Boy band Sauti Sol have for the first time ever done a political song dubbed Tujiangalie featuring Nyashinski.
The song is addressing the current political situation in our country saying as Kenyans we need to think about our future as a country.
‘Tujiangalie’ is about the world right now and the number of persistent issues plaguing it. Sauti sol wrote
“These things are hardly ever solved and we are consistently shortchanged. So we considered; how can we address these frustrations? Our first realization was to speak power to the reality that we are living in, hence the title “Tujiangalie.’ Self-reflection. Recognizing that we have the capacity to change the world we live in by looking inward and holding ourselves accountable for the role we play in society. The truth is “when you make your bed, you lie in it!” None of us are perfect. None of us are exonerated. We have all contributed to and benefited from the flawed systems. But, change is a result of possibility. If we all decide to personally act towards building a world we are proud to live in, then it will become a reality.
A few days ago, Sauti Sol spoke out against the continued detainment of MP Bobi Wine. Several other Kenyans have protested and urged for the Ugandan government to release Bobi Wine.
Boniface tweeted; “Sauti Sol is here doing a political tweet. Hopefully they can learn from Mariam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, Fela Kuti, Aretha Franklin, Harry Belafonte etc that it’s the work of artists to use their art to speak truth to power. Good start. Now don’t stop! Sing about impunity too.”
Tujiangalie featuring Nyashinski is the sixth single off of their forthcoming LP, Afrikan Sauce.
