Kenya is blessed with numerous personalities who have made a significant impact not only in Kenya but also in the world. Some of the celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o (actor) and Kipkemboi (athlete) are a household name world over. To mention but a few. Gee covers stories of these people right from their birth to limelight and beyond.

We tell how each celebrity grew up, where they attended school, their family, their fashion sense and grooming, their travel experiences and more. If there is nothing you do not know about your favorite celebrity, then this is the place to find the needed information. We write biographies with an approach that not only informs you but also encourages you to pursue your dream, of course if you will be reading about your role model.

Just a fun? Never mind, Gee seeks to provide you with the information you need to know about your popular celebrities in Kenya and the world.

Unlike in the past where celebrities were birthed from movies, TV, or radio, you can expect anyone to shoot from a nobody to star. Thanks to the advancement in technology, and more specifically, social media platforms where anything can trend either by chance or by design. These trend has resulted in the popularity of terms such as social media influence, content creator, Youtuber, Tiktoker, etc.

Below we break down Kenyan stars into some of these categories. While some of the celebs in the list can be categorized into more than one group, we have made deliberate exclusions if a person has been listed elsewhere. Note that the list is in no particular order. Let us know of someone missing from this list by contacting us.
