Who is Mungai Eve

Mungai Eve is one of Kenya’s YouTube content creators who are using the platform to make money online. She recently revealed made claims that she makes more than Ksh 1,500,000 monthly from her channel.

Content creation is reaping benefits for several young people in Kenya and around the world. How did she do it?

This article looks into Eve Mungai’s net worth, biography, age and place of birth, personal life, and career journey.

Background
She was born Evelyn Wanjiku Mungai in Gachiku village, Murang’a county on 6th April 2000. Her life growing up was pretty much smooth until she was in Grade five when her mother suddenly became very sick.
She required two surgeries and a lot of money went into paying the hospital bills. Today, she is doing well and she says both her parents are very supportive.

Education
After successfully completing primary school, she proceeded to a local high school. However, due to problems with school fees, she had to change schools severally. While she did not love the school that much, she was always a leader and loved poetry and talking in front of an audience.
Her father really wanted her to be a teacher but this was not something she saw herself doing.

One of her teachers noticed her public speaking skills and thought she’d make a very good journalist. Upon completing high school, she enrolled in a journalism course but dropped out after one semester. She has plans to go back to school in the future.

Career
After quitting college, she needed to find a job to sustain herself. She opened her YouTube channel on 21st January 2020 and posted her first video on 31st October 2020. This was a video of her covering the Machakos Gengeton Festival and later did videos where she randomly asked people their opinions on trending topics.

In December 2020, she would meet with three struggling musicians named Madocho, Stupid Boy, and Liyetin.

She ended up covering their story and was responsible for getting people to notice the trio. The publicity helped them get Vagah of Afro royalties to sponsor their music.

Little by little, the celebrity continued growing and has progressed to doing a number of interviews on her channel. She has featured A-list celebrities on her channel and upcoming ones like Ndovu kuu and Mejja. She is also the one who introduced Manzi wa Kibera to the Kenyan audience.

It has been less than a year since she started posting videos on her channel and the growth has been rapid. At times, she posts up to four videos per day, proving that persistence and hard work indeed pay. She currently has more than 394k subscribers and 1000 videos, with over 56 million views.

Interestingly, she uses her phone to shoot the videos. Initially, she used a Nikon camera but the risks of using it in the ghettos were risky. Eve is famed for her simple camera, she recently upgraded her Youtuber gears to modern professional cameras, lapel microphone, and boom mics

Boyfriend
Mungai is in a relationship with her director Trevor who is also her photographer. The two have been together for the past three years. It was Trevor who inspired her to start her YouTube channel and he is in charge of marketing at Eve Mungai media.

Trevor’s wealth of experience has proved useful in the fast rise of Mungai’s career. Speaking to Afrikan Traveller, Eve’s boyfriend narrated how he created content for a person he worked for and took his YouTube video from zero to over 20,000 subscribers without pay for two years. His efforts paid off and he was put on a salary after his employer secured

The series features social influencers and cousins Natalie Halcro and Olivia Pierson, along with their close-knit families, as they juggle their lives between the beauty and fame of Los Angeles and their humble and hilarious roots in Vancouver.

 

Having established themselves as beauty and fashion influencers over the last few years, Natalie and Olivia have grown considerable social media followings, but they know that in order to make it in Los Angeles they need to do more than take a good selfie.

We wanted to create a line for women to feel confident, fearless and powerful. When developing these styles it was important for us to select elegant textures and colors to accentuate the curves of each and every figure.

We are so excited to share these pieces with you and truly hope they bring you as much joy as they have brought us. We can’t wait for you to share your photos with us!

After gaining business experience through various brand partnerships, Nat and Liv look to their brothers, Joel and Owen, to help build their brand as they work toward curating their first fashion line. The girls take time from their busy schedules to go back to Vancouver, showing a portion of their lives that can’t be found on any social platform.

Their loud and lively moms, Rhonda and Julia, are sisters and the glue that holds this eccentric group together through vacations and weekly Sunday night dinners.

Natalie is also close with her sister Stephanie, the eldest cousin, who is a free-spirited, eclectic personality and sometimes struggles to find her place in the group, often identifying herself as the “black sheep.” From quirky parents to competitive siblings, this crew takes on all of life’s adventures together and proves that no amount of fame can rival a family’s bond.

Relatively Nat & Liv is produced by Machete Productions and Cineflix.
