The eccentric host of one of the top TV talk show, The Trend, is also quite popular on the Twitter streets. He’s loved and loathed in equal measure. Hopefully, Nairobi Gossip led by DJ RcNaby Keytoe will sneak into his show, some day!

3. Julie Gichuru (@JulieGichuru)- 513k.

Sunday Night Live on Citizen TV and African Leadership Dialogue (ALD).She is known for her empathetic interviewing skills. Remember the ululation during the GES 2015 summit at Gigiri as Presidents Uhuru Kenyatta and Barack Obama strode onto the stage? Yes! Julie’s African welcome antics only proved that she can be quite an attraction off the TV screen

4. Lupita Nyong’o (@LupitaNyongo)- 395k
The Oscar winner is followed by 395k fans on Twitter and counting. Lupita’s rise to stardom has been steady since the days she would hustle for a role in stage plays at the then dilapidated Kenyan National Theatre.

5. Carol Radull (@CarolRadull)- 237k
She hosts a sports show on Kiss and Classic FMs on weekends and apart from the radio, she has hosted various football shows on pan-African TV channel SuperSport. Witty and full of life, she knows her sports very well.

When you give a performance and you are joined on the stage by two presidents, one of them the
leader of the most powerful nation on earth, then you must be quite popular too online.

8. Shaffie Weru (@ShaffieWeru)-163k
Shaffie Weru used to be known as the ultimate party guide in Nairobi. He would party hard, “chomaining picha” in the process. Perhaps his ignominious show at Nakuru 10 rugby tournament was the lowest he ever sunk. He was escorted out of the venue by bouncers drunk, disheveled and half-naked. Mafans still love him though! The controversial radio host has mellowed with age.

9. Juliani (@JulianiKenya)- 145k
Juliani has carved a unique niche for himself in the unforgiving Kenyan music industry. He has stealthily moved from the gospel music artists bandwagon to producing quality social justice music. The move paid off as he has cut lucrative deals with various corporates and NGOs. The deals too seem to have come with a sizeable Twitter following.

10. Mwalimu Churchill (@MwalimChurchill) –114k
The king of comedy makes people laugh on TV and online too. Mwalimu Churchill (Daniel Ndambuki) has quite a huge following online because of his witty and funny jokes in his weekly Churchill Show comedy show on NTV. Did we leave anyone out?
