Why Bensoul is parting ways with Sauti Sol
After two years of being part of Sol Generation, singer Bensoul has announced that he is preparing to leave the record label. Bensoul revealed that his contract is almost up and his departure is imminent.
He compared his situation to that of a lion nursing its cubs and eventually allowing them to venture out on their own. In the jungle, some cubs succeed while others fail.
“I’m the jungle male cub when they get to a certain age, they are chased away from their pride and have to fend for themselves. When they are chased away, some make it others die in the wilderness,” he said.
He expressed gratitude for the career empire that Sol Generation has built for him, calling it a beautiful thing. Bensoul joined Sol Generation in 2019 when Sauti Sol launched the record label.
