What is Baze?
Baze is Safaricom’s subscription based video-on-demand service that would allow users to access a wide variety of local and regional short form videos in entertainment, music, news and sports.
The service itself launched this year by Safaricom is still on trial mode, the move comes after Safaricom attempts to consolidate its tech influence in East Africa.
Safaricom’s Baze will also help local content creators access a platform where they can showcase their creativity by publishing their original content and earn money out of them.
