Sauti Sol nominated in BET Awards
Kenya’s popular boy band Sauti Sol are the only East African artistes nominated in the prestigious BET Awards 2015 edition.
The news was broken to the artistes on Monday evening. Last year, Sauti Sol led Africa in the Best African Act category of another prestigious awards, the MTV Music Awards.
This year, they will compete against South Africa’s AKA and The Soil; Nigeria’s Yemi Alade and Wizkid; Ghana’s Sakordie and Stonebwoy; as well as DR Congo’s Fally Ipupa.
East African artistes, including Tanzania’s Diamond Paltinumz, who represented East Africa during last year’s BET Awards, went on social media to congratulate them.
“S/O to my Brothers @sautisol for the BET Nomination…. trust me! this awards is coming to East now!! Mwenyez Mungu tusmamie…” said Diamond on his Instagram page.
Other Kenyan artistes like P-Unit, Avril, Amani, among others, also shared their congratulatory messages on social media too.
