Before having a YouTube channel became the in thing in Kenya, Elodie Zone was among the pioneers of the YouTube scene.

She joined the video-sharing website after she became a social pariah in high school following a vicious rumour that she was a slut.

Due to this rumour, people shunned her and she started a YouTube channel because she didn’t have any friends as teenagers can be merciless creatures.


“I started my YouTube channel because I didn’t have any friends because of those rumours of people calling me a slut, and that is when my family and friends would say some hurtful things. They told me a job as a YouTuber is not a job, that I’m embarrassing myself on the internet and that I am not making it in life.” Elodie disclosed. Luckily her family saw the light once she started making name for herself on YouTube and getting some endorsements.
