Music group Sauti Sol is under fire on Twitter for delving into political issues and discrediting both sides of the Kenyan political divide.
This after the group shared a tweet on how the two major political outfits – Jubilee Party and Nasa – are just full of empty slogans and no development record attached to them.
Kenyans on Twitter quickly became vulgar and hurled all sorts of insults to Sauti Sol for the pronouncement.
TIBIM, TIALALA & TANO TENA are all empty slogans with no data and development records attached to them.

The tweet has been retweeted over 400 times with over 300 comments from Jubilee and Nasa supporters.
Users told off the music group advising them to stick to art and stay out of political matters while others encouraged them to keep speaking out like rapper Eminem did with regards to US President Donald Trump.

Sadly, much like senseless lyrics like “prrrra! pa pa pa pa pa…skiaaa! kutuntun…poom poom”…those slogans are what sell to crowds, lol!
