They Were Balling: Check Out The Expensive Outfits Sauti Sol Rocked Back In The Day

For the longest time, they have been labelled as the most stylish ninjas in the 254, and who are we to say otherwise. Sauti Sol’s stylist has always gone far and beyond to make them look like superstars with their out-of-this-world fashion.

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?

But for them to actually get to afford these outstanding outfits, they had to work tirelessly. Back in the day when they were starting off, they were not earning as much as they are now, not that I know how much they earn but they termed their outfits as expensive by the standards of those days.

“Babe, How Are You Feeling Since Our BREAK UP?” Bien And Sassy Girlfriend Chiki Post Cryptic VIDEO For Haters After SEPARATION Rumours

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.

Bien-Sauti-Sol-1

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.

‘Stop Calling My Wife With Stupid Questions,’ Angry Bien Shouts, Denies Break Up With Girlfriend

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.

 

 

‘Strength Grows In The Moments When You Think You Cannot Go On,’ Bien’s Girlfriend Disseminates Wisdom After Nasty Breakup

Another celebrity relationship has gone to the dogs.

Sauti Sol’s Bien Aime Baraza has called it quits with his longtime girlfriend, Chiki Kuruka.

This comes after Chiki threw him a note worthy bash at Osita Lodge a while back.

Anyhow, the details of the break up have being reported by Cheptoek Boyo of the Nairobian, who writes,

“Bien called it quits two weeks ago on grounds that Chiki was giving him ‘too much pressure’.”

The breakup saw Chiki park her bags and move out the apartment they were sharing together.

Now, the two are keeping mum about the breakup with Chiki’s manager giving a “no comment” response to whether they have broken up or not.

Chiki runs a very successful dance studio that is frequented by celebrities. It is located in Karen.

Meanwhile, Chiki has been posting inspirational messages on her social media.

One of which read, “Strength grows in the moments when you think you can’t go on but you keep going anyway” – Anonymous.”

May 14 was the last time she posted a photo together with Bien. While the Sauti Sol hunk posed a sweet message to her on May 18, quoting Nyashinski’s lyrics, “~Uko sawa na, wote malaika na mabawa yao, wote wanakuiga we ndo mama yao~ A Kenyan proverbs.

Here are some inspirational quotes she has posted in the past weeks when the said break-up happened.
1. “Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe.” – Oprah Winfrey.
2. “You can either see yourself as a wave in the ocean or you can see yourself as the ocean.” – Oprah Winfrey.
Some mid week inspiration for wellness and wisdom.
3. “The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but on significance-and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning. ” – Oprah Winfrey.
4. “She was born to be free, let her run wild in her own way and you will never lose her.” ― Nikki Rowe
5. “As long as my body holds out, I’ll be grooving when I’m 70.” ― Nikki Rowe
6. “When you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back and you give other folks the same chances that helped you succeed.” — Michelle Obama
7. “Until you value yourself, you won’t value time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it.” – M. Scott Peck

“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou.
I have this quote on my mirror in the bathroom and it’s one of the first things I see in the morning when I get up. Self explanatory. FYI to late Dr. Maya Angelou is also one of the most inspiring women to have walked this earth. Still I rise.

9. ts not every morning you will wake up feeling great….. you might just want to crawl back into bed (me today!) What i usually do is force a smile until its real.
Happiness doesn’t always come naturally. But it is certainly a choice!

Check out some of her rocking photos that prove Bien amepoteza mchumba hot, hot!

Their parents must be really proud of them, considering how hard it is to make good music and get appreciated for the good work. There are savages in this world, in case you didn’t know.

Studio Mashinani was launched by the Ministry of ICT to provide modern recording facilities for talented youth to record their music and other creative products in terms of entertainment, film or showbiz.

According to Bien, the group had presented the idea to President Uhuru Kenyatta back in December 2015 as a way of introducing music studios, community radio, ICT Centers and Libraries with the spirit of community service.

They were further instructed to give the project to former YouthFund Chair, Bruce Odhiambo and together with other industry players, they embarked on the logistics and then sent the proposal to the involved parties.
