Sauti Sol and Ali Kiba collabo video released
The long-awaited collabo between all-male Kenyan band Sauti Sol and Tanzania’s top act Ali Kiba is finally out.
Sauti Sol released the video of the new hit, Unconditionally, Bae on Thursday evening.
The song features Ali Kiba, who in the video gives Sauti Sol a run for their money with his suave dancing style.
Shot in the breathtaking English Marina Point, the video displays the gents’ well-toned bare chests as they dance to the song which Sauti Sol have described as a “danceable love ballad”.
And indeed it is as they have incorporated a dance video right after the official music video.
“We are thrilled to release this song. Our fans have been waiting for it, even demanding it, and it’s time to honour that. Africa, we hope you love our first collaboration with Alikiba as much as we do. Alikiba is a legend and we are honoured to work with him,” a statement by the band read.
Ali Kiba’s presence in the hit is evident as he takes onto the lyrics with his exceptional vocals and in the dance video he shows his best moves that are likely to be emulated widely in Kenyan clubs.
The Bongo flavor maestro said the collabo was meant to be, “From the first time I met Sauti Sol I knew I had to work with them. I admire their style and I found that they loved mine too. It was so much fun and seamless working on this project. My Bongo family and fans across Africa – we present this to you.”
