EXCLUSIVE: What you never knew about Sauti Sol’s Bien and Nancy Baraza
The best-kept secret in town is now out; Bien-Aime Baraza is the son of former Deputy Chief Justice Nancy Baraza, she of the (in)famous “you should know people” phrase.
Ms Baraza made the revelation to Nairobi News during an interview in Nairobi on Saturday.
Bien-Aime is a member of the popular all-boy band Sauti Sol who have been arguably Kenya’s top act in the last few years.
Some of the most popular hit by the group include Lazizi, Sura Yako, Nishike and Nerea.
The group is currently riding high on their latest album Live and Die in Afrika.
AWARD WINNING GROUP
The other members of the multiple awarding winning music group are Willis Chimano, Savara Mudigi and Polycarp Otieno.
That’s not all. Ms Baraza is also the mother of another celebrity, Yuri Baraza, a social media manager and sports presenter at Capital FM.
The former judiciary boss grabbed headlines in 2012 when damning accusations were made against her to the effect that she intimidated and allegedly pinched the nose of a security guard at a Nairobi shopping mall.
The incident at the Village Market touched off public uproar that eventually forced Ms Baraza to resign after a tribunal, constituted on the recommendation of the Judicial Service Commission, ruled that she had brought disrepute to the judiciary.
