Yet again, Sauti Sol emerge tops, this time at the MAMA Awards

Sauti Sol added another feather in their cap by scooping the Best Group award at the MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA 2016) on Saturday night in South Africa.

The high riding Kenyan band beat off stiff competition from Mi Casa (ZA), Navy Kenzo (TZ), R2Bees (NG) and Toofan (TG) to scoop one of the key categories at the world acclaimed awards.

The award capped off a successful week for Sauti Sol who just a week ago won the Best Group award at African Muzik Magazine Awards (AFRIMMA) in Texas, United States.

Since bursting in to the limelight, the band has been pursuing the award which had been elusive until they finally clinched it on Saturday night.


The four were joined on stage by manager, Marek Fuchs and publicist, Anyiko Owoko before Bien-Aime gave a short speech thanking God, their fans and a loyal team for rallying behind them for years.

Sauti Sol were the only East African act to win an award at the ceremony, which saw the usual dominance of South African and West African countries notably Nigeria winning most of the awards.

After being named the winners, Sauti Sol, who had been nominated in four different categories, took to social media to thank their loyal fans across East Africa.
