Abel Kayakih

Head of Content and Events, Nairobi

On completing his MA in Arts Management and working at The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge Abel made the move back to Kenya in 2013 after being away for 10 years. He has had over eight years of experience within the service industry from heading the private events at Capital Club East Africa’s first business club, running retail workshops for Starbucks to handling the production for a fashion house with tailors in Kibera.

He has a great understanding of the overall contrast and similarities of cultures which has heightened his insight into human nature and has made his interpersonal skills far more effective.

Abel joined the team in 2016 and has been overseeing our content initiatives both internal and across multiple platforms for Mettā Nairobi. In addition to that, he leads the events at the space, making sure we have meaningful, relevant and engaging content throughout the year.

Fun fact - his first job was as a radio host straight out of high school and he hasn’t stopped chatting since.
