NAIROBI, Kenya, September 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Featuring  Sauti Sol 

100…it's a big number for age…a small number of words…a medium number for French fries. For many it is a time to measure success. It's a significant number for a cricket batsman. It makes water hit its boiling point. The first 100 days in office for most leaders is a signal of their success in office.  

Here at THE SCOOP, the number 100 (episodes) has been reached, and it's all been a huge amount of fun. From Salim's first conversation with accomplished veteran journalist Jeff Koinange to this week's rocking session with Sauti Sol, we've had a great time, and so has our audience. We've heard from 100 guests, from 24 countries, and traveled a bit to get to some of them. From Akon and Jude Law in Goma, DRC to Fred Swaniker at the African Leadership Forum in Rwanda, to Ferial Hafajee and Ali Mufuruki outside the CNN African Journalist Awards in Tanzania, to Salman Ahmed and Bob Dunn in New York and Ntare Guma and Ken Kragen in Los Angeles, California, THE SCOOP has worked hard to get to 100.

Now watched each week by over 1.5 million Kenyans on KTN News, and tens of millions of others across Africa and internationally, THE SCOOP will continue to bring you the anecdotes, insights and advice from Africa's top success stories. More is in store; more titans of industry like Bob Collymore and Chris Kirubi; more innovators like Sofia Bekele and Juliana Rotich; more living legends like Richard Leakey and Oliver Mtukudzi; and more hot entertainers like Ayden, Lexxus Legal and Octopizzo. 100 is just the start!

This week AFRICA24 MEDIA proudly presents the iconic Kenyan musical group Sauti Sol. It's four for the price of one, as the band checks in on the eve of their African continental tour. Salim sits down and finds out how two journalists, an accountant and a scientist became Africa's hottest boy band. We get to see a much more personal side as they laugh it up and reveal their Scoops! With so much to learn about this amazing band we had to make it into a three-part special! Be sure to tune into Part One to learn why Willis is not the best person to trust with money!

You can now watch THE SCOOP on KTN NEWS Saturday at 8 pm. Click on for more information on where THE SCOOP airs.
