Her unprecedented departure from Sol Generation sent shockwaves around the music industry. Coming barely 10 months after joining the brand, Crystal’s exit was a shock to many of her fans.
Details of her departure were revealed a few months ago by Sauti Sol’s Bien. Speaking during a press conference on the band’s Midnight Train album, Bien revealed that Crystal was no longer part of the label. However he remained mum on what led to her fallout with the group at Sol Generation. He also pointed out that Crystal’s exit came with a lot of complications but maintained that the exit was amicable.
Details surrounding her shock exit remained scanty until recently when the famed songbird broke her silence on the matter. In an interview on Chat Spot, Crystal said that Sauti Sol did not want to her to continue working for the group and asked her to leave.
“It’s not a very long story, back in November (2019) they told me they wanted me to leave, they don’t want me in the group anymore so I left. That’s literally the beginning and the end of the story,” said Crystal.
Crystal, who is riding high on her single Safer, was part of Sol Generation when they collaborated with Sauti Sol to release the hit Extravaganza. Her former members at Sol Generation include Bensol and Nviiri The Story Teller.
