Why Sauti Sol has been forced to cancel YouTube concert

Award-winning Kenyan all-boy Afro-Pop band group Sauti Sol has been forced to cancel its YouTube concert that was scheduled for Saturday 28 March 2020 citing the rise of the Coronavirus cases in the country

Taking to its social media page, the group pointed out the urgent need of securing its band, friends, and family and its team’s safety. The YouTube concert was supposed to be a compensation for the group’s UK canceled tour.

“Following the cancellation of our UK tour date at Jazz café on the 28th we were optimistic that we could stream to a Live Concert on YouTube to make up for the disappointment. Unfortunately, with the rising cases of Covid- 19, we must cancel the YouTube concert scheduled for this Saturday 28th March,” read part of the group’s post.

The group, however, revealed that it would make its fans’ lockdown and isolation worthwhile by dropping its second single off its upcoming Midnight Train album on Friday 3 April 2020. The group which consists of Bien-Aimé Baraza, Willis Chimano, Savara Mudigi Polycarp Otieno made history recently when it produced the official soundtrack for Netflix’s first African original series dubbed Queen Sono alongside South African star singer Sho Madjozi.

The group made another step to stardom this year again when it signed a mega recording deal with Universal Music Africa recording label, a division of Universal Music Group which is the world’s music label. The group released its first song dubbed Suzanna off its upcoming album and it became an instant hit.

Sauti Sol was formed in 2005 and it released its first studio album dubbed Mwanzo in 2008 and since then, the group has never looked back. The group has had successful tours across the country, Africa and Europe going on to gain local and international recognition. It has been nominated and bagged awards such as Kisima Music Awards, Channel O Music Video Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards as well as BET Awards. The group has its own recording label known as Sol Generation and has signed Nviiri the Storyteller, Bensoul and Kaskazini.
