Kenya’s award-winning Afro-pop boy band Sauti Sol have parted ways with their Czech-born manager Marek Fuchs.
Sauti Sol had to drop Marek after signing a new record deal with international talent agency company, the Africa Creative Agency, earlier this year.
“After we signed a new record deal, it came with new rules, which is why Marek is currently not our manager,” Bien said.
Bien, however, noted that they will still be working with Marek in other ways. Marek, husband to stylist Annabel Onyango and the newest daddy in town, has a new company called AfricaCentric Entertainment, that specializes in branding and entertainment.
“It is only that we have also grown because we now have Sol Generation, but we will still be working with him, although he will not be managing our day-to-day work anymore. We are currently managed by a South African manager, ACA,” Bien said.
The Sauti Sol guitarist also praised Marek as a good manager whom they have done amazing work together.
“He is a hardworking person and we will still have him as a brother. Life is about growth and so we have to keep growing,” he said.
Marek who recently became a father of two after his wife Annabel Onyango gave birth to their son said that the last seven years with Sauti Sol has been amazing. In an Instagram post, he said he could not be more proud and excited for the group as they start their new journey.
Bien added that the band is currently working on an album. “To all our fans, we thank you for the amazing support and we wish that you continue supporting our new signees under Sol generation,” he said.
As reported by The Sauce, Sauti Sol recently released a collaboration with Tanzanian songbird Nandy.
