Tiwa Sage was recently featured in the internatioanl pop culture TV show, E! Entertainment Television. Now, Kenya’s celebrated all-male boy band, Sauti Sol will be featured on the show fashioned just for top African stars called E! VIP.
E! VIP launched earlier this year, giving audiences an in-depth tour of the lives of their favourite African stars – Tiwa Savage, Diamond Platnumz, Rita Dominic, Mafikizolo and D’Banj. Each 30-minute episode profiles a different local talent through both exclusive and archived footage, to give viewers a front row seat to their performances, public appearances, behind-the-scenes antics, homes and personal lives.
E! Entertainment Television has announced that E! VIP, the locally produced celebrity profile series, is returning to the channel on Monday 24 October at 19:00. Seven brand new episodes will showcase more of Africa’s talent as the biggest names in the entertainment industry welcome viewers to their world.
One of the episodes will feature Sauti Sol. The Kenyan stars have made long strides in the music industry. They turned heads with their hit album Live and Die In Afrika. They have toured the continent and the globe promoting the masterpiece.
The second part of the series will kick-off with a walk on the wild side of the hip-hop industry, as Cassper Nyovest shows off his digs and demonstrates the “Fill up the Dome” phenomenon for which he’s famous. And who could say no to a dedicated half hour with Ghanaian on-screen beauty Cassper Nyovest , or South African songstress Lira?
