...is an award-winning Kenyan businessman and officially a Washingtonian, for the amount of decades he has resided in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. Kevin founded the Swahili Village Group from very humble beginnings with his wife. Now almost 40 years later, he has utilized this organization to build an authentic connection between the African culture and the rest of the world. The African culture is very misinterpreted globally and it is time we stood up and displayed the authenticity of our originality in culture, food, arts and music.
He has achieved this currently through a set of fine dining African restaurants. The first restaurant located in the state of Maryland was a gathering place for Africans away from the motherland to feel at-home through every meal, drink or visit. After serving the local community and travelers from far and wide in this humble restaurant for 25 years, receiving dining awards and community recognition by different national and international groups, he began his expansion to accomplish his original mission throughout the United States of America.
Today the Swahili Village Group is a culmination of fine dining, cultural events, philanthropic initiatives and even impact international policies through the different facets of the entire organization.
Kevin Onyona lives with his beautiful wife and 4 children in the suburban area of Maryland.
