We have had so many opportunities to get Kenyan based artists or representatives international recognition. This was probably the mother of all loads. Sauti Sol had won the MTVEMA African Act and beat Davido from Nigeria. All they needed now was support through votes to make it to the final list of MTVEMA nominees.
They lost to Mohammed Assaf according to this list.
Africa/India/Middle East: Mohammed Assaf
Australia/New Zealand: 5 Seconds of Summer
Europe Central: Revolverheld
Europe East: Dawid Kwiatkowski
Europe North: One Direction
Europe South: Alessandra Amoroso
Japan/Korea: B.A.P
Latin America: Dulce Maria
North America: Fifth Harmony
Southeast Asia/China & Hong Kong/Taiwan:Bibi Zhou

The worst truth is how Sauti Sol aren’t associated with Kenya. I’m not making false accusations. Check out this screen shot:
