Sauti Sol’s Savara launches SaWA community initiative programme

Sauti Sol band member Savara Mudigi celebrated his 30th birthday on Thursday by launching his imprint community initiative dubbed Savara Women’s Advancement Program (SaWA).

Savara said the SaWA initiative will roll out a series of community events and projects in the upcoming weeks.

“I feel like I got a second chance at life. I wanna do it right this time,” said the singer via social media.

Some of the initiative he is planning to roll out will include a football tournament, Sauti Sol’s first mega concert in Eastlands and the launch of a training and mentorship program for young ladies.

The singer added that he wants to thank to his family and fans from Eastlands were he was born and raised.

“Every time I am back home, I interact with young people and they have always expressed their longing to engage in fun activities like sports and attending a Sauti Sol concert. That’s how my idea of doing activities that engage and empower the community came about,” the singer said.


The SaWA Community Football Tournament will be held at Camp Toyoyo, Jericho. It will be a 5-a-side event with a total of 20 teams of players above the age of 18. Every team will have to have at least two women.

The tournament will be held next month June 18th and 19th.

After the tournament, there will be an after party hosting Sauti Sol’s first concert in Eastlands at Buru Buru’s The Point Mall.

Top DJs, ZJ Heno and Muzikal Sheriff and MC Philipo will also perform at the event.

Savara has had a tough year after he broke his leg in January and had to undergo surgery following a wedge ankle fracture he suffered during a paintball challenge at Purdy Arms in Karen.
