Back in 2012 Sauti Sol Launched Soma Soma intiative at the Aga Khan Academy Mombasa. The initiative is to advocate for education for all youth in Kenya and Africa. They spent time encouraging the pupils to work hard in school, respect their teachers and above all, value education. Their message was followed by a talk on the band’s own personal journey as musicians who first completed their education before pursuing their dream. Finally, the group taught the children the lipala dance and they sang and danced away to the band’s hit ‘Sura yako.’

40 days Over 40 Smiles Foundation did this under their literacy program they launched last year in two schools namely Merowa Primary School and St John Baptist Primary School.

It was a nice moment as the ‘Sura Yako’ hit singers interacted with the kids, had up-close and personal with them.

” The opportunity to work with Sauti Sol  was an exciting one. Knowing that they encourage education of children of all ages through their Soma soma initiative, it was a privilege to have them inspire the children we work with here in Uganda. It is quite humbling to see internationally acclaimed musicians take time to talk to these children who need such great role models in their lives.” Esther Kalenzi the founder 0f 40 Days Over 40 Smiles Foundation told Chano8 in an exclusive interveiw.
