Adelle also hints at hosting another Moth mainstage; she hosted a mainstage in Kigali 2 years ago
Adelle Onyango is all set to be a speaker at The Moth Gala later this year and to host her own mainstage. This won’t be the first time the podcaster has spoken on a Moth stage; last year she performed at a Moth event in New York.
What is The Moth?
In short, The Moth is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. Through this organisation, storytellers from all over the world have been coming together to tell real-life stories that can help, educate or inspire people since 1997. The speakers or performances of the night get on stage and tell their stories similar to a TED talk.
Adelle isn’t the only Kenyan to speak on a Moth stage, Sitawa Wafula, a mental health blogger, has also spoken at The Moth.

Can’t believe this Moth journey started about 2 years ago and has had me hosting in Kigali, Nairobi and performing in New York! pic.twitter.com/SOe527epg0
