Renowned Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol has announced that the group will take an indefinite hiatus from the Kenyan music scene after the end of their world tour which kicked on Sunday May 21.
In a statement released on their social media pages over the weekend, the group said, it has been an incredible journey for us, both as musicians and friends. We are filled with gratitude for the love and support we have received throughout the years.
“While we take this hiatus to pursue our individual and collective passions, we remain committed to our friendship and our shared businesses. The bond between us is unbreakable, and we are excited for what the future holds,” the statement further read.
According to the tour, the band will perform in five cities in the US, 10 cities in Europe and four in Canada before performing alongside Boys II Men on June 10 and 11 back in Nairobi.
They will crown it off with a final performance at the third edition of the Sol Fest in Nairobi on December 16, 2023.
Some of the fans took to social media to express their dismay at the sudden news, with some asking why the group had made such a decision.
It is still not clear if the band is breaking up or just taking a break as they did in 2021.
With five albums and over 40 songs to their name, the band has promised to release a final album for their fans as a fitting reflection of their musical journey together.
