Let’s talk KFCB

Good morning 🤗.

I hope you have been well

Welcome back to my blog ✨

Have you heard about the film called “Rafiki “?

Well Rafiki is a Kenyan film that happened to be featured at the Cannes Film Festival.

Rafiki means friend , that’s clear to most of you. However this film apparently, is themed around homosexuality and thus was banned in Kenya.

(I’d like to know how you feel about this. Should it have been banned? )

KFCB (Kenya Film Classification Board) also introduced something else. This was making rounds on social media around last week but one if I’m not wrong .

It’s about acquisition of licenses for content creators more-so those who reach their audience through film.

A good example being those who use YouTube.

Getting the license entails paying an annual fee of 12,000 Kenyan shillings.

It doesn’t end there.

There are additional charges per week and per video .

For every week you upload a video you ought to pay 5,000 shillings. That’s a weekly fee. The for each video in a week you pay 2,000.

(I’m not that good at maths but this is simple)

In a week for two videos one pays 7,000 shillings.

If they are consistent this adds up to 28,000 per month .

Which brings me to the question …

Is KFCB overstepping?

I’d like to know what you think about this in the comments.

Have a great week guys 😁

See you on Friday

Ps: I got berets 😄😄

  1. About Rafiki I’d support any day. About the subscription it’s overstepped and they maybe creating an online content cartel.
    Has such regulations been applied anywhere else in the world?


  2. Let’s ask ourselves first if an average Kenyan youth (Who form the larger percentage of YouTubers) can get to afford that amount of money. Most YouTube enthusiasts are jobless graduates who do it as a hobby with a hope that their audience can expand with time and provide them with self employment just like their American counterparts. KFCB is just but blowing off the candles of zealous youths who want to lead an honest life.
