After touring five towns and cities including Nairobi, Nakuru, Eldoret, Kisumu and Meru, Sauti Sol’s acclaimed Live and Die in Afrika nationwide tour is capping off in Mombasa this weekend at the Mombasa Sports Club.
It has been a tour that has literally shaken Kenya and above all inspired fellow artistes that they too can put up a tour of their own.
“We are here to give great music, a world-class show, support local talent as you will see by the list of professionals who are part of this concert that will kick off our countrywide tour. We have been hiding in serious full-day rehearsals for months, it’s time to show the world what we got,” says Sauti Sol’s official statement.
That is what they did in all these major venues. They took world class sets and made them into golden memories for any reveller who attended.
The anticipated Mombasa finale of the Kenyan edition of the tour comes right after hosting a massive concert in Meru at The Meru National Polytechnic over the past weekend. The Meru concert was one of the biggest and best of the tour so far, attracting 2,000 plus attendees (most of who were campus and university students), including the Governor of Meru Peter Munya.
Kenya’s No. 1 Hypeman DNG was the mcee and DJs Kafi, Njambi Koikai a.k.a Fyah Mummah and Meru’s own DJ Kimms steered music entertainment. Opening acts included the KISS FM’s winner of the star opening acts search Teti among other Meru based music acts.
The finale Mombasa concert is bound to be the biggest Sauti Sol concert in Kenya and expected to pull mammoth crowds. Sauti Sol will be backed by their stellar 8-man band, dancers including GQ Dancers, the dance choreographer Chiluba and a list of surprise top Kenyan music acts. They will perform songs off the album Live and Die in Afrika, including off album hits like Money Lover, Unconditionally Bae and Gentleman, among others.
