Before venturing into YouTube, she was doing sales. Right when she thought she would get a promotion, she was fired from the job.
This got her so stressed, and probably out of boredom, started watching YouTube videos. Seated in her room one day, she decided to take up her phone and record a video. This is how her journey on YouTube began. It was not easy at first and unlike most people who start YouTube and grow with the help of a huge social media following, she had very few followers.
Meeting Wode Maya
As her channel grew, she met popular Ghanaian YouTuber and her current boyfriend Wode Maya. He helped her see content in a different way and encouraged her to put up content every single day if she really wanted to take YouTube seriously. She took the advice and put in a lot of work and it finally paid off.
Her content centres on family, travel and interviewing famous celebrities and entrepreneurs in Kenya. She has traveled to a number of African countries including Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Senegal, Eswatini, Cameroon and South Africa to showcase Africa in a positive way and bringing inspiring content from across Africa. This also includes showcasing different parts of Kenya from the Maasai Mara, Turkana, Kisumu, Nakuru, Nairobi to the coastal region of Kenya.
Popular celebrities and YouTubers who have featured in her channel either for interviews or just for content creation include: Eve Mungai, Wabosha Maxine, Joana Kinuthia, Jalang’o, Alex Mwakideu, Hon. Raila Odinga, Bonfire Adventures co-founder Sara Kabu, Ivy Melania, Dee Mwango, I am Marwa, Betty Kyallo and Vera Sidika.
Miss Trudy was featured in Mr. Seed’s song Ghetto Love as a video vixen. She has also made appearances on several platforms for interviews including on Switch TV and Jalang’o TV.
