Sauti Sol’s highly anticipated show “Sol Saturday” had to be canceled last minute because of Covid-19 worries, the band has explained.
Releasing a statement on social media, Sauti Sol said that health concern was the big issue that made them deter stepping on station for the event that was to happen last Saturday.
“We regret to inform you that we shall not be performing at today’s scheduled “Sol Saturday” event. Although we deeply desire to give you a marvelous show, we cannot in good conscience assure your health and safety which is our highest priority,” their statement said.
Further explaining why the show had to be canceled last minute, Sauti Sol said they were informed it didn’t meet the strict Covid-19 protocols set to fight the spread of the virus.
“We were recently made aware that the event size doesn’t comply with Kenyan covid-19 protocols and regulations. Together with the promoters tukutane entertainment limited and Masshouse group limited, we tried hard to mitigate the situation, however, we could not come to an agreement on the best way forward,” the statement said.
The band promised to refund all the monies collected from promoters and sponsors as they work on returning on stage soon.
“We shall be refunding the promoters, tukutane entertainment limited and masshouse group limited the full performance fees duly paid to us without delay so that they can provide swift refunds to you,” they added.
