His career roots can be traced back to the Kabras region where he was weeding sugarcane plantations. His journey to professional football began after he completed his high school education.

According to Michezoafrika, Matasi was approached by one of his friends while they were in the field harvesting sugarcane. The friend introduced him to Kabrass United, which at the time was a new club and it was getting its squad together.

This marked his genesis to greater things when it comes to his career, the team made it to the FKL Cup finals where he ended up being the most spotted player in the match after he gave the Sofapaka boys a rough time getting into the net.

His performance during the match was spotted by one of the biggest Kenyan clubs, AFC Leopard. AFC Leopards is associated with the Luhya community. Being one of the best clubs in the club, getting a starting position as a prospect can be a little bit tricky.

However, for Matasi his start came accidentally after the club’s first-choice goalkeeper, Barnabas Tiema encountered an injury during a warm-up. It is in the records that an opportunity comes in a lifetime and once it lands on you, you seize it.

This was the case for Matasi since he utilized the opportunity he landed accidentally and impressed the team’s coach, earning himself more playtime. Matasi joined the club in 2011 after spending one season at his home club, Kabras. After sharpening and polishing his skills, Matasi left AFC in 2014 to join Posta Rangers where he again spent three seasons but this time around as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper.
