When it comes to male media personalities, Mark Masai quickly comes to mind. The handsome, often private journalist-turned actor has been a favourite among Kenyan women.
Masai was born Masai Abdullahi Kasim, a name he maintained even though he grew up Christian. He later changed his name to Mark Masai.
In an interview with a local media house, Masai explained that he was born to a Muslim mother who put him up for adoption when he was seven months old. He has since made contact with his mother.
Masai married Fiona Nduta in a private ceremony in 2015 and the two have a daughter, Nashipae.
