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.

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.

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.

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

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

YouTube Unveils First ‘Black Voices’ Class of Creator, Music Artist Partners

YouTube announced the inaugural 2021 class of partners for its #YouTubeBlack Voices program a group of 132 creators and artists from around the world who will receive funding and support from the video giant.

Last summer, amid racial-justice protests across the U.S. and in other countries, YouTube announced a $100 million fund dedicated to Black creators as part of a multiyear initiative. The 132 artists and creators picked for the first round of grants, announced Tuesday, will get dedicated partner support from YouTube and seed funding for the development of their channels. YouTube also will host training sessions, workshops, and networking programs.

“In the aftermath of the tragic and shameful killing of George Floyd in June, we wanted to dial-up and show our commitment to this community in a new way,” said Malik Ducard, YouTube’s VP of responsibility, in a call with reporters.

In 2016, the video platform hosted the first YouTube Black Summit in L.A. with a range of influential creators. “That was, for me, my most inspirational, potent moment at YouTube,” Ducard said. YouTube has supported Black creators in the years since, but after the events of 2020, he said, “We wanted to do more.”

The 2021 #YouTubeBlack Voices creators come from seven countries the U.S., the U.K., Brazil, Australia, South Africa, Kenya, and Nigeria, and include musicians, beauty entrepreneurs, comedians, activists, poets, personal trainers, teachers, parents, and photographers. Profiles of some of the creators in the program can be found at this link.

Ducard declined to say how much YouTube is investing in the 2021 class of creators. But, he said, “These are meaningful partnerships and investments for these creators.” There are no strings attached to funding, he added: “The creators can invest in their content and themselves as they see fit.”

For the first wave of selections, YouTube invited creators who had previously participated in YouTube Black events and programs to apply and evaluated applications across a number of factors such as channel performance and engagement metrics. All candidates were reviewed by a global panel of YouTube staffers with knowledge of and/or experience with Black music and culture, according to YouTube. Ideal candidates were interested in establishing a long-term channel strategy and releasing original content between Q4 2020 and Q2 2021.

Ducard said YouTube will open up the #YouTubeBlack Voice program to an open application process for the next round of grants. YouTube’s goal is to have more than 500 creators funded through the program over the next three years.

Of the 132 YouTubers, 21 are music artists. Lyor Cohen, global head of YouTube Music, told reporters the goal is to provide long-term career development to up-and-coming artists.

“It’s hard to understate the impact Black music culture has made not just in America but around the world,” he said. “This is not just us doing for them. They do for us because they make our products better.”

Added Ducard, “Our hope is these artists will become the biggest and most influential Black voices on our platform.”
