Media Persona Adelle Onyango features in ‘Most Influential’ list under 40

Kenyan media personality Adelle Onyango was announced as one of the 100 icons on the MIPAD under 40 list, this week.

She was featured under the media and culture category. The recognition was in light of her work in both traditional media and her recent trailblazing in the podcasting world.

Speaking on the recognition in the list, Adelle said: “This is such an honor. To be recognized in such a global space and be amongst people who inspire me on this list, is truly such an honor. I’m proud of myself, the work I’ve done in radio and now in podcasting. I’m also very excited about how podcasting is giving Kenyans and really Africans, agency over their voices, their stories and their truths which we know have been misrepresented for years”

MIPAD which stands for: “the Most Influential People of African Descent”, identifies high achievers of African descent in public and private sectors from all around the world as a progressive network of relevant actors to join together in the spirit of recognition, justice, and development of Africa, its people on the continent and across its diaspora.

Others recognized on the list are Burna Boy, Yvonne Orji, Zozi Tunzi (Miss Universe), and more.
