Sauti Sol will part ways after their forthcoming Madaraka day tour in the USA. The group members have already traveled for the scheduled performances.

In a statement, Sauti Sol told fans that they will take an indefinite hiatus (according to the Urban Dictionary, it's a fancy term for 'break up'. Bands use it to think it will soften the blow on their fans, when they infact know the harsh truth) after this tour.

"The upcoming tour across the US, Europe and Canada, is a chance for fans to immerse themselves in the magic of Sauti Sol one last time. before the band takes a break from group projects for a while."

The group expressed deep love and gratitude for their fans over the years supporting them in all ways.

"With the indefinite hiatus marks the end of a specific chapter. As close friends and business partners the band members are eager to explore fresh, creative avenues and embark on personal endeavours," added the statement.

Sauti Sol's encore performance will take place at the third annual Sol Fest in Nairobi on December 16th.
