Sauti Sol have been generating a lot of hype of late with their new single, “Still the One.”
With a new album highly anticipated to be launched very soon, you’d expect their latest video to capitalise on all the energy, but no. Sauti Sol have gone back to their previous album, “Sol Filosofia” to release the song “Awinja.”
“Awinja” was my personal best song from the ‘Sol Filosofia’ album. If my broken Luhya serves me correctly, it is about a woman who has travelled to the diaspora to hustle, but is eagerly awaited by her family back home. Sauti Sol decided to launch this particular song’s video since it is around the time for Mother’s Day. Polycarp, the guitarist told me, “its just a gift for the mothers. A simple video a tribute to our mothers.” The video was shot and directed by Alkofilms: Benjamin Bob Masitsa, Gilbert Somek and Tobias (Tobby) Bodo.
For those who are disappointed that they didn’t release the ‘Still The One’ video, Polycarp has some reassurances for you, “We shoot Still The One video tomorrow, and it will be out in two weeks.” кредит
