Sauti Sol’s Savara celebrates his 30th birthday today (25th May 2017), and with it makes a big announcement.
This comes after undergoing a life-changing period this year, having been involved in two separate road accidents, leaving his left his ankle broken. Though still under recovery, he just launched his imprint community initiative dubbed #SaWA (Savara Women’s Advancement Program).
#SaWA will roll out a series of community events and projects in the upcoming weeks. They will include a football tournament, Sauti Sol’s first mega concert in Eastlands and the launch of a training and mentorship program for young ladies.
The Birthday Boy, Savara says, “As I hit the Big 30 this year, I want to give back to my family and fans from Eastlands, where I was born and raised. Every time I am back home, I interact with young people and they have always expressed their longing to engage in fun activities like sports and attending a Sauti Sol concert—that’s how my idea of doing activities that engage and empower the community came about. The football tournament, concert and the ladies training program will bring my fans together not only on a fun level, but also on a development level,” adding, “I feel like I got a second chance to life this year, and I want to share it with my fans.”
Happy Birthday Savara.
