An Oslo-based Kenyan gengeton sensation and a club night to remember


Through a string of hits and successful music videos, accompanied by dance challenges on platforms such as Tiktok, Matata has become the fastest rising international music act from Kenya today. They are a leading example of the burgeoning Kenyan music scene, and with the country’s growing influence on global music, Matata seems destined for still greater things.

Matata started out as a music and dance collective in Oslo, Norway a couple of years ago. They are a tightly knit group, consisting of five members: Marcus Ojiambo, Ken Kimathi, Richie Mathu, Freddy Milanya, and Festus Mwenda. Their primary influence is a Kenyan genre known as “gengeton” which incorporates elements of traditional Kenyan music (Genge) with reggaeton.

From the start, they have exhibited a special talent for producing catchy and humorous videos, filled with tight choreography and surprising twists. Combined with dance challenges, the videos for songs such as “Chini Chini”, “Mare Mare”, “Ruracio”, “Kata” and “Gengetone Love” have gone viral.

Matata have come far, without the help of major industry backing. They have toured their native country and in 2020, they earned a nomination in the MTV Africa Music Award (MAMA) in the “Best Alternative” category. The group has also been awarded Pulse Music Video Awards for ``Best Group Video of the Year´´ and ´´Best Choreography of the Year´´. They might not have caught the ear and the imagination of the Norwegian music industry just yet - but it is only a matter of time. We are proud to feature them at Oslo World 2022.

Juba, Mina and Tash LC from the DJ trio Boko! Boko! have been throwing parties since 2015. Their iconic b2b2b sets have been tearing up dancefloors in London and beyond with an energizing blend of club sounds from around the world.

They have played sets at prestigious venues such as Tate Modern, the Roundhouse and Brainchild Festival and have hosted online takeovers with Beatport, NTS and Keep Hush. With a number of exciting upcoming festival and club shows, Boko! Boko! are certain to be lighting up more dance-floors in 2022. At Oslo World, they will play a set after Matata’s concert at Blå in what will undoubtedly be one of the hottest club nights of the festival.
