TV47, the home of untold stories which is linked to Mount Kenya University founder Simon Gicharu has announced a mega valentine challenge to its fans at Villa Rosa Kempinski.
The station focuses on live coverage of the 47 Kenyan counties with an angle on youth-centric content. It cuts across the board and brings to you stories that have never been told before, in a unique way.
