Sauti Sol completed back to back award wins after scooping ‘Best Group’ award during the just concluded MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA 2016). The band beat off stiff competition from Mi Casa (ZA), Navy Kenzo (TZ), R2Bees (NG) and Toofan (TG) to scoop one of the key categories at the world acclaimed award show.
The four were joined on stage by manager, Marek Fuchs and publicist, Anyiko Owoko before Bien gave a short speech thanking God, fans and a loyal team for rallying behind them for years. The award comes just days after Sauti Sol scooped a similar award at Africa Diaspora Music Awards beating off Mi Casa (ZA) , Yamoto Band (TZ), Radio and Weasel (UG), R2Bees (GH), Bracket (NG), Bana C4 (CG) and Os Moikanos (AO).
