They once sang TujiangalieSura YakoNishikeFeel My LoveShort N SweetKuliko Jana, and Rewind. Unconditionally Bae and Still The One – for Sauti Sol, their reality reflects their art.

This Kenya’s most successful boy band announced, “Don’t miss the chance to be a past of Sauti Sol’s last dance,” their last performance ever as a group at their self-curated concert SolFest, set to be on November 2, 2023, in Nairobi, to bring down the curtain of a glittering two-decade music career.

“As the clock ticks down to the much-anticipated SolFest at Uhuru Gardens, prepare for an experience that will showcase Sauti Sol’s musical odyssey over the last 20 years. The performance promises to be a true celebration of the band’s indelible mark on the Kenyan music scene,” a statement on their social media pages reads.

But in any case, they are just Insecure. Shortly after their breakup cum hiatus in early November after SolFest, the shiny four-member band, known for lyrical sharpness in their Afro-pop Rumba fused songs that cross generations, will rekindle their fraternal affection sooner on December 8 in South Africa at the Hey Neighbour Festival 2023.

Hey Neighbour Festival is a three-day music event that will take place in Pretoria at Legends Adventure Farm from December 8 – 10. It may be one of the biggest live music concerts in Southern Africa, expected to be headlined by American rapper Kendrick Lamar, the first and the only rapper with a Pulitzer Prize.

Sauti Sol’s Bien-Aimé Baraza, Willis Chimano, Savara Mudigi, and guitarist Polycarp Otieno will open the bill on the first day, treating the fans to special moments with their catalogue of hits and will be joined by other lead acts, electronic dance music duo The Chainsmokers, singer Khalid and Nasty C among others, the event organizer announced Friday.

The mega event will also attract superstar talent: Billboard chart-busting musical artists H.E.R. and Swedish House Mafia, including several local acts like Focalistic, singer-songwriter Shekhinah, and DJ Maphorisa. Hey Neighbour Festival tickets start at R4,199, roughly Sh32,000.

A few months ago in May, Sauti Sol started their global farewell tour and played their final concerts in some cities in the United States, UK, and Canada before capping it off in Nairobi alongside Boyz II Men in June.
