Andrew Kibe, a Kenyan content creator, has been making millions of dollars from YouTube, and according to him, it’s all about timing. When he left Kenya for the USA, he was broke, but he took a risk and started a podcast. He chose a unique niche, one that many content creators avoid – criticizing celebrities. With his don’t-care attitude, he began to gain fame, especially after attacking Mungai Eve and her boyfriend.
Kibe’s YouTube channel, which had about 100,000 subscribers with a few views, began to soar. In Kenya, he became a trending topic, with many people finding his content meaningful and others hating on it. A year later, Kibe has over 400,000 subscribers on YouTube, and he’s making a crazy amount of money from the platform every month.
According to Social Blade, a website that analyzes the earnings of YouTube channels, Kibe’s estimated earnings range from Ksh. 500,000 to Ksh. 7 million per month. It’s important to note that Kibe is based in the USA, where the CPM and CPC are much higher than in Kenya, so it’s true that he’s earning a huge amount of money. Kibe uploads up to five videos a day, and most of them receive over 60,000 views in a day.
Kibe’s YouTube earnings have allowed him to purchase a Mercedes Benz S Class worth Ksh. 12 million. His lifestyle is changing, and with his growing audience, he’ll soon be a multimillionaire.
