If you had one chance to change your past, what would you change?
To Sauti Sol and Kaligraph Jones, they would change nothing at all. At least according to the lyrics of their new song "rewind" which is the fourth single out of their collaborative project "Afrikan Sauce LP" in which they feature various African artists.
The song seems to celebrate the humble beginnings they came from as artists to where they are.
"Tulidandandia matatu, tukachezwa kwa matatu ona sasa tunachorwa kwa matatu..." is a line that probably best describes the artists who started from singing in high school music festival to being internationally renown artists.
The video which is directed by Sesan features clips and photos from the artists' humble beginnings to photos of the celebrated boy band posing next to celebrities like Brarrack Obama and Jay-Z.
"I remember doing shows bila pay, I swear it wasn't easy but still I pray. Kupiga Toughees ma boyz walipiga Jayz and now I got a bunch of kicks to give away," rhymes Kaligraph talking about his own musical journey.
Here is the official video:
