Sauti Sol
Three Kenyans have made it to the 2014 MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) nomination list. They have been selected in different categories and they include Lupita Nyong’o, Amani and Sauti Sol. The event is back after being on hold for three years after the sponsors had pulled out. It will be held on 7th June in South Africa at the Durban International Convention Center.
