sauti2Kenyan Afro pop band, Sauti Sol are not only sensational entertainers but their status in society often requires them to be looked upon by a younger generation, a fete they gladly took up by coming up with the SOMA SOMA initiative.

Launched in December 2012 at the Aga Khan Academy Mombasa, Sauti Sol’s Soma Soma Initiative was set up by the band to advocate for education for all youth in Kenya and Africa. On Monday 16th June, the initiative took them to Kilimani Primary School where they attempted and made history by breaking the Guinness World Book of Records for the largest reading gathering.

Through social media, here’s what they posted:

Today we made history at Kilimani Primary School. We were part of breaking the Guinness Book of World Record for largest reading gathering. So proud of the kids. May they grow to be Game and life changing human beings.#somasoma
