Many Kenyans don’t really get or understand what vines are, they simply don’t have a vivid understanding. Vines simply means a small video of 10 seconds to4 minutes with some humorous content. The most popular vines in Kenya consist of people trying to be funny, like making fun of a certain people, making fun out of daily situations in life and what happened back then or replicating another vine in a funnier way…more of parody vines.
Being a viner pays as some famous Kenyan viners have landed corporate deals with many organizations countrywide.
