionally not wanting to let out his feelings to the girl.

The guy can’t take being in the friend zone anymore and asks his friends to hold him and even ‘team mafisi’ because the girl has made him go ‘gaga’ and they are going to loose a member.

Sauti-Sol

It took the superstars six months to develop and execute this kind of song.

In case you haven’t watched it yet, which basically means you’ve been living under a rock, here you go. Oh, and you’re welcome!

Here are some reactions from fans:

Alee Roxx: Who else is feeling the guitar
Wendi Ochong’: its really the bigger deal
nancy ndungu: Its what actually got me loving the song, Polycarp come serenade me

‘We Fight And Disagree’ – Sauti Sol

Award winning band Sauti Sol has revealed that despite their success, they fight and disagree.

The band commonly known for their hit songs like sura yako, blue uniform and their new collabo with C4 Pedro called Love again, are celebrating ten years of friendship and the glue that keeps them together is support. Bien-Aime Baraza leads vocals and guitar, Willis Austin Chimano vocals and saxophone, Delvin Savara Mudigi vocals, percussions and drums and finally Polycarp Otieno guitar.

The band members met in high school and originally started as an acapella group. When they cleared their O-levels in the year 2005, they decided to take up music professionally and Sauti Sol was born.

sautisol

Sauti Sol have lots of albums including Live And Die In Africa and Mwanzo and have won many awards. They play Kenyan Afro-Pop and have toured many places in Africa including Europe, Kisumu.

“The journey to becoming the biggest group in Africa has not been all smooth as many would think. Being a quartet made up of four different and strong personalities means we all have to compromise every now and then to make it work. Like any other friendship or relationship, we have had our fair share of disagreements, fights and quarrels, but we always make it work. Before all the fame and money, all we has was each other”. Polycarp said in an interview with the Nairobian.

SAUTI SOL

Savara added that, “Real friends push each other to achieve greatness together. From the moment we met, we knew what and where we wanted to be in the future. The fact that we had a common goal and the desire to succeed helped us work harder and persistent in our endevour.”

Sauti Sol Celebrates International Friendship Day In The Most Admirable Way (Video)

Sauti Sol has grown over the years to become one of the most celebrated music groups not only regionally but internationally too. It’s all hardwork if you ask me, plus they have mastered the art of making good music.

Before they started doing music, they were friends, with Chimano, Bien and Savara going to the same school. But what many people don’t know is that Polycarp also got a letter to go to UpperHill School, but he ended up in another school.

EXPECT FIRE! Music Brings Sauti Sol And Wizkid Together In A Nairobi Recording Booth. Here Are The Full Details

Kenya’s very own boy band Sauti Sol and Nigeria’s Wizkid recorded a song yesterday, one that a lot of fans cannot keep calm and wait to listen to.

Wizkid is in Nairobi for a concert he performed yesterday. Before he headed for a press conference, he passed by a nairobi studio for a recording session with the multi-award winning band.

From what Kiss FM website has found out, the song has been produced by one of Kenya’s biggest producers, Cedric Kadenyi alias Cedo.

Kiss FM reached out to Wizkid who admitted that indeed the collabo is underway saying they first met in Mombasa during the Chris Brown concert.

“Sauti Sol they are very very talented and we met before, when we were in Mombasa and we had to do a show we couldn’t record a song. We definitely created something, I’m excited about that.”

When asked how he felt working with established other established artistes across the world like Drake, Wizkid said:

“I just feel really blessed to be a part of this generation that is making good music. And everyday I get in studio with someone I’m collaborating with I see an opportunity. “

Sauti Sol is by far the biggest group not only regionally but internationally too. They have made Kenyans proud with their efforts to deliver good music back to back.

Just like any other ordinary person, they all started from somewhere. They didn’t wake up one morning and became superstars. The hustle is real out there; don’t be deceived that money grows on trees.

Sauti Sol on Kiss

Anyway, the award winning group are currently doing a media tour for their new jam ‘Friendzone’ which has been received quite well.

Sauti Sol’s Member and Producer Polycarp Soon To Launch His Guitar Brand

In an interview with plive, they individually opened up on some of the scary things they’ve gone through before that left a scar in their lives.

Bien 2

Bien went ahead to reveal that he was once hit by a car along Moi Avenue (road leading to Railways) and lost 15 teeth.

He told the website, “Nishaigongwa na gari na nikapoteza meno 15, Niligongwa na gari hapo railways na mtu amelewa tu iyo barabara ya Kenyan Cinema kama unaenda Railways. Huyo mtu alikuja wrong side akanipiga kwa magoti puf! Sura ikagonga windscreen.” That must have been a really scary experience.

chimano

Chimano also narrated his story, sharing how he had an accident with his bike, whose handle bar was loose, making it difficult to steer the bike properly.

