The 23-year-old Kennar, an Actuarial Science student at the Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), added that he holds a desire for the content he creates to one day be feted at the high-profile awards show.
“Kennar must win an Oscars award, then I think we need to impact people not only content creators and actors. The aim is to have all youth get to the next level,” Kennar stated.
Kennar also attributed his success in content creation to his former high school where he acquired the discipline that taught him survival.
“Ringa Boys made Kennar who he is, it taught me how to survive. I had my grammar teacher who would smack me for sleeping in class yet we stayed with him till late the previous night,” Kennar said in the interview.
Asked whether what he is studying in school is relevant to his craft, Kennar argued that studies are important in other affairs and not directly in the business of content creation.
“Education besides what you study gives you other skills such social skills how to relate with people, how to manage finances and even how to handle issues amongst ourselves,” he remarked.
