    The guys from Kenyan group Sauti Sol certainly enjoyed their Guinness experience.

    “It’s a big deal for football fans like [ourselves],” the Kenyan afro-pop band told Goal, “and others still on the continent.

    “To have this kind of event opens up a different pandora’s box as far as football is concerned.”