I have a scar on my stomach from when I was 10,” he explained.

Savara on the other hand, had a bad accident that fractured his leg and he now has a metal attached inside his leg to provide adequate support. But he looks much better now and he’s not walking around with a crutch.

So now you know, even your favourite superstars haven’t had it easy in this cold world.

 

‘We’ve Already Reached Out’ – Jidenna To Work With Sauti Sol

Sauti Sol have made a name for themselves and on so many occassions, international artistes who visit the country always state that they love Sauti Sol’s songs and would love to work with them.

American artiste, Jidenna is among those who love Sauti Sol and describes their songs as the right soulful sound.

Sauti Sol

 

We can all agree that their music is eccentric, popping and one can’t get enough of their jams. Jidenna went ahead to state that they had already reached out to Sauti Sol before they visited the country and also stated that he would love to work with them.

He also gave Blinky Bill a shout out for his good job.

Jidenna and Sauti Sol

He said, “I’m excited about Blinky Bill, Sauti Sol definitely, they have like a real soulful sound that I think is missing in a lot of Afro-Pop music. We actually reached out to Sauti Sol before we got here, so hopefully we’ll get a response.”

Well, we hope he got a good response, because a Jidenna-Sauti Sol collabo would be lit for years.

Sauti Sol’s Member and Producer Polycarp Soon To Launch His Guitar Brand

Kenya’s most popular guitarist and member of multiple award winning group Sauti Sol has been making custom made guitars,which he christened ‘Fancy Fingers’ and they are exquisite. Polycarp broke the news last year in September through his social media platforms writing:

Image: Itsmefancyfingers/Instagram

“Sounds so good! If you wanna make an order slide in my DM.”
Speaking to Word Is on how he came up with the idea, he had quite an interesting story.
It was very random but it felt very great of course. There’s this guy who fixes my guitars. When he told me that he makes guitars from scratch, I thought, maybe we could make a Kenyan brand from this, because there is a very huge problem of instruments in this country.”
The inspiration behind it?

“For us, we travel alot and we buy things from outside but there is a kid who’s coming up and doesn’t have access to any kind of instrument. So it’s just an idea to have Kenyan made for the Kenyan musicians.”

According to him, there is still more to this amazing brand that we haven’t seen yet.

“It’s still in the process of being launched so am still trying to get the perfect brand name and perfect design. Then am going to launch it properly,” he said.

polycapsauti

He says that he targets all the young upcoming artistes in the continent.

“Hopefully its going to be a big enough brand for the continent coz that’s my target. Young African Musicians.”

The multi talented artiste is also a producer, and he along side another group member Savara, do the productions for the group

“We do everything in-house. We write and produce”

sauti-sol1

So does he produce for other artistes apart from Sauti Sol?

“I also do produce for other people outside because it’s something that I love to do. I also gain a lot of experience from that and put it back in the band”

Fresh from the award winning afro pop group is a single titled ‘Friendzone’, a song that has hit the airwaves by storm. It is an emoji themed video, which left many wondering how and why they came up with the rare but exciting choice.

Speaking to Word Is about “Friendzone”,

“It marks the new chapter of our era in terms of recording music, how we write our music.”

And about the emoji aspect?

sauti-sol-friend-zone

“You have to come into terms with the things that people use every day. Emojis are things that we use every day. When you’re talking to your friends you use emojis. When you want to have a laugh you use emojis.”

So, is it because they have been Friend zoned too many times?

“Definitely!!Kila mtu amekula friendzone. Everybody has been friendzoned one way or the other.”

If A Chic Never Picks Your Calls, Has She Officially Friendzoned You?

In the song, they mention team mafisi, and having so many listeners globally, many tend to ask what that phrase means. They seem to take that question quite positively and are happy about it.

“It’s great because we are introducing Kenyan urban culture to the world. It is what’s happening in Kenya right now. It is the talk right now. When people ask us what team mafisi is and we give them the explanation, they are like wow, that’s really hilarious. dope. We are just sharing our culture with the world.”

Sauti_Sol

They have recently done a song dubbed “Mbozi Za Malwa”with Ugandan artiste Bebe Cool and the reception was also quite impressive. As we would expect, the really did enjoy working with him.

“He is the boss in the industry and is a wise person. He is one of the best artistes we have worked with.”

If you have been wondering, “Malwa actually means alcohol. So “Mbozi Za Malwa” means those stories you talk with your friends while drinking. Those alcohol conversations.”

sautibebe

Sauti Sol will be going on Tour to Toronto, Canada on Wednesday and will be there till Monday. They, among other major African artistes like MiCasa and Tekno will be performing in one of the biggest African festivals in Diaspora, which they are very eager and ready to do.

