With Sauti Sol on an indefinite hiatus, Willis Chimano has outlined his plan during that period.

The bass-toned vocalist says he will be taking a well-deserved break to recharge and energize before making any sort of a comeback as a solo artiste or still part of the group.

“Chimano is going to take a little bit of a break, maybe I have a lot to say but for now Chimano is going to take a break for a bit just relaxing, being in thoughts and prayers. Honestly, there isn’t much I will be doing, just that, relaxation, maybe take a holiday,”

In a different interview, while speaking on Sauti Sol’s hiatus, Bien Aime disclosed his colleague Chimano will be taking a holiday to Switzerland.

“I Know Chimano is going on a holiday to Switzerland, he wants to travel the world for me I will be releasing more music. I guess I was born to do nothing else but produce and write music,”

Chimano who confessed to being a member of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBTQ) in 2023, says the break will help him figure out his next move now that Sauti Sol is done.

“Sauti Sol is done for now, we are all in an element where we are all figuring out and working towards what we are going to do and become (individually). I guess everybody will just have to wait and see,” he adds.

After 17 years of performing together as a band, Sauti Sol hosted their last performance together on November 4, 2023 dubbed the Last Dance during the third edition of their franchise even Sol Fest.

The group is considering among the most popular in Africa and have over the years performed all over the world with impressive returns.

The standout performance for the group, which is considered among the most popular in East Africa, is, perhaps, when they were joined on the stage by then US President Barack Obama while entertaining him and his host President Uhuru Kenyatta during a banquet at State House, Nairobi in 2015.
