Music Volume That Cares…
Category : Stories
The other day, I was surprised the response from the matatu crew when a fellow passenger asked for the volume level to be raised. Here is a snippet of the conversation:
Passenger: Dere! Si tuongeze volume kidogo sasa…
Driver: Kwa nini? Si hapo iko tu sawa.
Passenger: Zii! Reggae sio tune iko na kelele.
Driver: Beyond hiyo volume level actually ni kelele.
Passenger: Haipigi kelele juu ni reggae.
Driver: Boss, unajua tunajaribu kusaidia watu hutumia simu, labda mtu ni msick na hataki kelele au kuna mtu sio fan wa hizo ngoma. Ndio maana siwezi ongeza volume.
Out of that conversation, you could understand that the driver was concerned about the passengers and could make you understand the need to conserve & make the traveler’s environment free of noise unless it turns out to be a “noisy journey”.
If all matatus were managed this way…
