Dennis Itumbi State House official comes to the rescue of Sauti Sol

  • Published:

Sauti Sol were trolled the whole Night

Kenyan Boys Band Sauti Sol have been on the receiving end after their controversial tweet on the famous slogans used by the NASA coalition and Jubilee.

Kenyans on Social Media trolled Sauti Sol for engaging in politics instead of concentrating on taking Kenyan music to the next level.

The Senior Director of Innovation, Digital and Diaspora Communication in the Office of the President Dennis Itumbi has defended Sauti Sol by affirming that the said Slogans are empty words.


Through his twitter hand, Itumbi has ironically asked Sauti Sol if it’s true that the said slogans of “Tialala and Tibiim” are empty words that sound like witchcraft bells.  

@sautisol it is true, Tialala & Tibiim are empty slogans that sound like Witchcraft bells. #TanoTena has Development evidence stiched to it.” Asked Itumbi.

In a post the awarding band rubbished the slogans associated with the two political party noting they were empty.

“TIBIM, TIALALA & TANO TENA are all empty slogans with no data and development records attached to them. A critical mass of this country is simply uneducated that's why these things turn us on. But to be honest why aren't these battles about manifestos and track records? In this country as long as you have money you can fart and people will cheer,” the post read.

Sauti Sol was trolled the whole night and before knowing it they were among the top trends on Twitter in the country.

ODM top officials in charge of communication - Philip Etale and Seth Odongo (popularly known as DIKEMBE) - joined Kenyans in bashing the group for posting a tweet that has since been viewed as politically incorrect.

Etale mentioned that the tweet affirmed his reasons for not listening to music produced by Sauti Sol.

“When I told my frens two years ago that I don't listen to @sautisol music & that ad rather Heart the band or Sukuma bin Ongaro, they laughed,” he tweeted.

Embakasi East MP Babu Owino also joined in the bandwagon and asked the artists to stick to their craft and leave politics out of their discussions.

“Concentrate on singing young men,” the MP said.
