Sauti Sol’s lead singer Bien Aime is in quarantine after he tested positive for Covid-19 last week.
Speaking in an interview with a local publication, Bien said he had a fever, joint aches and eye problems prompting him to seek medical attention.
“For the last couple of days, I have been indoors. I started feeling weak and so I decided since I was travelling to Uganda, I needed the tests done before, only for me to test positive.” He said
The singer also revealed that his wife Chiki however tested negative for the disease.
Since his getting his results, Sautisol was forced to cancel a gig in Uganda but instead sent Nviiri and Bensoul to represent Sol generation.
“We had a show in Uganda last week on Thursday. I had to cancel my attendance, but my boys, Bensoul and Nviiri, represented us.” He said
He further urged Kenyans to be cautious saying no matter how much precaution you take it might still get you.
Bien said dealing with Covid-19 is so expensive especially because it is not covered in the health insurance covers.
“I will be home for a while since I do not want to spread it. Corona will get anyone so long as we do not adhere to the said measures, to be honest, I have not been sick for a long time. I feel the treatment itself is very expensive, even for me. I have used Sh8,000 on medicines alone.Our healthcare system has not cushioned us, so once it gets you, you may end up spending too much from your pockets. It could be worse since it could even kill you.” he added
