Kenyan band Sauti Sol approve the importance of collaborations after Burna Boy’s Grammy Awards win.

Burna Boy and Wizkid registered massive wins with their 63rd Annual Grammy Awards success over the weekend.

Burna Boy, real name Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, bagged the much-coveted Grammy award in the Best Global Album category for his ‘TWICE AS TALL’ album.

The wins in West Africa have inspired East African music giants, Kenyan band Sauti Sol in particular, to realise the importance of collaborations.
