Related Posts Wants to be Kenya’s 9Gag & Locally Relevant, has launched in Kenya to give users doses of hilarity everyday shared on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram among others and just about everything trending in the country.

According to  Njuru Mwangi the founder, “ Ikonini was founded on the idea that I did love to laugh away every evening or morning when I got to my desk. I had to scramble to people’s Twitter timelines and find all the images that have been trending. I did not want to miss any. Then I would go to facebook look for the funny images and like them through then from there I would finally go to instagram and double tap on all the funny photos and videos.”

Njuru says that staying on Twitter looking for hilarious updates quickly became hectic as it entailed so much to do just to find his daily dose of laughter and he decided to launch Ikonini to let people share their daily dose of humor online easily.

There will be a giveaway every month for the “Post of the month” which gets most views on our site. More details to be announced later on,” Njuru told TechMoran.
