From Sauti Sol’s upcoming album Live and Die In Afrika, set to be released in 2015, ‘NEREA’ features Amos & Josh and was released on Monday.
The message of ‘NEREA’ is somber yet strong and evokes emotion. The song gives hope, while applauding every day hustle in Africa, and celebrating all human achievement, whether considered big or small. The simple sound of the acoustic track is a perfect mesh of Sauti Sol’s and Amos & Josh’s harmonious vocals.
Written by Sauti Sol and co-written by Amos & Josh, the music video was directed by Enos Olik of Bokeh Family – who also shot Sauti Sol’s award-winning ‘SURA YAKO’ and Kenya’s Most Watched Video in 2014 ‘NISHIKE.’
