Welcome to Mania Inc., where we're rewriting the media playbook. Our unapologetically bold publication isn't confined by niche labels. It’s built for those who crave a fresh perspective and a break from mainstream media noise.

How to Contact Us

You can reach us via our email: mail(@)maniainc.com or via phone on +254731048779. You can also find more contact details on our Linktree.

Our Aim

Our aim is to help you digest what’s happening in the world, be it in sports, tech, lifestyle, self-empowerment, etc., by looking at the world from a humanistic, and non-journalistic perspective.

Our aim is not to bring you everything, it’s to bring you what we think is important to a Millenial/Gen Z but also do it in a digestible way, while ensuring we provide valuable, concise, and relatable information.

What are we trying to achieve?

Why we started

Mania Inc. started after we felt that legacy media did a terrible job of overcooking news, features, reviews, and tech stories, among other things.

We, therefore, felt a need to try and do better and bring you content that isn’t dependent on budgets, boards, or even traditional media structures to get you the information you need. Unlike legacy media, our aim is not to bombard you with stories or news.

We take a different approach and bring you wide-ranging stories and articles at a steady and digestible pace.

We are very keen on the quality of our publication and will always choose what we feel is interesting to us, as millennials and Gen Zs ourselves, over what will sell or what will trend.

Our commitment to you

Our commitment is to you, our reader. Only you. We also believe in choice and, therefore, won’t lock ourselves to a niche for the purpose of pleasing search engines and the like.

Most often, legacy publications cave in due to editorial pressures, competition, and other market forces, often leading to a barrage of over-indulgent news stories, and articles.

Our approach is different and instead of worrying about what a story will mean for revenue, we’ll stick to writing about what we want to, when we want to.
