NAIROBI, KENYA - Chams Media is delighted to renew its partnership with Nation Media Group that will see the ‘Daring Abroad’ show air on NTV Kenya for another year. 

The partnership was first penned at the most unlikely period in the wake of the Covid19 pandemic in 2020.  

The backbone of this relationship is the popular and unmatched Daring Abroad series that features Kenyans who have ventured abroad and other nationalities. The show has grown in leaps and bounds both on TV and online. We have a captive audience across the world. An audience that wants inspiration, information and entertainment away from the normal content. 

The show is not just about what Kenyans are doing abroad or Majuu as some would say. It has evolved to showcase linkages between abroad and home. We have showcased captivating stories about skills and knowledge transfer as well as investment opportunities abroad and back home.

According to the Central Bank of Kenya, Kenyans living abroad sent home about a 300billion Kenya shillings in the year 2020 despite the covid19 pandemic. That sends a strong message that indeed the diaspora means a lot to Kenya. That cash goes a long way in transforming livelihoods back home. In this partnership, we have also collaborated very well in news content sharing which the NTV Kenya editorial can attest to.  

This partnership has taught us that content is king. It has also taught us that content is business. We have also learnt that there is a growing audience that wants inspiration. Through Daring Abroad, we have taken our views around the world from the comfort of their living rooms or at the click of a button. From London to Goma City in DRC, Accra to Dubai, Arusha to Seychelles to name a few. 

As we enter the second phase of the series, covering another one year journey, we promise to make the show even more entertaining, informative and inspiring. We are rebranding our local segment in the show to BACK HOME – A segment that seeks to reconnect Kenyans living abroad with their motherland.


Your Excellency Josphat Koli Nanok, Governor of Turkana, David Juma, Deputy County Commissioner Turkana, James Ikienyi MCA Kanamkemer Ward, Rev Simon Loote, all protocols observed.

Today is a historic day in our journey to position ourselves right in the heart of the cradle of mankind as we launch our first ever regional office away from Nairobi.

It gives me great pleasure to invite you all to this launch that sends a signal that Turkana county and the entire region are ripe for investment. Your presence is a clear statement of your confidence in Chams Media work.

We are not new in Turkana, for we have produced and aired several eye-catching, inspiration, informative and engaging features about the county, away from the normal news narrative that tends to concentrate on problems. For us, opening this office is a step further in our vision to position ourselves in this region that has many positive untold stories. We will traverse the entire North Rift region whose population is about 10 million. The region is goldmine of interesting stories in various sectors including trade, tourism, environment, agriculture, culture, sports and peace building.

Our aim is turn our lenses on the entire eight counties of the region, namely, Turkana, Samburu, West Pokot, Elgeyo Marakwet, Uasin Gishu, Nandi and Baringo.

Devolution has brought visible social economic transformation in the so called marginalized areas of Kenya. Why not devolve content creation too?

You can find our content on our digital platforms including Chams Media TV YouTube channel. We produce documentaries, features, infomercials and commercials.

We are ready to partner with government entities, NGOs, religious organizations, media organizations and the private sector at large to produce and distribute content that transforms lives.

We have the state of the art technology and a competent team in Lodwar which will be supported by the team at our headquarters in Nairobi.

We also aim to contribute to promotion of talent in the region. Indeed it is already happening. We have nurtured local talent in various fields from videography to research, scripting and reporting.

Let’s grow together!

Thank you!

The series will also highlight the role of Co-operative Bank of Kenya in cooperative movement.

According to the National Transport and Safety Authority, NTSA, there were over 700 registered Matatu Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies as of Mid-March 2021.

Statistics from Matatu Owners Association indicate that matatus in Kenya move about seven million passengers daily, and has a turnover of about 300 billion shillings per annum.

Here’s the link to episode one;


Ladies and gentlemen, I am happy today as we start a new journey with the Nation Media Group.

Let begin by saying our goal at CHAMS Media to produce informative and inspiring content that transforms lives. We think we live we dream happy stories or call them feel-good stories. We produce unmatched documentaries and features. Daring Abroad is one such product. It focuses on people who have ventured beyond the borders of their home countries in various fields including entrepreneurship, leadership, education, sports, and culture. Simply, people, it is about those who have dared live, work, or do business abroad and how that has impacted on their lives. We live in a global village.

Daring Abroad has captured the imagination of audiences not only in Kenya but across the world. It has become a club where people source inspiration, business ideas, networks, exposure, and knowledge. The experience of a Nigerian teacher in Seychelles may not be the same as that of a Kenyan teacher’s experience in London but when those experiences are shared whether positive or negative, they not only enrich the profession but also showcase our unlimited boundaries and potentials.

Daring Abroad has been along for five years. It is now re-loaded with two fresh segments. There is Kenya to The World that traces the value chain in Kenya’s products making it to the global market and My Magical Kenya in which the presenter, yours truly will be sharing his experiential journeys in Kenya.

Our goal blends well with Nation Media Group’s aspiration which is to empower by informing, educating, and engaging our diverse audience

On behalf of the CHAMS Media, I humbly and sincerely thank the Nation TV for giving us the opportunity to partner with them as the broadcaster of Daring Abroad. NTV like other Nation Media Group platforms is a strong brand in current affairs in Kenya and the region.

We look forward to a fruitful relationship. The journey towards this relationship ironically began at the most unexpected time. While everything looked gloomy and vague, due to the Corona Virus crisis in March 2020, talks for this partnership began with both parties seeing the potential of this program with COVID or not. Those talks have yielded what we are doing today. Putting pen to paper. And the icing on the cake is the MOU we are signing alongside the Daring Abroad agreement, to share news content.

The plane has taken off

Thank you very much!


When the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country in March 2020, many companies closed thus rendering many Kenyans jobless. Other small businesses also had difficulties staying afloat with measures such as lockdown and dusk to dawn curfew put in place.

Therefore, to cushion the most vulnerable members of the community, the Kenya government put in place social protection measures such as the cash transfer program through which beneficiaries earn Ksh. 1000 per week.

Kazi Mtaani was another program that was introduced as a source of livelihood to the Kenyan youth who were hard hit by the effects of the pandemic. In our latest documentary #LesseningTheBurden, we spoke to stakeholders and beneficiaries to understand the trickle-down effect (if at all) of the two programs.
