The INEOS marathon wasn’t the only non-music video that made the list. The Ethiopian Airlines B737 MAX that crashed after take-off en route to Nairobi from Addis Ababa was a major global aviation story in 2019. It came as a shock to the nation and a tragedy as several Kenyans were on the flight and lost their lives.

Unfortunately, the aeroplane crash wasn’t the only tragedy that made the list, the Likoni Ferry tragedy was also another one of Kenya’s most-watched videos.
