“Hongera Njuguna!” posted actress Brenda Wairimu while K24 anchor Betty Kyallo and actress Jacky Vike - among others- wrote, “Congratulations!!!!” and “Can’t wait! Congratulations kimtuu,” respectively.
Celebrities with TV shows
With his new TV show, Njugush joins a growing list of Kenyan celebrities with television shows with the latest being gospel singer Linet Munyali better known as Size 8 who was recently named the new host of Rembo TV’s MinjiMinji’s show.
“MinjiMinji Season 2 is here Fam and it comes with lots and lots of surprises. We welcome our new host @size8reborn starting 5th May. Tell a friend to tell a friend to make a date with us,” read the post.
The former Pambio Live host and her husband DJ Mo also announced that they were planning to air their own reality show dubbed, Dine with the Muraya’s.
“It will have various segments within the show, but the concept is mostly centred on couples. I am not sure what happened with the poster, I think it came out yesterday but as you can see it still doesn’t have a date.
“There are some things we are still discussing and then that’s when we can make it official. It’s not even on our social media pages yet. We are still ironing out some things and when we are done we will let you know,” said DJ Mo.
The couple will be following in the footsteps of former EMB Records CEO Bahati who has his own reality show dubbed Being Bahati that focuses on his family and their day to day activities.
The show which airs on NTV has over time gotten tremendous feedback from fans landing it a nomination at the nominated for Kalasha Awards last year.
“Good news. With only three Months on NTV, Being Bahati has just been nominated as the Best TV show in Kenya Kalasha Awards. Thank you our fans for making this your favourite show on TV,” posted Bahati.
