The move underscores the media personality’s influence and commitment to shaping the narrative of Africa through innovative and transformative media practices.

Legally Clueless Africa, a Podcast by Adelle Onyango, has gained prominence for its commitment to giving Africans agency over their stories and addressing issues that resonate with diverse communities.

Onyango’s appointment to the BML board aligns with her vision of driving positive change in the media environment across the continent.

Speaking on her recent appointment, Adelle Onyango expressed both honor and responsibility, stating:

I am determined to work hard while serving on this board.”

Maurice Otieno, Executive Director at Baraza Media Lab, commended Onyango’s appointment, saying, “When you observe Adelle Onyango’s work, you witness an authentic media personality, an uber-intentional creative, and a uniquely influential voice in the modern space.”

Otieno highlighted Onyango’s dedication to Afrocentrism, shaping the African narrative for a global audience while representing diverse, often marginalized voices.

“Adelle Onyango embodies Baraza Media Lab’s vision, core values, and strategic goals in the media and creative ecosystem. We are incredibly proud to be associated with her,” he added.
