Ghafla! is a Kenyan entertainment news website.[1]

History[edit] was founded in 2009 by Samuel Majani also known as Baba Ghafla[citation needed] In early 2011, it was realised that KenyanLyrics was too niche and not scalable. To help tackle these problems, a decision was made to transform KenyanLyrics into a bigger website named Ghafla! The venture was initially bootstrapped, then it was eventually funded by the 88 mph[2] seed fund, at a €100,000 valuation.[3]
