Kenya’s award winning group Sauti Sol are known for their impeccable entertaining music, which they’ve done together for years. Musical groups splitting up is not something peculiar, especially in the local industry. Some may decide to go their separate ways through mutual consent, while others decide to end their careers and walk away.
A good example is the Kansoul, who were among the best trio in the industry. Well, Sauti Sol are still holding on and don’t seem to split any time soon. The group, consisting of Bien, Chimano, Delvin, Polycarp and David met long ago and tarmacked a lot before rising to fame. Bien, Savaro and Chimano met while still in high school and pioneered the group.
Opening up on how they’ve managed to stick together for long, Bien disclosed that they mostly hang out together; and even go for counselling when they want.
”There’s practices that we put in our lives. I think we have a healthy relationship. Sauti Sol hang out all the time as friends; just drinking, chatting sh*t. And just not doing anything that is musical or work related. And then also there’s the element of counselling. But not because we are fighting. Counselling is just like servicing your car.”
Bien also revealed that the members of the group care much about their relationship; and that’s what keeps them going.
