The premiere episode of BYOB TV Show was about Business Vision. The contestants were assigned Femi One and Timmy T Dat, two of the top artists from the Kaka Empire music stable owned by BLAZE mentor and BYOB TV Show Judge, King Kaka.

The contestants had to take the artists’ image and execute a plan that would uplift their unique brands. Watch how it went down here.

The contestants were split into two teams, A-team with Keith Asumba as their team leader and Hype Masters- Safe Joe as the team leader. The Hype Masters won the challenge, by a score of 23 points out of a possible 30. Consequently, Keith had to nominate 2 of his team members to go up for eviction alongside him.

At the end of the show, Keith Asumba was evicted. But, he didn’t walk away empty handed; he took home Ksh. 100,000.

Despite the challenges that come with being a part of Kenya’s entertainment industry, or any other industry for that matter, having a vision to guide you is vital.

Here are 8 tips from King Kaka, to consider when defining the vision, mission and goals for your business:

  1. Have a clear vision.
  2. Have mentors who understand your business, for support and advice.
  3. Have a solid team that believes in your vision.
  4. Understand your customers and your market.
  5. Have monthly, quarterly, half year and annual goals.
  6. Believe in your brand.
  7. Do reviews to see where mistakes were made and what can be done to make it better.
  8. Have a plan.
