Sauti Sol has released its latest single
The music video of Shake Yo Bam Bam was shot in Nairobi by legendary Nigerian video director Clarence Peters, in a series of upcoming collaboration videos with Sauti Sol. Shake Yo Bam Bam, a bona fide party track, is reminiscent of an earlier (90s) Kenyan music style, and fashion.
The lyrics of the song flaunt Sauti Sol’s celebration of hood vibes and street-smart youth who set trends and shape the urban culture. The styling and dance choreography emphasise this.
