Kenyan music group, Sauti Sol and Nigeria’s musician, Rema, are billed to perform at this year’s independence day Celebrations of Uganda, African Entertainment has gathered.
The Uganda performance will somewhat be a reunion for Sauti Sol, a group which has in recent time seen its members doing solo projects, leading to speculations that it might be falling apart.
The group’s members Austin Chimano, Bien Baraza, Delvin Mudigi, and Polycarp Otieno have all released solo projects.
But Sauti Sol’s entire band will be performing in Uganda during the independence weekend at the Afropalooza festival.
Sauti Sol and Rema are said to be the only guest artistes during the 60-year independence celebrations of Uganda.
About 60 artists will be headlining the three-day show.
Sauti Sol is a Kenyan band formed in Nairobi, Kenya, by vocalists Bien-Aimé Baraza, Willis Chimano, and Savara Mudigi in 2005.
About Uganda’s independence
Uganda became an independent sovereign state on 9 October 1962. The late British monarch, Elizabeth II, remained head of state as Queen of Uganda until the link with the British monarchy was severed on 9 October 1963 and the Kabaka (King) of Buganda, Sir Edward Mutesa II, became the first President of Uganda.
