If you’ve been following popular journalist Larry Madowo since a few years ago, then you know he has gained quite some kilos, and that’s some good proof the figure on his cheque has been increasing with time.
Madowo, when he started out, was quite the bony one. I remember when he used to read lunchtime news, and present some tech show on some station (KTN I guess). The suits use to ‘wear him’.
He has since risen to become one of the biggest names in news reading and also for hosting one of the biggest weekend shows – The Trend.
It is said that when Madowo first plunged into journalism, he was discouraged from pursing a career in television, that he was too skinny for TV. Well, I wonder where the not so skinny naysayers are today.
Larry Madowo once wrote on his Daily Nation column Front Row, that when he got his first job at aged 20, he was “a wide-eyed, skinny village boy.”
But the being comfortable with his now growing tummy cements the fact that he is proud of who he is today. He is now the bonny dude.
A few days ago, some guy tweeted how the newscaster has added the kilos, adding that it must be God’s favour manifesting in him. Accompanying smileys however showed it was on a light note.
But unlike Mejja who put a hater in his place after a fan attacked him on the same issue, when the artist together with his Kansoul chaps appeared on Larry’s show a few Fridays ago, Larry wore a cool demeanour.
“God’s image is increasing in me.” That’s what he simply said.
