3. Great Wall Television

Most Kenyans in their 30s will definitely relate to these black and white televisions. Your house was without a doubt the coolest hangout joint if your parent possessed one of these.

4. Radios and tape cassettes

Tape cassettes cannot escape the minds of several Kenyans owing to the hard times they gave us while rewinding them to start playing the top song.

It was also a tricky affair to work with the radio and had to spend several minutes adjusting the knob before you found a proper and clean frequency.
