Michezoafrika named the best in Kenyan sport at BAKE Awards

Michezoafrika.com has won the Best Sports Blog category at the 2015 edition of the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) Awards. The colorful award ceremony was held on Saturday night at the Intercontinental Hotel in Nairobi where the best blogs in Kenya were feted for their contribution to the development of quality online content.

Michezoafrika.com which gives a comprehensive 360 degree feel of all sports beat other nominees in the category including football websites futaa.com and superfoota.co.ke as well as rugby websites ragahouse.com and osbke.com.

Speaking while receiving the trophy, michezoafrika producer Dennis Machio thanked everyone who took their time to vote while also appreciating the efforts by BAKE to make the process credible and reliable, “First of all on behalf of the michezoafrika crew, I want to thank God because it our tradition as michezoafrika.com to always appreciate God’s favors in everything that we do because without him we will be nowhere.” He proclaimed.

“Secondly we dedicate our win today to our fans and supporters who have always urged us on because we would have been discouraged long time ago if there was no recognition, appreciation and support from those who read our work.”

“I also make special mention that the michezoafrika crew is one extra ordinary team that works round the clock to give sports lovers 360 degree feel of different sports events especially happening locally and in the region. It is important to mention that  all our crew team members sacrifice a lot of their comfort to just  make sure readers are informed on what is happening around the world anytime of the day and night” He added.

He continued to say that the win especially from a credible voting process has recharged the crew’s energy promising a better experience for readers in the coming months, “We will not take this humbling honor for granted. We will keep working hard in ensuring we give our readers, fans and followers a better experience in everything that we do.” He concluded.
