The best bloggers in Kenya was awarded in a ceremony at the Radisson Blu in Upper Hill, Nairobi on Saturday evening.
It was a full house as bloggers and their families and friends converged at the newest five star hostel in town to see who would emerge the best amongst them in the different categories. The evening where everyone was dressed in African wear (it’s a style) saw the who’s who of the Kenyan blogosphere mill around before the ceremony started on time.
The trophies were handed out to the various categories with the winners going home with trinkets like the Galaxy A5 Phone, Intel Laptop bag, Samsung Gear VR and Mettā membership, Dinner for two at Tatu Restaurant at Fairmont, the Norfolk, two round trip tickets to Mombasa on Jambo Jet, Huawei GR5 Phone, and Samsung Gear VR. They also received large amounts of Safaricom credit.
At the end of the evening, the best blog in Kenya went to Biko Zulu with an overwhelming win over Owaahh, Lyra Aoko, Niaje.com and Techweez. This is not the first time for the popular Biko to go home with the best award as he has been winning the creative category award since the awards were started.
