Nairobi - Kenyan boy band Sauti Sol are known primarily for making
exceptionally good music, with fans from across the world.
When it comes to
their fashion sense, most people have noted their ever progressive style,
featuring clothes that most “common mwananchi” would never dare to wear.
outlandish fashion sense has made them global fashion icons, with one of their
getup's being featured at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery.
Done for the Fashion Cities Africa exhibition, 4 black
mannequins were dressed in clothes that Sauti Sol once wore during a coke
studio performance with Yemi Alade.
The piece also includes a picture of the
four of them in the same clothes during the actual performance. They took to
social media to express their gratitude.
" We're super honoured to have our
picture and style featured during the?#FashionCitiesAfrica exhibition
at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery," they said.
"This is the first major UK exhibition
dedicated to contemporary African fashion. We wore the outfits last year during
our ?#CokeStudioAfrica performance
with Yemi Alade," they added.
