Having joined the YouTube bandwagon roughly 5 years ago it’s always been evident that it’s probably the greatest anthropological project ever launched. It has managed to expose the multitudes of the human condition more than any other medium ever created, and allowed people to express themselves in more diverse ways than at any point in history.
For the longest time most of the content that one could enjoy on YouTube has been coming from abroad. With the likes of Jenna Marbles, Copa90 and Michelle Phan churning out amazing content on YouTube, it was just a matter of time before YouTube blew up over here and we start to see amazing content from Kenya.
This week, in one of my many YouTube channel discovery sessions, I stumbled upon a fairly new channel from the 254. Having spotted one of my long time crush I decided to check it out and I was not disappointed at all.
The YouTube channel EastMeetsWest254 has now been around for one month now and with 6 videos out right now, so far so good.
The channel is a brainchild of their director Bobby who brought the rest of the crew together to work together and actualize it. The cast is usually made up of 6- 10 members who keep rotating from video to video. This helps them maintain a fresh image and outlook with every video and fortunately for them the chemistry is always on point.
The cast members come from different backgrounds in life but ended up at Riara University where this all started. This totally explained the name “East meets West’.
Although the topics they have covered so far are pretty much the same generic topics every YouTuber tends to do at some point, they have managed to bring in something different into the whole equation.

They have also done one music video reactions which did not do it for me. I feel that if they focus on the talks the channel has a long future ahead of it.
The videos are unscripted, explained their director, and this makes them maintain the authenticity we all look out for in a YouTube channel.
This is a definite must watch for y’all guys and I am certain that this channel will be around for a long time.
