Born in 1942, Samuel Kamau Macharia is the Kenyan founder and chair of Royal Media Services the largest private radio and TV network in Eastern Africa. He has before been in the Forbes magazine of African millionaires to watch and wax honored with the 2015 Eastern Africa Ernst and young entrepreneur lifetime achievement award.
According to international research firm IPSOS , Royal Media Services radio stations have a combined audience of 80% of Kenya's population. Brands in RMS include - Citizen TV, citizen radio, Inooro TV , Ramogi FM , Inooro FM, Musyi FM, Chamgei FM, Muuga FM , Egesa FM, Bahati FM , Mulembe FM , Wimworo FM ,Sulwe FM , Hot 96 , Vuuka FM and lately viusasa.
He may be a media mogul but he is said to be involved in agriculture, transport, real estate and banking among other investments. Enjoying 7 million + TV viewers daily, 10m + daily radio listeners, 52m social media reach per month, 30M + digital platform monthly page views it's probably one of the most successful media house locally which then raises the question how much does SK Macharia make from this venture with recent innovations like Viusasa widening their base even further?
His net worth is estimated to be ksh. 40 billion. This really is a crazy amount but no surprise considering the success rate of his business venture.
