Speaking to this journalist, Bien said that he will invest part of the money in the next female artiste Sol Generation will be signing come January 2022.
“I want to invest that money in the next female artiste that Sol Generation is going to sign. Sol Generation is signing a female artiste in January and she is going to be the biggest artiste in the world and the woman of the moment, so I’m looking forward to that day and I can’t wait,” Bien said.
On November 5, 2021, the Sauti Sol lead vocalist was unveiled as the newest Sol Generation signee, complete with a Sh50 million deal.
The announcement coincided with the release of Bien’s new EP dubbed Bald Men Love Better, featuring the legendary pianist Aaron Rimbui.
The musician’s deal will last three years and comes just after Sauti Sol members launched their solo careers.
Sauti Sol as a group remains signed to Universal Music but Bien joined the Sol Generation roster as a solo artist.
He joins Bensoul and Nviiri The Storyteller who have been making waves in the music industry with songs like, Nairobi and Niko Sawa.
During the conversation, Bien also noted that currently the only Kenyan artiste he would wish to work with is Yaba.
“Kuwork na msee on a collaborative project at the tune of an Album si kama tu collabo za kawaida and ina demand msee akuwe committed to it as much as you are…kuna tu wasanii wenye ningependa kuwork nao na mmoja wao ni Yaba. Yaba is a very good artiste, na sai ako na album inaitwa Rhumbacane go an stream it,” he said.
