26-year-old potato farmer Brian Rono is the new winner of the Blaze Be Your Own Boss (BYOB) TV show that came to an end on Sunday, April 15.

Rono walked away with the grand prize of Ksh5 million, 3 million in cash and 2 million in business support from Safaricom, after beating 11 contestants.

BYOB is a live TV show initiated by Safaricom that trains young entrepreneurs through a series of mentor-led challenges that test talent, skill and character. The finalists get an opportunity to pitch their business ideas to the judges in a live TV show and compete for a prize bundle – funding and mentorship – to help them to kick-start and launch their business.

Elated about his fete, Rono said, “I am beyond overwhelmed right now. I came in with nothing but a desire to show my grit and win this money because I know what I’m capable of achieving. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to interact with strong, ambitious, young people; to learn from them and grow with them. Being chosen out of a group of 12 strong contestants is a very humbling experience,

Auditions for new contestants opened immediately after the second season ended, and the show will be back in September according to information on the Blaze website.
