Fans Disappointed After Sauti Sol Cancel Europe Shows

Kenyan afro-pop band Sauti Sol have announced they were forced to postpone their much-anticipated Europe shows.

In a statement signed by the band members Bien Aime, Polycarp Ochieng, Willis Austin and Delvin Savara, Sol said that due to delays occasioned by the Ukraine crisis, their travel visas were not approved despite applying in advance.

“It’s with the utmost regret that we once again postpone our shows in Europe. Despite applying in time, we are informed by the UK embassy that delays occasioned by the Ukraine crisis has made it increasingly difficult to procure the necessary travel visa in timely manner,” read part of the statement.

The band expressed their disappointment and apologized to everyone who had already set time to go to their concerts across Europe. However, Sauti Sol promised to make it up to their fans in due time.

“It is with heavy hearts that we disappoint our fans and only hope to make it up to everyone that looked forwards to joining Us,” said Sauti Sol.

Despite the setback, the award-winning boyband expressed confidence that tickets purchased by their fans will remain valid until they announce new dates.

“We are working with the UK venues and promoters to have the rescheduled dates announced next week, when we have word of when the UK Visas will be granted. All tickets will remain valid,” they said.

The band had several concerts already planned for the year, including performances in Portugal, London and Netherlands on June 24, 25 and 28 respectively.

Sauti Sol’s apology was well received by a section of their fans, who, though disappointed, said they would wait for their performance.

However, despite the band’s assurance that the tickets would remain valid, several fans raised concerns and demanded refund – especially those who booked transport and hotels to the venue, lamenting that they won’t be refunded.

She Was Young At The Time, Tanasha Donna On Grudge With Bey T

Published

Barely two years after Tanasha Donna and Bey T stormed the internet to fight over a catchphrase, Tanasha has finally given details on her beef with the rapper for the first time.

According to the musician, the misunderstanding came after they both disagreed on an issue.

In an interview with KISS FM, the musician cum entrepreneur said Bey T was young and was misled by people into instigating petty quarrels.

“Honestly speaking I think it was just a misunderstanding, it started over a quote, the ‘Kenya to the world’ thing. And I like she was young at the time and like people tried instigating drama. You know how people can be… people can easily corrupt one’s mind, especially when there is nothing going on,” she said.

According to Tanasha, it is easy to have the feeling that people are out to kill your shine when starting, especially as a young girl in a competitive industry.

“Talking from experience as a young girl you can feel easily like people are out to get you or steal your shine…but I feel like she’s a great artist so she was trying to spit some bars which she is amazing at and I’ll give her credit for that,” she added.

 The mother of one confirmed that they have a good relationship following their beef  and now are both open to the idea of collaborating with Bey T even though the two have never met yet.

“Why not? I mean I like her music and she’s amazing. Plus, right now, we’re at a good place, we haven’t really met but we have people in common whom we work with,” she said.

Amid their banter, Bey T went ahead to drop a diss track called ‘Don to the Donna’ attacking Tanasha for allegedly sampling her music in 2019.

“Someone tell Tanasha to stop wave riding,” Bey T wrote on Instagram at the time.

According to the rapper, the phrase “Kenya to the World” originated from her, but Tanasha stole it.

NAACP partners with Lancôme to offer the Write Her Future Scholarship Fund, which focuses on empowering women through literacy, mentorship, and entrepreneurship.

Lupita, who is the Lancôme Ambassadress, indicated that she always had big dreams from childhood and education played a huge part in helping her realize them.

“I believe that learners change the world. I am so thrilled to join Lancôme, on behalf of their Write Her Future Scholarship Fund, to award this incredible group of women with these game-changing scholarships,” she said.

Popular Kenyan website, Tuko.co.ke, reported that two years ago, Lupita Nyong’o was nominated for four awards in the 51st edition of the NAACP Image Awards.

The actress, who did not manage to attend the award ceremony, emerged as a winner in two of the four categories she was nominated.
