Man In ‘Nitakufinya’ Viral Meme Speaks

Spread the love


Matendechere came out of the closet by revealing to K24 TV on Saturday, July 3 that he is currently a father of nine children as well as a husband of two wives.

Aron Asiiba Matendechere, the man behind the nitakufinya video that has been trending for the entire week, has spoken.

Matendechere came out of the closet by revealing to K24 TV on Saturday, July 3 that he is currently a father of nine children as well as a husband of two wives.

“I have two wives and nine kids”, he told the TV station as he introduced one of his wives and his two sons to the public. 

Matendechere also stated that his family is currently happy about the viral video.

“My family is happy about my fame, but I have not benefitted from it,” Matende said.

His wife, Olpha Moraa, expressed her joy on her husband’s explosive rise to fame and that she has been spending a majority of her time on social media to check on Kenyans’ reactions to the video.

“I have been on the internet the whole night to see what people are saying about the video. But there are people who are using it badly,” Moraa however revealed.

Matendechere added that currently runs a salon-cum barber shop business.

The viral video was traced to a K24 TV investigative exposé in 2013 that shone the light on illegal power connections in informal settlements. The main focus in this case was the Mukuru kwa Njenga slum in Nairobi County.

Charles Musyoka told a reporter assigned to the story that electricity wires have been the main source of danger amongst residents owing to the fact that they had been left naked.

“Everyone here uses the illegal connections, I was once electrocuted and it affected my hands,” he narrated before he was interrupted by a man who was part of a crowd behind him.

The crowd had appeared concerned that his revelation was likely to bring them into the crosshairs of a crackdown by the government and the Kenya Power Company which has tried and failed to cut the irregular connections.

Matendechere was irked by Musyoka’s statements and could be heard issuing threats to witnesses. 

Asiongee mambo ya stima, aongee mambo ingine. Mambo ya stima wachia watu wa stima waongee. Ongea unataka serikali akupee kazi (Stop talking about electricity matters. Let the people involved speak about it. Ask the government to give you a job),” he fired.

Musyoka retailiated by stating that “mimi niko na kazi‘” (I have a job). 

Matendechere then walked away, but with a stern warning that would become this week’s viral phrase.

Nitakufinya (I’ll deal with you), to which Musyoka responded by daring him to live up to his threat.

Eight years later, Matendechere added that he and Musyoka were good friends and maintained that friendship to date.

He also added that they still live at the Mukuru kwa Njenga slum, where the exposé was shot.

“I know him. He is my good friend, only that I was not happy about what he was telling the media that day,” he said.

He further dismissed reports that Musyoka was electrocuted as he claimed in the video.

“Musyoka got injured while working in a certain company in Industrial Area. He was lying that he was electrocuted. That is why I intervened,” Asiiba revealed.

Nitakufinya has since risen to a national meme and Kenyans have thoroughly played with the term to come up with memes. At one point, the phrase has even been sneaked into a pickup line.
