Just days after surprising many with the video of their new hit single Nishike, Sauti Sol who are also nominated for these years MTV music awards are out to set the record straight about the inspiration behind the music video.
These is what one of their members had to say about their music video 'Nishike' and their MTV nomination,
“Being the only group in East Africa makes us feel honoured. It’s a good opportunity for Kenyans to represent East Africa well. Most times, East Africa’s sound hasn’t been defined as unique enough and we (Sauti Sol) are one of the groups that will define the East African sound. I am so proud that Sauti Sol are pioneers of the new East African sound that will stay forever. We hope to leave a legacy and push the East African sound worldwide.
Our new song “Nishike” and the new album, as a whole, depicts exactly that—telling African stories through song. We will live and die in Africa.”
“We are not releasing this for us. It’s for the next generation to feel free to express who they truly are.”
Make sure to vote for Sauti Sol in these years MTV Music awards.
