Njoro wa Uba S1-9Watch episodes now
Praised by fans as the most relatable Kenyan comedy and the most realistic portrayal of what taxi drivers in Nairobi go through, Njoro wa Uba follows Joe Kinyua (The Whistle Blower) in the titular role of Njoro, a man who’s forced to become a taxi driver in Nairobi to make ends meet after losing a lucrative job due to allegations of fraud.
In season 6 of this beloved Kenyan comedy-drama, Njoro welcomes a change of scenery as he relocates from Nairobi to Mombasa. But his trials and tribulations don’t change because taxi drivers go through the same struggles no matter where they are.
“Njoro’s life is a reflection of our struggles. We struggle with love, finances, injustice, friendships, insecurities, basically everything. But even at our lowest, as Kenyans, we have a way of finding humour in most situations. It is important to have our audience relate with Njoro’s experiences, but also to find a light moment where they could also find some humour in their own situations,” producer Lucy Mwangi (Auntie Boss, Varshita) says of Njoro.
At the 2019 Kalasha Awards, Njoro wa Uba was nominated for Best TV Comedy and Best Lead Actor for its star Joe Kinyua.
