Award-winning group Sauti Sol has offered an apology following several complaints from fans who attended their highly anticipated event Sol Fest over the weekend at KICC.
Fans pointed out that they enjoyed the show but didn’t like the fact that Sauti Sol came on stage at around 3 am and performed for less than an hour.
In a statement, Sol Fest management acknowledged poor planning, which ultimately led to long delays, and promised to plan better in the future.
“Our intention was to put on a spectacular event ensuring each artist and musician received enough time to deliver their very best performances to all fans. We also put more focus on the local talent who were performing and our international guests,” the statement read in part.
“We acknowledge this may have led to some unfortunate delays in keeping the show running in a timely fashion and would like to reassure all our fans and supporters that we will plan better for this in the future.”
“Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who came out in large numbers, endured the long queues, and braved the long night to show us love and support.
“It is with you and for you that we can build bigger and better platforms for African talent.”
The event saw a number of artists perform.
Burukyln Boyz, Brandy Maina, Charisma, Nadia Mukami, and Fena Gitu, after DJ KK and Lordwin all took to stage.
Bongo star Harmonize also performed.
