Showbiz News

Murugi Munyi, Ajib Gathoni, Jackie Matubia and Blessing Lung’aho were among top celebrated influencers who were feted at the second annual Pulse Influencer Awards
The winners were presented with their awards at a gala event held on Saturday, October 15, 2022 at the Mövenpick Hotel & Residences and attended by Kenya’s top influencers.
The winners were selected after public nominations which shortlisted 10 nominees in each category and a public voting phase which drew up the awardees in September.
The Pulse Influencer Awards is a celebration of local creativity within each of the 6 Pulse Africa operating markets (Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda & Cote d’Ivore).
The Awards are also a platform that enables Pulse to bring together highest-flying creators and give sponsors a chance to connect with audiences.
Kenya was represented in the Pan-African Category where nominees were selected from all Pulse operating markets for a chance to win the Positive Impact, Voice of Africa, Community or Most Innovative Influencer of the Year.
Ms Ivy Mugo “Just Ivy” claimed the Most Innovative Influencer title as well as Kenya’s 2022 Business Influencer of the Year.
In her speech moments after receiving the award, she stated:
“Just Ivy Africa was born two months ago when I decided I’d like to give a voice to the voiceless in Africa, especially when it comes to women and money. I feel like this is validating in my journey and I just want to tell content creators out there that this business can pay and you can
change lives and impact the world. The eye is on Africa right now especially if you are creating content. From Africa to the world, thank you Pulse.”
The TMI Podcast and Murugi Munyi were the biggest winners of the night, claiming three titles – YouTube Influencer of the Year, Podcast Influencers of the Year and Instagram Influencer of the Year.
Pulse East Africa MD, Wamuyu Kiragu stated:
“I’d like to thank the Influencers, this night would not have been possible without the work you do. We honour the art, and the content you create and it is such a pleasure to offer a platform where you are celebrated. I wish you every success from here onwards and even if you didn’t win, your work is still of great value.”
This year’s event was proudly sponsored by Absa Bank, Xiaomi, Shop Zetu, Safari Beauty Spa, Little Cab, Domino’s Pizza, Cold Stone Creamery, Denri, AAR Healthcare and Mövenpick Hotel.
