‘He sings like an angel’ Sauti Sol announce their first sign in BenSoul under Sol Generation

Published

on


BenSoul has finally decided to take his career to the next level and he is pretty excited about the new venture in his career.

Sauti Sol had mentioned that they were going to sign a few new artistes this year other than being signed into a record label. BenSoul is part of their project under their Sol Generation.

The whole team came in on Breakfast With The Stars on KISS FM with Adelle and Shaffie and BenSoul explained how it all started.

we’ve been friends for a while so we were called in for a jam session with many artistes. so then later I got called and they said they want to sign me in. bien is the one guy who reached out a lot and here we are

So before Ben was taken up by Sauti Sol, he says he has been in the game professionally for a while.

i have been doing music professionally for 5 years up until he called me

What does he wish to achieve after accepting the call to be signed in under Sol generation?

I believe I want to send my message all the way to mashinani and they have the muscle to. a man is his message not what he does. so if my message gets to the intended reach then that is my happiness. and sol generation will help me do this

BenSoul is famously known for his song, Masheesha which took over the club as soon as it was launched. There is more to Ben than that. He is also an amazing songwriter. He has been part of many big artistes songs including the recent song, Telenovela by Kidum.

i have written telenovela by kidum, written for mercy Masika, nyashinski in one song, Ali Kiba, ben Pol, Band Becca, wendy Kimani, dela, h_art the band and Gilad

Sauti Sol has been silent hence so many people have called them out saying they have not signed in nor have they mentored anyone to become as successful as they have. Bien responded to this saying:

we have been thinking about this for over 2 years. so many problems came along INCLUDING finances and lack of strategy. we took time to review artistes to make sure they have some shelf life, not just a one hit wonder

So why BenSoul out of the many during the ‘jam session’?

 we picked him because he is good at everything, he sings like an angel writes like an angel and he can play so many instruments.

Bien insists this is not something for Sauti Sol but to encourage Kenyans that you can be anything you want.

its a plan to encourage guys who look up to sauti sol that from the lowest point in one’s life to a point where we are signing in artistes.

The members of the band have various roles. Chimano is all about the visual life and creative direction to give views what he called ‘a visual orgasm’.

Bien is all about public relations. To make sure the good things are out in the media and of course head of songwriters. In case you do not know, he mentioned that he just registered the Writers Association to make sure writers make money out of the beautiful art.

Exclusive: Sauti Sol make major moves by signing in to international music label

Delvin says he is all about music production, and the music structure and to also make sure artistes under Sol Generation earn their royalties.

Polycarp aka fancy fingers will handle A&R.

BenSoul dropped his first song under Sol Generation exclusively on KISSFM and I must say just like Bien said, he writes and sings like an angel. The song, ‘Lucy‘ he says was inspired by a girl he knew who dated two of his friends and the guys had no idea they were being played.

the song is from a girl who was dating two of my friends with out their knowledge

Zarika was looking for the points whilst Phiri was looking for a knockout but Zarika kept coming out of the corner with swings that caught the Zambian off-guard.

Phiri worked hard but did not land most of her blows and only took the fifth round while the rest went mostly Zarika’s way.

Zarika reminded the excited crowd in attendance how she earned her name Iron first by landing heavy Punches down Phiris way, that gained her vital points to stand tall as the WBC Champion.

It was the Kenyan’s third title defence in Nairobi against the 32-year-old Zambian who was bidding to reclaim her WBC belt lost in Mexico and hoping to atone for her first loss to Zarika.

NATO confirms plans for US military storage in Poland

Published

on


The Wall Street Journal reported that the $260 million facility will be located in Powidz, some 200 km (120 miles) west of Warsaw, and will house armoured vehicles, ammunition and weapons for a brigade.

Building work will start later this year and is expected to take two years, alliance chief Jens Stoltenberg told the Journal. A NATO official confirmed the report was accurate.

NATO has increased defences along its eastern flank in the wake of Russia’s annexation of Crimea and its role in the ongoing Ukraine conflict.

Battlegroups have been deployed in the three Baltic states as well as Poland and NATO has launched an overhaul of its command structure and is taking steps to improve how quickly it can move troops and equipment around Europe in case of incursion.

The practice of “pre-positioning” equipment in strategic locations is also aimed at making it easier to deploy resources quickly in a crisis.

Stoltenberg told the Journal the new facility would “underpin the increased US presence in Poland”.

Poland’s government has been beefing up its military ties with the US, last month agreeing to buy American mobile rocket launchers worth $414 million and a year ago signing a $4.75 billion contract for a US-made Patriot anti-missile system.

Warsaw has also been pushing for the US to open a permanent military base. Nearly 5,000 American troops are already stationed on a rotational basis as part of NATO operations.

Eichmann’s captor, Israeli ex-spy Rafi Eitan dead at 92: media

Published

on


Eitan, the handler for Jonathan Pollard, a US Navy analyst who passed Israel thousands of top secret documents, was himself wanted by American authorities for a time.

He died in the afternoon at Tel Aviv’s Ichilov hospital, the radio said, without giving further details.

“Rafi was one of the heroes of the state of Israel’s intelligence service in countless acts for Israel’s security,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement.

“We mourn his passing.”

Eitan also won a rare eulogy from the Shin Bet domestic security service, for whom he had worked.

“Rafi, who was one of the founders of the Shin Bet’s operations branch, led and participated in dozens of groundbreaking operations that will remain unknown for many years to come,” agency chief Nadav Argaman wrote in a statement.

“We grieve at his passing and are proud to continue on his path.”

Eitan was born on a kibbutz in British-ruled Palestine in November 1926.

He was nicknamed “Rafi the Stinker” after he fell into a sewer during a military operation prior to the establishment of Israel in 1948.

After his service in the elite Palmach arm of the paramilitary Haganah organisation, the forerunner of the Israeli army, he joined Mossad in the 1950s.

He rose to become the agency’s operations chief, commanding the operation to snatch Eichmann in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires and smuggle him to Israel.

The mastermind of the Nazis’ Final Solution, Eichmann was then tried and hanged.

The ability of the security services to bring him to justice was a source of pride for the Jewish state, which President Reuvin Rivlin called a momentous moment in Israel’s history.

In the 1980s, Eitan’s name came into the spotlight in a major crisis between Israel and key ally the United States.

He was the handler for Jonathan Pollard, a US marine analyst who handed thousands of top secret documents over to Israel between May 1984 and his arrest in November 1985.

Pollard served 30 years in a US prison. He was freed in November 2015 but given a five-year probation period during which he is barred from travelling.

The FBI had also issued an arrest warrant against Eitan, Pollard’s handler.

In 2006, at the age of 79, he was elected to Israel’s parliament as head of the Pensioners’ Party and appointed minister for senior citizens.

“I had a heart operation a year ago, I can’t see anything and I can’t hear anything, but I run every morning, I sculpt and my wife says I’m doing well,” Eitan said on becoming a lawmaker.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said in a statement Saturday evening that Eitan “was a born fighter who stuck to his mission and to what he knew to be right.”

“Our heads are bowed today in his memory,” he said.
