Sauti Sol and Showmax have sealed a deal that will see the video company air the second season of the band’s Sol Family docu-reality series.
The series will hit the platform from March 15 this year.
Sol Family, which premiered in August 2020, features the day to day lives of Bien, Savara, Chimano and Polycarp. It also airs the behind the scenes lives of Sol Generation protégés Nviiri the Storyteller and Bensoul.
The show is quite interesting and has since won the hearts of many because of its authenticity. It also made it to Showmax’s list of most-watched shows on the platform for weeks.
Sharing the news about the upcoming new season, producer Eugene Mbugua (Our Perfect Wedding Kenya, Concert Nyumbani) called season one a “resounding success”, especially among the many Sol Generation fans who felt that they got to know and relate with their stars better.
As to what fans can expect in season two, Mbugua says, “We have an exciting season lined up which we have been filming since July of last year. We’ll give the audience a more in-depth look into the couples on the show. We’ll also get to take you behind the scenes of what happens when Sauti Sol, Nviiri, and Bensoul hit the stage.”
While their biggest challenge filming season one was COVID-19, Mbugua reveals that things have been much easier this season after some restrictions were lifted.
Thus, the audience will also get to follow Sauti Sol and Sol Generation for an out-of-town experience as the show travels to Meru, Diani, and even Lamu.
