Sauti Sol speak about new reality show on Showmax

Kenyan afro-pop group and MTV Music Africa award winners, Sauti Sol have joined the league of entertainers with their reality show on Showmax.

The documentary reality show titled Sol Family was created by Eugene Mbugua and offers fans a glimpse into the personal lives of  Sauti Sol members Bien, Chimano, Polycarp and Savara, as well as  Sol Generation’s Nviiri and Bensoul.

In an interactive session, the group shared that they’re looking to “inspire a generation of epic thinkers” as Savara puts it, by showing them their lives beyond the music and the stardom; their passion in their craft; and their vulnerability and realness.

“It’s not like we’ve set up a scenario and we’re like, ‘Okay act this out.’ It’s just realness. We’re talking about our actual lives. We’ve been in the industry for 15 years, and we have so much to talk about, so much to share with the people,” Polycarp shared.

The group also talked about putting together footage amidst the COVID pandemic, and how the show is much more beyond the glam associated with the life of music artistes.

“When corona happened and we started making all this content, we  didn’t know what we were preparing ourselves for,” says Bien. “All  the content we’ve created over the last four months has now started  to be put out, and it’s clearly working because people are really  connecting with this reality show beyond a glam level.”

Bien also added that the show is not what people expected. “They  expected to see cars, partying, those things they associate  celebrities with, and now they’re realising, Polycarp is a husband,  Delvo (Savara) is a boyfriend and Sauti Sol is growing up before  our eyes… the humanity aspect, which people are connecting with in  this program, is what’s actually the fuel for doing more.”

Speaking on being a first-time dad (and the first Sauti Sol member to be a father), Polycarp shared that having a baby is a cocktail of anxiety, excitement and fear sometimes. “You just have to stay positive because there’s mental health and postpartum depression that comes with it. These are some of the things I’d like to talk about to help other dads and dads-to-be.”
