Sauti Sol: No, its not true, we are not ‘divas’

It’s been more than a year since top Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol performed for President Barack Obama when he was in the country for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, a career defining moment for the group.

Since then, the four-member band has not performed at any other state function and the rumour mill has it the group is missing out on opportunities to perform at state functions because they have become divas, and that are hard to work with.

However, speaking to Showbuzz band member Delvin Mudigi refuted those claims and dismissed them as utter rubbish.


“We have been busy with our own concerts, just the other day we were in Rwanda, Kigali and right now we are in rehearsals. The calls have been coming in for performances but we just haven’t had time to schedule performances in the country,” he said.

Their manager Marek Fuchs also affirmed Delvin’s sentiments saying the rumours are unfounded.

“There hasn’t been any other event in the country (as big) since President Obama that the boys have been called to perform. It is not true, I have been handling international events for them and I’m not aware of such claims,” he said.
