"MATOPENI " is a Swahili-word literally meaning "in the mud".

As Mutinda says:

"Even as you pursue a better life and at times get stuck in the mud, you can still afford to smile".

The 10-track inspirational album speaking about happiness and contentment that can be found within humble surroundings and offers timeless, soul-searching melodies and contagious rhythms.

Vocals are in Swahili or Kikamba (Mutinda's mother-tongue)

The album features many great Kenyan artists such as Barbara Guantai , Abbi , Hellon, Kombo Chokwe Burns and Dave Mobb Otieno among others.
