The Be Your Own Boss reality TV show came to an end last night when the winner was crowned. The TV show which is under the sponsorship of telecommunication giant Safaricom came to an end last night when the final Boss was picked.
The TV show had been airing on KTN at 8:30pm every Monday but the finale was aired yesterday might with the winner walking away with a cool 5 million Kenyan shillings. The reality show was an idea to improve the youth’s mentality in starting their own ventures instead of waiting for employment. Valentine Nekesa emerged Boss yesterday and was awarded the prize of 5 million shillings, 3 million going into her business while 2 million will be given to her.
There was also a prize for the fans favorite contestant who had earlier been evicted and votes came in plenty for Sue Mueni who walked home with 500,000 Kenyan shillings from Blaze.
Valentine Nekesa and David Kimani were the two contestants that made it to the final with Nekesa emerging boss.
There were reactions from Kenyans as usual when the final winner was announced and using the tag #BYOBSundayFinale on twitter most aired their views. Some were disappointed while others celebrating but it has been a great show and as it came to a close last night I bet youths in Kenya have gained so much in terms of business ideas. We have also enjoyed the Blaze Tariff from Safaricom that came with cheaper bundles, we hope it will not be cut off soon!
