Bien Baraza recalls accident that cost him 16 teeth

Bien Baraza, the lead singer of popular boy band Sauti Sol, on Sunday, August 31, recounted an accident that cost him 16 teeth.

While appearing on Churchill Show, the singer disclosed that he was crossing a busy Nairobi road in the company of his sister in 2007 when the accident occurred.

He recalled that after he was hit, he stood up, relieved that he had not broken any of his limbs until he got to the hospital.

“In 2007, I was crossing the road with my sister, Two Kambas (a rap duo) and Wendy Kimani. We were from doing a song about the post-election violence.

“We were crossing the road at Tuskys Pioneer in town headed towards Kenya Railways. I saw a car speeding and my sister noted that the driver was reckless and was bound to hit a pedestrian,” he narrated.

He added that when he turned, the car had inched closer to him and all he remembered from the fateful day was him flying in the air before landing with a thud.

“I remember turning around and that car was right in front of me and that guy hit the life out of me. He hit my knees and I hit my face on the windshield.

“I just remember flying in the air. I woke up on the ground and my sister was there. It was a hit and run so the guy just sped off. Luckily I just stood up, I didn’t break any limbs,” he stated.

He discovered that his teeth were missing when he looked at himself in the mirror after he got admitted at Nairobi Hospital, the same hospital contained in his birth certificate.

In his narration, however, the musician explained that as much as records indicate that he was born at the hospital, he knows he did not.

“I was born here in Nairobi. I was born at Nyayo Stadium roundabout in a car. My mother was headed to the hospital and the day doubled as my sister’s first birthday,” he narrated.

“The person who made him cool down is the late Papa shirandula coz I called him crying,” she said.

“I would beg him not to shout. One day he shouted at me mtoto wangu alishtuka and he was too young. I told myself this is not the environment.”

God came through so much for me as I had gotten a mega deal that gave me good money.

Why I quit music to be a truck driver in the US – Nyashinski

Published

on

Back in 2016 rapper Nyashinki’s music career was at it’s peak, he quit and relocated to the USA.

Nyashinki quit and started a career a a truck driver this was when his trajectory as a member of Kleptomaniacs was on the up and up.

Together with his family, the rapper, real name Nyamari Ongegu, got a chance to relocate to Delaware, USA, despite being aware he was cutting short his career.

Speaking on his YouTube channel first episode, Nyashinski said life did not favour him while there.

“When we moved abroad, I had completely quit music. I was working back in the States as a truck driver,” he said.

“I used to drive a lorry, trying to survive.”

NyashinskiThe ‘Malaika’ hitmaker says the first two years he was in Delaware, then he moved to Michigan.

“That experience taught me a lot. Two things that were life-changing for me back then was one, when I was here, I was a star,” he said.

“People recognised me everywhere and we were doing what we loved. I moved from a place where I was known and getting a bit of favours here and there to a place where no one knows me.”

“No special treatment and you must work because you have to eat.”

Another major lesson he learned in the 10 years he was away was having people around you and conversations are very important.

“That was coupled with the fact I was used to having people around me to a lonely life of driving a truck,” he said.

“There you are alone for over 16 hours. You only stop to fuel, sleep, shower and use the bathroom. So you find yourself enjoying small conversations with people you meet for five minutes. At least it was a way from that cage.”

He said the lines on the road even become hypnotising after a long distance and he looked at them, thinking about his life.

“I accepted that this is my life,” he said.

He says despite the hustles, he enjoyed living a normal life, where no one knew him. He could walk in a mall, on the roads and be normal.

The reason he came back to Kenya is after realising he was living a life that he felt he was not using his intelligence or exerting his passion and purpose.

“So back in the States, my friend told me to just go in studio and exert that pressure as a lyricist,” he said.

“I did not have to release the songs. But I found myself listening to a beat, creating a song and then wanting to perfect it and then I want people to listen. That is how I found myself back into the music world and came back home.”

Nyashinki has since been releasing hit after hit and recently, he released ‘Lucky You’ album, which he is still promoting.
