An accident that saw Sauti Sol’s Bien lose his teeth and injure his knees turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
Sharing the scary moment on their reality TV show ‘Sol Family’, the singer remembered how Bien was hit by a car in town while with his sister.
“I was with my sister, we were crossing the road in town then a car was driving on the wrong side. The car came and crushed my knees and my face hit the windscreen,” said Bien in the show.
Savara said he was in Nakuru when he was given the shocking news.
“I get there and I am like, what the hell?” he said.
“That is why I have teeth from Germany. The Mercedes Benz of teeth.” added Bien jokingly.
The accident was bad, but in the end, turned out to be a blessing as Sauti Sol was nearing a breakup.
“It brought us together,” the band said.
Savara was to go and study medicine abroad. Bien was going to the States and Chimano wanted to relocate to Paris where he dreamt of living.
“When I look at it, it was a good moment,” Bien said.
“I got better teeth because the ones I had were bad na zilikua zinachoma, but look at me now.”
The second season of Sol Family has been running for a couple of weeks now and producer Eugene Mbugua said they are taking a different route from that normally used by reality TV shows.
“We try to get away from the dramas that are associated with a reality TV show. We are walking away from reality TV shows’ toxicity,” he said.
