Sauti Sol responds to their ‘fashion haters’

 

Fans on Instagram were quick to make jokes about their outfits like; someone who commented; “Seriously you need to sit your stylist down and discuss bout this rugs you call fashion. Or just hire me I can do a better job.”

Sauti Sol, Kenya’s most popular boy band is always making news for hit songs that top local charts at will. But once in a while, their fashion sense (or lack of it) makes headlines in blogs and social media platforms.

Last week, the four-some set Twitter ablaze when they posted photos of their costumes just before hitting the stage at a show in Mombasa. The four members posted a photo on Instagram in all white quirky ensembles while spotting huge smiles. They had on sheer tops which many termed as Mosquito nets, their trademark skinny trousers and other brow-creasing details.

Speaking to a source, the band said apart from making music, theirs is to set trends that others follow. “Kenyan artistes don’t give people something to talk about other than their music. We chose the outfits ourselves and if we don’t do this who will?” Said Bien. “Anybody who has ever been great has had these moments.

Stay tuned and watch Kenyans wearing our mosquito nets,” they said referring to their getup’s.
