Finally! Sauti Sol & Nyashinski Come Together For New Single 'Short N Sweet'

Kenya's A-List musical acts team up for a smooth, acapella-driven love track titled "Short and Sweet."

Since announcing their forthcoming new LP, Afrikan Sauce, Sauti Sol have been serving the continent with back-to-back bangers.

After collaborating with rapper Khaligraph Jones for the nostalgic hip-hop-fusion track "Rewind" in March, the band is not showing any signs of slowing down. It only makes sense that their long-awaited fifth installment would feature another Kenyan A-list act, Nyashinski.

Following a long hiatus in the states, Nyashinski returned to the Kenyan music industry with a bang in 2016 with chart-topping singles like "Malaika" and more recently "Bebi Bebi."

"Short N Sweet" sounds like an organic and almost effortless product of a jam session between two of Kenya's finest musical acts.


The track is evocative of the early Sauti Sol days, with a strong acoustic instrumentation and acapella-driven background vocals.

We already love the versatile and bold approach the band has taken with this new album, and we will be counting down days to its release.
