Actress Jacky Vike aka Awinja: My car is my convenience partner


 What type of car do you drive?

A Nissan Tiida.

What colour is it and was it your first choice?

It is black and it was what I wanted. Black has always been my colour when it comes to cars, because it makes a car look sophisticated.

What do you love most about your car?

The jungle green and beige interior! It's very vintage. The wood feel on the steering and the dash board also make me happy. All of that and the leather seats.

Does it have a nickname?

Not really. I have no nicknames, but it’s my convenience partner.

What additions have you made to your car?

My car is still very new, I don't need to soup it up yet but in future, I'll get it some sexy and stylish rims.

So do you have a change of heels in your car?

No. I'm not that girly but I carry wet wipes, tissue, water and a lip gloss.

If you could change a few things about the car what would that be?

Nothing. This car came with everything I ever wanted in a car, the sound system is good, it’s very spacious and so lady-like. I'm happy with it.

Driving in Nairobi is...

...Craaazy!! Everyone is always in a hurry, but I adapted with time.

Are you a fast driver?

No. I hate speed.

What is your ultimate dream car?

I have always admired the Jeep Wrangler, its shape, and the fact that it’s an off-road car drives me crazy.

Picture this...you get a flat tyre on the highway and...

I would definitely fix it! I had to learn how to. To me, there's nothing like 'it's a man's job.'

Traffic is crazy so you...?

...listen to music as I sip on my hot lemon.

And the song that gets you carried away would be...

I don't quite have a specific one but any of my best hip hop songs does it for me. Also Sauti Sol any time.

You hate it when people...

Litter in my car. It's just so wrong. I can't stand an untidy environment.

On average, how much do you spend on fuel?

To be honest, I have never calculated it but let me say it’s very affordable, because my engine is only 1,500cc.
