Safara GATHIMITI, a talented band group in Kenya
When we always walk in the street of a big town we do encounter several things some nice some bad but most we do see several streets scattered all over the town like Safara Gathimiti.
The street kids are always known in the crime section and while one walks in a street where there are street urchins, the one thing that always runs into one’s mind is the safety of their belongings. Why? The street kids are always known to be phone and Bags snatchers and in most cases ladies do suffer most.
Many people are always known to look down upon these kids because they are not in their level of richness. But this group I am about to talk about has a very different positive story that gives a different view on street kids.
So guess what, it is a different story for these four street urchins in Nairobi. The group which is branded as Safara Gathimiti , is a band of four young talented street men in Nairobi.
The boys group is known to be upcoming gospel musicians and if you check on their YouTube channel at you will just be amazed by the work they do.
SAFARA Gathimiti is a band group specialised in singing gospel music. Most of their songs is sorrounding the life of street kids in cities,the life street kids goes through.
The ground came to light after YouTube MUNGAI Eve aired them. This made the band to be known to most Kenyans and this has also seen Safara Gathimiti attending the album launch of Mr Seed.
It is also in this event that Eric Omondi gifted street kids turned gospel artists his expensive silver neckpiece, shades, and KSh 80k Nike sneakers. He also gave them KSh 30k strictly for upkeep and promised to record their music video.
In several interviews, the boys said how they were once thieves in the streets of Nairobi. They were the baddest group who could never leave your phone with you.
When they realised they have a talent, they formed a group dubbed Safara Gathimiti and turned to do God’s work. Their channel has a massive over 30K subscribers on youtube and is doing well.
Hopefully one day they will get out of the streets and leave a normal life.
