Because the automotive trade grows in Kenya, we have now an increase in demand for native content material relating to vehicles usually. Be it automotive evaluations, characteristic movies, or just random stuff about vehicles in Kenya, we have now seen various content material creators rise to satisfy the wants of the folks.
Whereas the automotive evaluations trade remains to be in its infancy, dealing with challenges that the remainder of the world did years in the past, we have now noticed resilience among the many stakeholders even because the would-be founding fathers appear to have been swallowed by newcomers who’re producing content material that’s simply extra interesting.
That stated, right here’s a listing of automotive evaluations and options YouTube channels in Kenya:
Vehicles With Huge Boy Trev
This automotive present was birthed with the collaboration of Huge Boy Trev (Trevor Lamenya) and Mwirigi aka Robert Kunga. The present began on TV, KTN to be exact but in addition has an energetic YouTube channel the place all their content material is shared as effectively.
CBBTV takes the method of a extra skilled automotive present with an enormous give attention to the model new market section in Kenya. Resulting from its nature, it meant that the present solely appeals to a smaller group of individuals, locking out nearly all of consumers whose thought of a brand new automotive is one with 7 years of highway expertise.
The deserves of the present are that you simply get to expertise model new vehicles that we’d in any other case solely see by giant home windows alongside Mombasa highway. Mwirigi and Trev additionally know their stuff and their approach of working collectively delivers a present that’s fairly informative and entertaining.
Daimlar Motorsports Kenya (MK)
Whereas evidently the channel has stagnated after shedding its star presenter Edwin Gaitho to a brand new channel (extra on that later), throughout its run, it was the best-produced automotive evaluations channel in Kenya. The video high quality was like nothing we had seen earlier than, even rivaling the assumably deeper pockets of CBBTV.
Resulting from a scarcity of economic curiosity (so far as we will inform), Edwin Gaitho’s evaluations had been blatantly sincere, relating all positives and negatives. As a lot because the manufacturing high quality and supply was top-notch, MK targeted extra on efficiency automotive and the occasional luxurious vehicles – we’re guessing that’s what they’d entry to, which additionally left the hole of the extra accessible “widespread mwananchi” vehicles unfilled.
You realize this model as a result of you have got most likely visited their platform in the hunt for a automotive. Arguably Kenya’s largest automotive market, Cheki additionally runs a YouTube channel which, when they don’t seem to be selling themselves, posts content material that’s fairly informative. From fundamental automotive options to lists and mechanical data, Cheki is an effective place to take a look at occasionally.
Electrical Drive Africa
You didn’t anticipate an electrical automotive channel in Kenya now did you? Whereas there are countable electrical vehicles out there, Electrical Automobile Africa has taken their ardour for renewable power and created content material across the few eCars that we have now round. The channel has featured an eGolf in addition to a Tesla that roam the streets of Nairobi.
Nevertheless, don’t get too excited. The manufacturing and supply is sort of wanting, leaving viewers craving for extra data, as little is delivered than what’s promised within the title. Additionally, they don’t actually do evaluations, it’s extra of a showcase – which is a pattern we will see extra of. Regardless of all this, it’s actually encouraging to see a staff engaged on showcasing electrical vehicles and related applied sciences in Kenya.
Magari Automobile Evaluations
I guess you have got most likely by no means come throughout this channel. Effectively, it’s one you must take note of. The channel focuses on the native mwananchi vehicles, so the likes of the now-popular Mazda CX-5, Nissan X-TRail, and even the outdated era Rav4.
Sure, the channel is fairly younger, solely 7 months however the content material uploaded to this point appears to resonate effectively with its target market. The manufacturing high quality can be higher than what we have now seen from extra established channels, the host is aware of his stuff and presentation abilities are fairly spectacular and our hope is that the particular person behind this channel will maintain going!
Mascardi Luxurious Vehicles
Bear in mind Edwin Gaitho? Effectively, he discovered a brand new residence with Mascardi. Whereas the channel is owned and produced by automotive vendor Mascardi Luxurious Vehicles, the manufacturing high quality is actually good. The movies are professionally shot and the presenters, sure, I say presenters as a result of Ms. Nyawira is a part of the staff delivering content material on this channel, are educated and articulate.
It’s laborious to not fall in love with Mascardi’s content material till you notice that because of the nature of the channel (owned by a supplier), the movies aren’t actually evaluations however quite options of the vehicles in inventory. Both approach, you’ll get pleasure from what your eyes get to see.
MasaiGainz On Vehicles
In case you are actually into consuming automotive content material as leisure, then you’ll actually like what MaasaiGains is doing. He approaches his movies in a vlog-style method, showcasing his experiences along with his automotive(s) and experiences with vehicles he comes throughout together with a couple of evaluations right here and there.
His channel just isn’t actually the place you go to search for automotive evaluations and issues alongside these traces, like we stated, this can be a channel that you simply observe since you merely get pleasure from taking-in automotive content material – together with watching panel beating and paint drying – okay, simply kidding.
Shift Gang 254
What began as an fanatic automotive group morphed right into a evaluations channel that we will confidently say has the biggest number of evaluations on vehicles from completely different segments. From the same old efficiency vehicles to probably the most sort-after SUVs and your common vehicles on the highway, due to ShiftGang’s entry you’ll most likely discover a assessment of a automotive you might be eyeing on this channel.
Nevertheless, the channel’s largest undoing is its lower-than-average manufacturing high quality. The presenters appear to know their stuff however supply is a problem and in an age the place all the things is world, the Shift Gang staff ought to work on delivering higher high quality to their viewers.
With that stated, if there’s any automotive evaluations channel in Kenya that you simply suppose we have now missed, tell us within the feedback part down beneath.
Let’s block adverts! (Why?)
