One year, two years, three years.. It now seems Kenyans have grown tired of waiting to see their favourite anchor, Larry Madowo, share pics of his wife and maybe his kids with his millions of social media followers.
His fans want the fairly young multi-talented and abundantly successful media personality to ditch the bachelors’ club and find himself a wife.
And that worsened after Larry Madowo, 28, recently introduced one of the most special women in his life -his first employer by the name Lorna Nyatome. What did you think?
“Lorna Nyatome gave me my first paid job in media when I was just 19. She hired me as a writer for a now-defunct tech magazine called e1. I was objectively terrible but she had faith in me & saw potential. I’m forever grateful to her for getting me started in journalism that early,” Mr Madowo captioned the photo below.
“That gig cemented my love for technology, taught me how to write and reaffirmed my career choice. Even though I went on to cover business news, politics and pop culture, tech has always been my first love.
The moral of this story is that you need to start now, with what you have and what you already know. As a 19-year-old first year student in college, I didn’t have much writing skills but I knew I wanted to make a career in journalism. When I went for the interview that got me hired at KTN, I had nothing but those writing samples from jobs like this. Linus Kaikai, Farida Karoney and the management then hired me purely on the strength of my writing.
Don’t wait until you get your diploma, degree or professional certification. Start looking for opportunities in your chosen field now!”
But his fans had a piece of advice for him as well;
