Sauti Sol and This Kenyan High School Choir Made a Global Hit

Kenyan stars Sauti Sol enlist their old high school's choir to record the new music video for "Kuliko Jana."

Sauti Sol return to their old high school, Upper Hill School, in Nairobi to record the new music video for "Kuliko Jana."


Kenya's celebrated boy band released the black-and-white a capella video for "Kuliko Jana" less than a day ago and, since then, it's already racked up over 30,000 views.

The clip, which features Upper Hill School's Redfourth Chorus, has even moved the likes of Master P and Anthony Hamilton to post the video. Glee actress Amber Riley also lauded the song, "I don't understand what they are saying but I know it sounds beautiful.."

"Kuliko Jana," from Sauti Sol's Live and Die in Afrika album, speaks on the "steadfast love of the Lord," which is detailed more on the group's Instagram page.

The Upper Hill school choir (Redfourth Chorus) joins the band in the new video, which was filmed and directed by Timothy Mwaura and Joash Omondi (Fulfillment Limited).
