ShowMax is turning entertainment upside down in Kenya

What would you do with 330 bob? Get a burger perhaps and soda? Or better still a beer in your favourite local after a long day at work? Probably you should buy an “I’m sorry” card and take it to your girlfriend considering what you did over the weekend.
