So… Chaguo La Teeniez went down last week on Saturday at the Carnivore grounds, well, a lot went down.

Tears were shed over winning, fans screaming for their favourite acts on stage and eyebrows raised at the entrances.

Every year, the CHAT Awards develop a theme that resonates with the youth culture. This year’s ‘Revved Up’ was inspired by the positive aspects of Kenya’s matatu culture. To Kenya’s youth, the matatu is more than just a mode of public transport; it is a vehicle that allows them to interact with the pillars of youth culture; from fashion and music, to technology and entertainment the matatu plays an influential role in their daily lives.

Furthermore, the matatu culture has spawned a fully fledged industry that has created thousands of jobs and even played a massive role in promoting Kenya’s music industry, via the street DJ mixes.
This year’s CHAT Awards was also graced by Jamaican superstars QQ and Denyque.
