sauti sol1Having been trolled by Kenyans over their unique fashion sense, Afro-pop group Sauti Sol is having the last laugh after one of their trademark looks was featured in a major UK fashion exhibition.

The look, which features draped capes and was described by a section of internet trolls as bedsheets, was featured at the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.

The exhibition is the first major UK exhibition dedicated to contemporary African fashion. The aim of the exhibition is to explore fashion style choices of individual ‘fashion agents’ from four African cities in Morocco, Nigeria, Nairobi and South Africa.

Sauti Sol were elated about the achievement, another first for the high flying Kenyan band, and shared photos of dressed down mannequins on social media.

“We’re super honored to have our picture and style featured on the#FashionCitiesAfrica exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery. This is the first major UK exhibition dedicated to contemporary African fashion. We wore the outfits last year during our#CokeStudioAfrica performance [email protected]
