Renown Kenyan multiple award-winning boy-band, Sauti Sol are set to launch their recording label this year as they had promised.
Last year, during an interview in October, they said they were planning to launch a managing and recording label to nurture local talent.
Bien-Aime Baraza, one of the band's vocalist during a recent interview with a local radio, disclosed that they're ready and would be setting up the label this year.
"Mwaka huu ni mwaka wa kuinvest kwa music industry na wasanii wengine, stay tuned kwa record label ya Sauti Sol. Mwaka huu ni the year of big things for the Kenyan music industry," Bien announced.
Sauti Sol started the year with a bang after the release of their new jam called Girl next door featuring Nigerian songstress Tiwa Savage, a song that's off their upcoming EP called Afrikan Sauce set to be released this year.
Fast rising Kenyan boy band Le Band has teamed up with Kenyan Hip Hop oracle, Khaligraph Jones on a new smash they title “Nakupenda.”
‘Nakupenda’ (I Love You), the feel-good love song is the band’s first release of 2018, collaborating with the high-flying Khaligraph Jones to make a bold statement. The fast-rising four-man group was one of the breakout stars of last year and a lot is expected of them this year.
With two primary vocalists (Fidel Eli Shammah& Ken Mwendwa) and two primary instrumentalists (Joel Maina & Abe Kiptanui), they are shaping the future of music by tapping into its rich past and employing powerful, catchy lyrics and their signature rhythms indicating a continent on the verge of global explosion.
They have been together for roughly three years now, with their January 2017 release -‘Number 1’ featuring the sultry Suzziah – being considered the group’s big breakthrough.
‘Nakupenda’ is another classic from the lads and has been produced by Sofresh. The video shot on location in the Nairobi city centre is directed by Moses Osidiana, Brainwork films.
The group has previously worked with Papa Jones on the Kantai Remix.
Le Band is a 4-man musical group made up of Fidel Eli Shammah aka Captain Charisma(vocalist, songwriter), Ken Mwendwa aka Man With The Bass(vocals, vocals arranger), Abraham Kiptanui ‘Winchester’ (guitarist, vocalist), and Joel Maina (keyboardist, vocalist).
