Matatu culture in Kenya has made the transport industry to become one of the exciting sectors. For the love of the famous series, Money Heist, a new matatu emerged full of graffiti themed with the movie including the driver’s attire.
This is not the first time matatu culture has surprised Kenyans since there have been others matatus in the past with graffiti representing different kinds of movies like Empire, Game of Throne and Prison Break.
In September 2016, international musician, Trey Songz visited Kenya and was so excited after seeing the type matatus in Nairobi. He was attracted to the then manyanga-coolest which was referred to as Catalyst from Rongai route.
He liked it more after boarding that he referred the experience like that of a live studio.
“The matatu ride was great. The music got really, really loud. It was loud, like a real live studio. Nyashinski explained to me the culture of matatus, you know the graffiti on the outside and it is just an amazing piece of culture and heritage” he said.
“To come somewhere and see such entertainment, life and love, such culture, just makes me feel that much closer to home. I look forward to experiencing much more. After the ride, I wasn’t able to do much else but get to the studio, which I’m here for.”
Matatu culture has become such a big deal that CNN featured it and Prison Breaks Tbag commented on a matatu bearing his image. Though facing some challenges that some official calls for its ban, president Uhuru Kenyatta said that the culture should not be killed because it is a way of job opportunity to the youth.
