Celebrated Grammy award-winning quartet Sauti Sol has released an official statement following fans' negative feedback about a recent concert dubbed 'SOL Fest' making it a hot topic on social media.
Since the event which took place on Saturday, December 17, 2022, frustrated fans have been calling out the boy band asking for accountability over what they termed as a disappointing performance.
Apparently, the singers showed up on stage late at night and didn't meet the expectations of their fans.
In a statement shared through their social media, SOL Fest management acknowledged poor planning which ultimately led to long delays and promised to plan better in future.
They argued that the festival was created to offer a platform to not only Sauti Sol and SOL generation artistes but even other talented African musicians.
"Our intention was to put on a spectacular event ensuring each artist and musician received enough time to deliver their very best performances to all fans. We also put more focus on the local talent who were performing and our international guests.
"We acknowledge this may have led to some unfortunate delays in keeping the show running in a timely fashion and would like to reassure all our fans and supporters that we will plan better for this in the future," part of their statement read.
Savara's reaction on SOL Fest
This follows more backlash spurred by one of the band member Delvin Mudigi alias Savara who addressed the criticism as the 'victim'.
"Sauti Sol is the punching bag. Kama kawaida," Savara said in a tweet.
Savara's tweet seemingly did more harm than good attracting even more disapproval.
