Sauti Sol band members clarify breakup statement
Sauti Sol has dispelled rumors surrounding their alleged breakup.
Speculations arose after the group announced their decision to take an indefinite break from collaborative projects.
Speaking at the Stanbic Yetu Festival press conference, the band members said they had been misinterpreted by their fans after a post they put up on their social media in May.
Savara, one of the group members, expressed their eagerness to expand their record label, Sol Generation, by signing fresh and promising talents.
In a statement, he mentioned their intention to nurture and support new artists, while also acknowledging the growth and independence of Nviiri and BenSol, who now have the freedom to pursue their individual musical journeys.
“We are looking for new talents to sign under Sol Generation. Nviiri and BenSol have wings to run on their own now,” Savara said.
“It’s been an amazing journey It’s been 15 years and we just need to step back a bit. We are not quitting music or breaking up. There is a lot of misinterpretation of the statement we put out. It’s just a small hiatus. We just feel like we need a very small break.
All the business, the record label will still be running and we just feel that we need to take this small break.”
Savara’s remarks were reinforced by Boyz II Men, who disclosed that they too had taken a two-year hiatus as a group.
They clarified that this break should not be misconstrued as quitting music or breaking up. Rather, it was a deliberate decision to step back temporarily and recharge.
During this period, the business operations and activities of their record label would continue as usual, ensuring continuity for their artists.
The group emphasized that the hiatus was a necessary pause to refresh and rejuvenate themselves, assuring fans that they remain committed to their musical journey.
