Last week, Sauti Sol went to Upper Hill Boys Choir in a campaign to put an end to the school fires. In the event of it, a video was recorded of the band singing a rendition of ‘Kuliko Jana’ with The Upper Hill School Choir. This video was picked up by one Twitter user from the US, who tweeted out the video and ended up getting 24,000 retweets for the video.
Where's the full video? 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾✨ https://t.co/qeUhYwx6d3

The above video not only raised Sauti Sol’s profile on the international stage; it also shone the light on the talents of the Upper Hill School Choir.
Check out another rendition of the song that was performed by the same choir.
And here’s another cover performed by them and Eric Wainaina in the past.
These boys may still be in school but they are very much on the come-up. The music industry should create a large school-choir sized space just for these talented boys.
