DJ Pierra recently landed a new job hosting a new TV show, Y254, under SIGNET 824. The popular DJ, who has hosted other shows in the past and been part of numerous other productions, will be hosting the morning show alongside rapper Barry Mo(of music group The Posse) and Fridah Zakayo.
Y254 is a new channel, which is an initiative of the Ministry of Information & Technology to give the youth a chance to express themselves and participate in their governance and community building. Y254 simply means Kenyan Youth. That is Y for Youth & 254 which is the Kenyan code.
The show seeks to transform the lives of the youth in Kenya by providing essential information and education through creative and attractive content packaged to resonate with the aspirations of young people. It is meant to be an indispensable resource that the youth can trust to meet their media needs, hence a platform for the Kenyan youth to express themselves.
The Morning show, #yInTheMorning runs from 7 to 10 am and there’s also an evening show, #Thebounce that runs from 4 to 6 pm, aired every weekday.
