Mulima Benjamin aka Mulis is an events host and digital marketer. MCI Radio had a conversation with him at The Media Challenge hub.
What online communities do you manage in your work?
Ummmh I think with age I work with youth, the younger youth who are 17 to 26.
When would you decline a paid sponsorship?
It would depend on the product they are telling me to advertise because am basically events so if it’s something far fetched I wouldn’t advertise it at all because I would be mixing up stuff.
What are your interests outside of work?
Well, I like researching a lot of weird and funny stuff (laughs) for example I was searching on YouTube for how the world would be if there was no oxygen for 5 seconds ( laughs)
What are your primary responsibilities as an events host?
The first responsibility is to make sure people come for the event so you influence them to come. You have to make sure people buy things from the event because that’s where the pay comes from.
5 years down the road, where do you see yourself as a brand?
I plan on having my own digital marketing company or an influencing organization and hiring people to create opportunities for them.
