We did it! Sauti Sol’s Bien and his wife Chiki celebrates first marriage anniversary

Sauti Sol lead vocalist Bien Aime Baraza and his wife Chiki have marked one year after they got married.

Bien wedded the love of his life, Chiki Onwukwe, in March 2020 in a civil union at the AG’s office.

The couple was given three hard copies of the marriage certificate for them and their witnesses to sign.

A celebration was later held at Pallet Cafe in Lavington thereafter.

To mark their first anniversary, Chiki recounted of how their first year has been bearing in mind that the country was put on a lockdown one week after their wedding.

Check out her post;

‘1 week after we said ‘I do’, the country went into lockdown. The entertainment industry, that we are both a part of, got a severe hit. We lost gigs, a lot of them. We had to make tough decisions about the staff we hire. We moved house. We got a new dog. I left radio. You launched @pace.sol, I launched @thedanceshagz_ .

She added;

‘But most importantly, we did it ALL as a team. Happy 1 year anniversary. Its a testimony to our partnership that this year has left us stronger than ever.’

It all started when Bien attended a baby shower for his manager Marek Fuchs wife Annabel Onyango, without his girlfriend Chiki, then a close source to the couple revealed that the two were no longer together after a nasty quarrel.

Other than that, the two had not been seen together for a while and had even stopped sharing photos of each other on social media, raising speculation if all was well.

The lovebirds would, later on, come out to address the rumours, denying claims that they had broken up by sharing a video where they hang out and made fun of rumomongers.

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.

We know him as one man with great vocals…But there is a part we are missing!

Sauti Sol’s lead vocalist Bien is an angry man. News of his breakup with hot lass Chiki has been going viral.

What catalyzed the rumours was the fact that the two have not been seen together displaying their usual PDA.

Furthermore, Bien graced Annabel Onyango’s baby shower alone. That was proof enough that the two are undergoing a rough patch.

As always, we called the Kuliko Jana hit maker for a comment who revealed that he and Chiki were together denying that the two were having problems.


We first called his girlfriend Chiki and on introducing ourselves, a livid Bien snatched the phone from her retorting to request for comment.


We now made another call to Bien himself who shot back angrily at the rumours of their breakup saying,


He went on to say,


From what he said, it seems the two have finally patched things together and are about to prove the Internet wrong. Did they sleep in the same house?


Expect to see Bien and his girlfriend Chiki together in public very soon.


Kenyan Boy Band Sauti Sol Send Out A Sincere APOLOGY To President Uhuru Kenyatta After This Happened (PHOTO)

Kenya’s top boy band Sauti Sol have over the years proved to be the best in the game after a successful musical career since it’s formation back in 2005.

The BET nominess may however might have found themselves on the wrong side of the government after their lead vocalist Bein Aime Baraza shared his views on a recent project launched by the government, dubbed Studio Mashinani.

According to Bien, the group were the initial brains behind the major project which was launched a few days ago by renowned Jamaican stars, Etana, Richie Spice and Luciano.

Sauti Sol

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.

On December 29 2015 I had the honor to meet with His Excellency The President in Statehouse Mombasa. The agenda was Kenya Music Industry and Youth. Myself and my @sautisol brothers shared a proposal called STUDIO MASHINANI with His Excellency. It was an extensive project involving Music studios, community radio, ICT Centers and Libraries with the spirit of community service. We were further instructed to give the proposal to Bruce Odhiambo who was at the time Chair of the Youthfund office. We teamed up with Raphael Obonyo @raph_obonyo Cedric Kadenyi tighten the whole proposal with budgets and standard operating systems for the project. The Proposal was sent to the relevant parties. Only to wake up today a year and some months later to see the project being launched countrywide by a JAMAICAN ARTIST!!!!!! NOT EVEN A KENYAN!!!!!I am not in any way implying that The President has a hand in this because he deals with millions of things and this may just be one of those that he delegated. I feel so robbed. I plan to make everything public soon. Just so that the ones who want to can learn from it.”


Bien’s rant elicited mixed reactions from fans and fellow musicians, who rallied behind him, but now, it looks like his voice was finally heard as it turns out that the band is in talks with the State over the Sh80 Million project.

But first, Sauti Sol had to apologize for any offensive remarks Bien had made about the government and more so, President Uhuru Kenyatta. Check out the press statement below.

Sauti Sol has become one of the most celebrated and popular bands in Africa, and we can all agree that their songs are on another level, celebrating the African culture and at the same time keeping it pop music.

One of the group’s lead vocalists Bien-Aime Baraza is the most loved and popular member of the group, known for his breathtaking voice and dance moves. He always has his abs on display when dancing on stage making women go crazy for his masculine body.

