Kilimall Turns To Local Brands To Expand Market

Online shopping mall Kilimall projects to grow its business three times over the next two years, riding on the rising wave of e-commerce in Kenya.

According to its two-year strategic plan, the company seeks to double it’s market this year and triple it by end of 2018.

Kilimall Managing Director Victor Ma said that business had grown by over 300 percent in the last two years, with customers crossing the one million mark by close of December 2016.

Releasing its second phase growth plan today, Mr Ma said growth
will be accelerated by bringing on board local brands and expanding markets outside Nairobi.

He said Bata Shoe Company is already selling its footwear products on Kilimall,being the first local brand to sign up, as well as Ramtons, a popular household electronics brand in Kenya.

He said Kilimall, which has expanded to Uganda and Nigeria, plans to bring on board other popular brands locally such as LG, Samsung and Hotpoint.

“We want to have a balance between local and foreign brands in our second phase of growth,” said Mr Ma. “There is a significant section of Kenyan shoppers who want to buy local brands online.”

He said Kilimall had expanded its market outside Nairobi from 10 percent to 25 percent and expects to grow it further as internet penetration deepens in rural towns.

Mr Ma said Kilimall is working with international manufacturers to tailor-make products such as phones and fashion wear to Kenyan tastes.

Kilimall Marketing Manage Gladys Liu said trust in online transactions is still low, which has forced many online retailers to use the pay-on- delivery service.

She noted, however, that from a trust rate of 10 percent two years ago, 40 percent of Kenyans now have confidence transacting online. 

Wizkid’s Team Speaks Out About The Singer’s Arrest Warrant and Legal Woes

Wizkid was expected to appear in court after Ugandan event organizers filed a lawsuit against him claiming that he “received money under false pretense, cheating and conspiracy to defraud.”

See what happened was that Wizkid had been scheduled to perform in the East African country this December (3rd), an event that was canceled on grounds of ‘unavoidable circumstances although the event organizers report not being informed of the Naija star’s cancellation until the last minute.

They thereafter incurred really great costs something that lead them to take up the issue with the law.

So far, Wizkid’s manager Sunday Are has come out about the while situation, reassuring fans that the star is doing fine and that they are currently in settlement negotiations.

Troubles or no troubles, 2016 has undoubtedly been a great year for this ‘Ojuolegba’ singer. 

UG Rapper Keko Opens Up About Her Largely Talked About Sony Deal

For the few weeks that have passed, Sony Music have had their eyes on African artists signing Nigeria’s Davido and Tanzania’s ‘Ali Kiba’ but we have yet to forget about the stars who’d already been on the label some of whom were allegedly not too happy about the terms of their engagement.

One of these artists was ‘Full Circle’ female emcee Keko whose silence brought about speculations as to whether or not she was still signed to the label, rumors which she put to rest via her recent radio interview.

After talking about her self-titled foundation whose mantra is ‘Live Sober, Soar High’, she went on to reveal that she is still singed to the International record label and that the job of the record label is to promote and sell her music, hers is to make the music, something she went on to promise she is still doing.

The interview was an exclusive from Mwanza’s Jembe FM and was hosted by radio personality Miss Natty E.
