Born in the Free State in a small town called Ficksburg, Matthew Kanniah is the founder and creator of Heart of Motion. He is a true car enthusiast who has made a name for himself in the Instagram and social media community as “The Car Guy”. He is also responsible for organising the biggest Instagram and photographer meet ups in South Africa.

Matthew really wanted to do something with cars in the media, but was unsure of how he could get out there. Instagram was his starting point, from there he has appeared on the radars of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as a serious international motoring influencer.

With a cult following on all social platforms, Matthew is slowly becoming one of South Africa's next big social media influencers and personalities, having regular appearances with Gareth Cliff on Cliff Central as well as the DSTV show IGNITION GT.

At only 25 years of age and with an already booming career, Matthew continues his passion for cars and people with the main aim of elevating and bringing attention to South Africa and it's motoring scene, with an aim of taking it to a global stage.