KUMBE! Did You Know Them Mushrooms Band Discovered Sauti Sol?

Bien is also a songwriter and guitarist with amazing songwriting skills and has occasionally written songs for other artistes in Kenya.


A while back he admitted that one of the inspirations for this is women and that his thought process equates songs to women. Every Kenyan lady would wish to be Bien’s woman, but only one was lucky to be his woman.

Bien’s girlfriend goes by the name Chiki Onwukwe aka Chiki Kuruka a Nigerian model and fashionista and the two can’t get enough of each other after he came out to reveal that they were dating.


Chiki is also a trainer and professional dancer who recently opened a dance studio.

Bien Of Sauti Sol Rants About Sh150 Valentine Gift From A Corporate PR Person

But what does their private life at home behind all the spotlight look like? Does she cook for him or are they the take away kind of couple? Chiki proved that she’s a wife material by sharing a meal she had cooked for her man.

The sumptuous plate of food consisted of arrow roots, some greens, and pieces of meat. Check out the photo below. How sweet!




Bien Of Sauti Sol Rants About Sh150 Valentine Gift From A Corporate PR Person

Sauti Sol’s lead man, Bien Aime Baraza is the talk of town.
He took to social media to blast a PR/activations personnel of a company that tried to get social media mileage out of him.
He doesn’t mind posting Thank yous on his social media, but he minds very much when the gift – in question – is not worth that kind of  attention.
The Kuliko Jana star said that he was gifted a Sh150 chocolate and asked to post about it on his social media.
He saw red.
This is what Bien said about the whole issue.
On the morning of Valentines I was snuggled up in bed with the love of my life when my phone rang. A gentleman from a top Kenyan media agency had called to inform me that he had a package for me and Chiki; and asked for my address so he could send a rider over to drop it. I was of course delighted to hand it over. He later called after like 45 minutes because the rider was lost, after which I gave a better explanation of my address. In no time my package was here.
I was excited when I saw the slim envelope. My brain was farting with possibilities and probabilities. I remember debating between a holiday or a dinner for two. I tore it up like a kid opening a Christmas gift. And there it was “A BAR OF CHOCOLATE.” My immediate reaction was to call the watchman and ask him if that was all; after which he confirmed “ndio boss, ni hiyo tu.” I thought to myself “what’s the use of sending a rider over, calling me frantically and me giving out my address only to receive a bar of chocolate?”
Shortly after he called again to confirm receipt. I did and as courtesy calls thanked him for the chocolate. But I could hear in his voice that he expected more. After our very brief conversation he sent me a text message with marketing #hashtags and said he would be grateful if I tweeted a thank-you tweet for the chocolate.
Kenyans!!!! What the flying FUCK! How dare you equate an artists tweets to ksh150 worth of a chocolate bar? Since when did artists endorse brands for a bar of chocolate? Whose ‘BRILLIANT’ idea was that!!! I actually felt insulted more than I was grateful for the damn chocolate which if you ask me I could live without. The trouble they went through to call and deliver it defeats the purpose of the whole exercise.
What is the moral of the story? Art should be paid for. Artists put in years building brands that people associate with. You can’t call an accountant and give him chocolate in exchange for accounting services. Put money on the table. I’m disappointed especially with the fact that an agency doesn’t know this because their business is heavily dependent on art and content. Forgive me for overestimating their abilities to think better for my industry.
PS, Chiki ate the chocolate. I was too pissed to even bring it close to my mouth. Bien-Aime Baraza


Sauti Sol’s Bien Calls Visiting American Stars ‘Foreign Bullsh*t’! (SCREENSHOT)

He is known for making his opinions known. Loudly. Whether it is popular or not, he doesn’t care. He has said his piece and that is that.

I’m talking about Sauti Sol’s lead vocalist, Bien Aime Baraza.

A while back he lectured a blogger for writing an opinion piece alluding to the fact that Polycarp Onyango is a not a productive member of the all male group.

Bien did not spare his bundles, he wrote  long winding post calling the writer, a “stupid journalist”.

Now, he wants to make his feelings known about the visiting RNB mega stars, SWV and Blackstreet.

Chek out their arrival video.

In a Facebook post that has since gone viral, Bien insulted Kenyan fans of the Ol’skul acts and in the same fell swoop, called the American artistes “Foreign bullsh*t” and all round “trash”.

He wrote in his post,

“Kenyans are such superstars,. We make foreign songs bigger here than they are in their countries of origin,” adding clapping emojis, “Happy dustbin for foreign bulsh*t day. Hope you smell the trash soon.”
