Lead singer to Kenyan boyband Sautisol, Bien Aime Baraza, spoke about his professional relationship with Nigerian musician Tiwa Savage.
He referred to Tiwa Savage as the ‘love of his life owing to how kind and sweet she is with the Sautisol group. Bien disclosed that
Tiwa is always concerned about their welfare and keeps checking in on them each time they visit Lagos city in Nigeria to perform.
The talented vocalist was also smitten by Tiwa Savage songwriting skills.
He claimed that her ‘pen game is on some god levels’ and ascertained that miss Tiwa will shine in the music industry for a long time to come.
Bien credited Tiwa’s musical success to the music studies she took at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
Sautisol and Tiwa Savage released their massive banger ‘girl next door’ three years ago, and it amassed over 4 million Youtube views.
Bien said he enjoyed every minute he was in the studio with Tiwa Savage.
He described her as super talented and funny.
“Tiwa Savage is the love of my life. She’s dope. She’ just like a homie. When we are in Lagos, she’s always asking, are you okay? Are you guys taken care of? Do you need anything? She’s a very good soul and is amazing. From her sense of humour to her super talent. Her writing is up there, men,” said Bien.
Sauti Sol are so far the most successful Kenyan band, and they are recognised internationally.
They, however, were about to split and engage in different ventures back in 2007.
In a past episode of Sol Generation on Maisha Magic East, Bien revealed that he was involved in an accident at Nairobi CBD, where he lost almost all his teeth.
Bass singer Chimano recalled that the accident brought the group back together.
They had finished their high school two years earlier, and each one of them was planning on heading abroad for further studies.
The guitarist Polycarp Otieno was to study Actuarial science, melodious Savara was to study medicine, and Chimano wanted to visit Paris, France.
