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.
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.
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.”
