NYANYE – Recreating Kenya’s league of extravagant grannies

Nyanye is the story of Kenya’s LEAGUE OF EXTRAVAGANT GRANNIES who were once corporate and government leader in the 1970’s but are now retired. They now live the retired high life travelling to exotic and remote areas within Africa to explore, party and enjoy in exclusivity.

Project Nyanye depicts the beauty of aging and intersects with a beautiful sense of nostalgia combined with the satisfaction and peace that comes with retirement. Osborne Macharia (ranked amongst the 200 best digital artists worldwide) and his team caught up the legendary grannies in Somalia shortly after they landed.  Little is known these ladies until now.