“We feel like we are going for the Olympics. And we have to represent the country proper”, they said.

Well…we really are hoping to get more hits from this amazing group. If you still haven’t watched it, below is their latest song “Friendzone”

‘They are Just LAZY,’ Ugandan Singer Bebe Cool Claims That Kenyan Artistes Are NOT Aggressive Enough When It Comes To Music

Moses Sali better known by his stage name Bebe Cool is one of the African artistes at this year’s Coke Studio Africa and there’s no doubt that his hard work in music has propelled him to new levels over the years.

Bebe Cool recently worked on a new collaboration with Kenya’s top band Sauti Sol dubbed Mbozi Za Malwa, back in April 2017, though the music video hasn’t received many views on YouTube as anticipated, it received a lot of positive feedback when it was dropped.

Mbozi-za-Malwa-696x464

This was the first time the reggae and ragga singer has worked with a Kenyan artiste, despite being in the industry for more than a century, but why did he take such a long time to make this move?

Well, in a recent interview, with Insyder, Bebe Cool was asked who his top 3 Kenyan artistes are, and the answer was not what anyone expected, at all.

‘Bebe Cool Stole My Song,’ Claims Fast-Rising Artiste Gin Ideal

bebe-cool-uganda-2

The African Gal hitmaker revealed that the only singers he can rate and recognise from Kenya are BET nominees, Sauti Sol, because it’s the only group that has been able to spread their wings both in East Africa and Africa as a whole.

To tell the truth there is Sauti Sol. I would definitely tell you I don’t think I can rate anybody else. Coz basically apart from the old legendary it’s only Sauti Sol that has made sure they have made a name in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania and Africa.

Bebe Cool revealed that he had only met mellow-voiced singer Dela recently, at Coke Studio and applauded her talent and amazing voice, but reiterated that he would not have known or heard of her if it wasn’t for Coke Studio.

I just met Dela recently and I haven’t even listened to her music (before) so that means Kenyan artistes are a little bit lazy, I usually say that and I’m never shy about it. Because I haven’t heard of Dela before Coke Studio, if Dela has management she has to think twice and move (market themselves internationally) because that is how I will know you. I won’t know when you are there, however good your music is. Success also comes with business and marketing.

DELA-KENYA-2

According to the musician, Kenyan artistes are somehow lazy and need to work on their marketing and management if they want to be recognised in other countries in Africa and internationally.

He however appreciated and congratulated Sauti Sol on their resilience and how they have strived to get accolades all over African and globally, and their enterprising nature too.

This comes after Nigerian singer Iyanya revealed that singer Jaguar was reluctant after their One Centimeter remix, saying that he didn’t make an effort to market his song in Nigeria or introduce himself to the press, which he told him to do 2 years ago;

I don’t know if he was expecting me to do his job for him, he was just lounging around for over ten days. He did not even make any effort, not even a newspaper interview.

A while back, however, they received a public backlash for outfits many termed as “mosquito nets”. It was funny at that time and they even laughed at it. But who had the last laugh? Shortly after, their outfits were featured in a UK museum. How cool is that?

Sauti Sol’s Bien-Aime Baraza is a bitter man after allegations that he had broken up with his dancer girlfriend Chiki Onwukwe.

The rumours started when Bien attended his manager’s wife Annabel Onyango’s baby shower without his better half, raising eyebrows since they are always seen together in events more so if it’s a friend’s ceremony.

Other than that, the two had not been sharing photos of each other on social media for a while, fuelling the claims that they had called it quits.

Reports had revealed that Chiki, a dance and fitness instructor, had moved out of the house she was living with Bien, after a nasty quarrel but the couple has come to rubbish the claims.

When Bien was contacted, he was infuriated about the whole drama, saying that he and Chiki are very much together and chilling. He breathed fire telling our reporter Liz to leave him and his ‘wife’ alone;

We are okay, we are chill, don’t call my wife again asking her stupid questions.

This was before he went to social media to post videos so that he can irritate his haters and rumour mongers who came up with the gossip, making it clear that they are very much an item.

In the video, Chiki takes a video of a shirtless Bien, sarcastically asking him; “How are you doing after our break up.” A happy looking Bien then gives this cryptic response; “I’m so sad since we broke up.”

The lead singer then dances to their latest song, Love Again as Chiki films on, then shares the video with the caption that reads; “Watasema mchana, Usiku watalala. This shit still lit.”

In another video, Bien films Chiki as she walks around the house in a t-shirt, then they flaunt their love all cuddled up and grinding on each other as they sing along to the same song.

Check out the video below which was definitely meant for haters who started the rumours. But this looks like a cover up for something that had happened because a close friend of theirs confirmed that they had major issues in their relationship.
