Matata

BIOGRAPHY

The Matata Quintet, one of Kenya’s finest mainstream music groups, is a household name with a string of successes to their credit.

Marcus Ojiambo, Ken Kimathi, Richie Mathu, Freddy Milanya, and Festus Mwenda, the group’s five members, have been continuously delivering tunes with outstanding scripts accompanied by equally fantastic music videos.

The group was created in 2016 when the members, who had previously met in Kenya, met in the Norwegian city of Oslo, where each of them had gone to complete their education.

Prior to arriving in Norway, the members had been well-known personalities in the Kenyan dance business, so they decided to band together and form the MATATA crew, which quickly became a well-known brand in the Norwegian dance and urban scene.

The ensemble, which raps in Sheng and a blend of Kikuyu, has wowed audiences with its dance performances.
