After loosing the chance to bring home their first MTV Africa Music Award, Sauti Sol, being the gentlemen they are bowed out humbly. 

They tweeted, @SautiSol: “All your tweets and messages. THANK YOU! We lost but won the moment we got that recognition by @MTVbaseAfrica #Honoured #Humbled”

Anyhow, Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o won an award for Personality of the Year. That was the only Kenyan win this year. 

That said, as usual Kenyans on Twitter when all ham on Sauti Sol. 

Rapper Nonini came to the Money Lover stars defence. 

He tweeted, “Sad before awards started everybody was like all the best @SautiSol now that they missed that everybody is hating SMH #iLoveKenyanMusic.”

Another tweep added, “Even though u didin’t get the award @SautiSol we are proud atleast u got a nomimination au sio @Noninimusic.”
