Sauti Sol has been nominated for the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2019, Kenyan Vibe reports. The band has been nominated for the ‘Favourite African Star‘ category alongside the likes of Stonebwoy from Ghana.
The awarding ceremony will take place on March 23rd in the United States. The award goes to the most voted for personality from the Nickelodeon TV fans as well as participants from other countries. The host for this year’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award is DJ Khaled.
Fashion blogger Silvia Njoki was the first Kenyan to be nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice award back in 2016. This was for the ‘Favourite African Fashion Blogger’ category.
International awards help the nominees reach wider audiences and build global brands. The exposure means that Sauti Sol gets more leverage in negotiating for better performance charges when they perform internationally. Sauti Sol is currently one of the best live acts in Kenya.
Sauti Sol has not been keen on social media urging us to vote for them. They are actively promoting their new record label, Sol Generation Records in the meantime. However, this does not mean we cannot participate in voting for them.
According to the Nickelodeon website, one can participate via Twitter. Simply tweet with the hashtag #VoteSautiSol #KCA. One tweet is enough. Voting closes on March 22nd.
Are you excited for Sauti Sol?
