2017 is a few weeks in already and we know we kinda late with this 2017 wrap up.
Time for us to look back and give you a list of what we believe are some of the records that made an impact in Kenya in 2017. Whether you agree, disagree or have your own suggestions, we’d love to hear from you.

Big shout out Dj Dan Mixa for some all the back and forth on making the list.
