High-flying Kenyan music and dance group Matata has released a new collaboration “Oversized T-shirt” with multi award-winning Kenyan music group, Sauti Sol.
The upbeat song is Matata’s lead single off their upcoming debut album ‘Super Morio’.
“Oversized T-shirt” music video instantly made an entrance on top Kenyan charts upon release. Still rocking music charts, the visuals depict a laid-back but fun and intimate hangout with eye-catching choreography.
Being close associates, this collaboration between Kenya’s biggest music groups was foreseeable. The project was made in between Nairobi when Matata released their ‘Unaware EP’ and Oslo where Matata reside and Sauti Sol were touring earlier this year.
Matata has been quietly putting together their much-anticipated debut album Super Morio, a hero-anchored project that echoes their Kenyan heritage, ingenuity, and the pursuit of their ambitions.
The group was founded in 2016 when the members, who coincidentally knew each other from Kenya, met in Oslo, Norway where each of them had gone to pursue further education.
The members who had been notable figures in the Kenyan dance industry prior to moving to Norway decided to join forces and form the group become a recognized dance brand in the Norwegian dance and urban scene.
In 2017, the group started pursuing music and slowly started combining the art of dance and music in their performances. But it was not until 2018 when the group started recording music and released their first single “Denge” in August 2019.
