East African musical giants and multiple award winning act; Sauti Sol from Kenya have released a game-changing music video for ‘Kuliko Jana’, off their third album: Live and Die in Afrika.

The meaning behind the song is; the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end – they are new every morning.” Featuring Redfourth Chorus (Upper Hill School), the song’s beautiful yet powerful message has stormed the charts and resonated with fans across Africa and beyond.

A viral clip of Sauti Sol in an acappella version of ‘Kuliko Jana’ with the Redfourth Chorus caught the attention of international celebrities and media to the point where Amber Riley, star of the Emmy award-winning Show Glee, posted on Instagram, “I don’t understand what they’re saying but I know it’s beautiful. Sounds angelic- anyone know if there’s a full video?” Other celebrities who posted the viral video include Master P, Anthony Hamilton, JB Smoove and WorldstarHipHop, among other international news sites.

The video was filmed and directed by Timothy Mwaura & Joash Omondi of Fulfillment Ltd.

    Beautiful song, not every time shake bum bum shake bum bum…. There’s nothing that involves the mention of God that doesn’t turn out to be successful. 🙂

    I like how it’s so memorable “to the point that” Amber mentioned it -didn’t contribute to the music, didn’t drop any yet-unknown knowledge, didn’t spill any tea.. No,… just commented on her appreciation of good music, and that’s worth reporting. Are her ears any more fine-tuned to the quality of good music than the moin-moin seller on the street?

    There is something about the video that is hauntingly beautiful. It speaks to my soul and the boys just add something magical to the song. Africa is really rising. Let’s all support our own. Jeeez. We have to learn to accept and appreciate our own. African music to the world. I really like that we are moving beyond just academic excellence and our kids are doing music and arts and sports. Nice!!
