Formed in 2005, Sauti Sol is one of the biggest bands in Kenya. Bien, Savara, guitarist Polycarp Otieno & Willis Chimano make the band that has produced 5 studio albums since formation.
Andrew Kibe believes that the other members of the group, are dragging Bien behind and for him to make it even further as an artist, he should ditch his band members.
In one of his videos on YouTube, Kibe has said that Bien is the one who hold the group together, musically.
Bien is the most successful, in fact without Bien there is no Sauti Sol, When you think of Sauti Sol you first think of Bien, and then…the other guys..
Bien knows how to make a hit, Bien knows how to be relevant,
Bien can be one of the greatest artists in AfricaKIBE
Kibe however supports Eric Omondi, on his view that Kenyan artists do not know how to market their music, they lack drama, he agrees. There is lack of authenticity.
artists want to separate themselves from what they are selling, you can not separate yourself from your brand, it’s impossible”,KIBE
