Sauti Sol will share the stage alongside one of the country’s best ecologist and wildlife photographer Washington Wachira, Kamau Gachigi, Kisilu Musya a farmer and filmmaker and Fredros Okumu a mosquito scientist.

‘’Good morning fam, this is to let you know that we’ll be among the speakers at the #TEDGlobal2017 in Arusha, Tanzania. Come listen to ideas worth spreading.’’ The group posted online.
TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas usually in the form of short powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged and today it covers almost all topics ranging from science, business to global issues in more than 110 languages.
The first African TED edition was held in Arusha in 2007.
