Kenyan matatu culture has in the recent past received media attention from across the globe, even making it to silver screen in blockbuster serials such as Sense 8. Brian, a brilliant young guy, had the budding idea of showcasing just how rich the Kenyan culture is by establishing what is now famously known as the matwanamatatuculture.

A chef by profession, Brian together with his buddy and co-founder of the matwana culture James aka Kreative Kip who is a genius creative designer enthusiastically run the movement. Matwana culture has an annual event that is held every December to celebrate matatus in Kenya. The categories in the Nganya awards range from graphics, interior design, customer service and the likes.

Last Saturday, the two friends successfully went for the first ever road trip to Naivasha dubbed The Matwana Experience. Gathering a crowd of 33 passengers each paying Kshs. 1500 for the maiden trip, the experience was worth each shilling spent. There was a DJ, a media team, a safety team and Brian and Kip provided customer services.

The journey commenced shortly after 10 a.m. at Nairobi’s Jevanjee Gardens after the flashy youth had all booked their seats. Like they’d expected there was loud music, which is the whole idea and the signatory theme for urban Kenyan matatu. Dances and chit chats within the matatu flew off to social media. When asked by Varcity, Bryan commented by saying,

“Seeing all these people happy man, that’s what makes me do this with so much passion.”

A stop by the Great Rift Valley Escarpment view point was the thrill of the first half of the trip. Here youth met with nature in a celebration of culture on an edgy roadside mountain, a mesmerizing combination!

Later on roast meat was served with ugali at a stop in Narok. The #cityzens feasted to their fullest with chants of “Tuongeze nyama!”

At Naivasha, the final destination, we were treated to a boat ride, a mini-football match and a nice view of Lake Naivasha at Crayfish Restaurant.

The experience ended well with a safe ride back to Nairobi late in the evening.  Matwanamatatu culture is planning to organize more of such trips within the coming weeks. To get in touch and be part of this culture, contact Brian on info@matwana.co.ke.
