GHAFLA NEWS OWNERS AND FOUNDERS
Ghafla News Kenya was founded by Mr. Majani and Lyosi Mwedekeli. Mr. Majani is the Head of Product Development, and Lyosi is the Head of Sales. Their story starts in 2009, when Majani was kicked out of JKUAT University after his lack of discipline and many distractions led him down a treacherous path. This was a serious blow to his self-esteem, not to mention the guilt he felt after wasting so much of his parents’ money on school fees. He said, “for me at that point in my life, it was all about making something of myself despite what had happened. The temptation to quit was very strong.” Not one to quit, Mr. Majani’s active mind gave birth to the idea of KenyanLyrics.com one month after his academic setback.
After one year of developing the website, tragedy also struck his close friend, Lyosi Mwedekeli. During the same time that Mr. Majani had been running KenyanLyrics, Lyosi had been running African Eden, a website selling East African tours to the UK. During the height of the world’s financial crisis, the UK government changed its policy on tour company fees, and slapped a 6 million shilling fee on all tour businesses. This exorbitant government policy drove African Eden out of business. For a few weeks, Lyosi did not tell Majani what had happened, but it was not long till Majani asked him about African Eden, and he was forced to confess the bad news.
As the saying goes, a friend in need is a friend indeed, and Mr. Majani immediately thought of a way to bring Lyosi into his company. They decided to embark on a ‘big project’ codenamed The Photorange, an event photography venture which would be sponsored by a big corporation. They approached Airtel, Orange, Jipange and others, who all showed fantastic initial interest, but eventually led them on a wild goose chase for 7 months straight. During that time, KenyanLyrics.com had been seriously neglected, and was headed towards the deadpool. Mr. Majani and Lyosi decided to drop ‘The Photorange’ and pursue KenyanLyrics full time. Eventually, they noticed that KenyanLyrics was a bit limited in terms of scope of content, and scalability, so they decided to pivot to a product named Ghafla!
