Sauti Sol’s Chimano has said that he is happy with his first song “feeling Friday.”
He said that the song was inspired by the 80’s culture where fashion, culture and music meant a lot to him.
He added that sounds of that era have a lot to do with his inspirations as a music star.
“I needed to be myself fully because of my found conviction and I needed to have the courage to be that for others, to inspire them to see that they can also be themselves,” he said.
The Sauti sol band member says that it was the first time he was putting his creativity to the test alone.
“I am serving realness as we all should,” he said.
“I have fully started to express myself and deep down for me, this is an expression of happiness and freedom.”
He said the “Feeling Friday” song, which features members of the LGBTQ community, is about embracing your body, your outfit, your crew and your hard-earned money.
“Going out and having fun shouldn’t be an uphill task because you immediately start thinking of the inhibitions that may affect you,” he said.
“This song is about having a good time and in my case a good ass queer time. It’s a feeling of freedom. Do you, be extra, be alive and free! That’s ‘Friday Feeling!'”
The song was produced by DTX and co-written by Chimano, Don Ngatia and Bensoul.
It is the first single off Chimano’s upcoming EP album, ‘Heavy is the Crown’, expected to be released next year.
He says the EP challenges toxic masculinity, prejudices and hypocrisy.
“The crown in this case is on you and me. If you go through life in kindness, standing up for your dreams and aspirations, respecting your fellow human beings and respecting the right of others to live unrestricted as long as it’s not an infringement on your human rights, then you have a crown on your head.”
“It’s hard to ignore the burdens society puts on you but by believing and focusing on yourself while being kind to others, you have crowned yourself and don’t need anyone to validate that.”
