cough''cough'' i got to do this interview with the husky voice guy of Kiss tv,yep the one who reads news at around 9pm.....i know a number of young people wona be in the media industry.
I believe it starts with passion ,He is only 23yrs and making it,taking one step at a time and moving on towards his dreams...
1. Kiss Tv News editor at Age 23…tell us how you got to be here?
It took 4 years of work to get here. Started out in Classic in 2006 worked my way up from that point on.
2. How would your friends describe your style?
Depends on who you ask. My male friends would probably say I have a very strong addiction to Jeans, shirts and hoodies. My female friends would give you a list a mile long on why I need to look more formal and less informal. :-). That said, my style tends to be very laid back, and a cross between formal and informal attire. Jeans, sneakers, a shirt and a half sweater are my usual work attire when not on air.so do not look up on him,in the style department....:)
3. Any Embracing Moments on Air?
Embarassing moments....plenty! Having a blank spell in a weekend interview on KTN with Martha Karua is one such moment. That interview was a disaster for me, since I lost the initiative at that point.
4. If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be and why?
I'd trade places with Jeremy Clarkson. Why? Who wouldn't want to be paid to drive cars really fast, be a geek, and be a grease loving monkey under the hood, then have that on TV?( i will answer that for him.....no they dont have that anymore)
5. If Hollywood made a movie about your life, whom would you like to see play the lead role as you?
Chiwetel Ejiofor. As an actor he's just about as good as Hugh Laurie or Hugo Weaving, across numerous roles, from a cold hunter in Firefly, to a thinking, pragmatic American spy catcher in Salt, too a scientist with a conscience in 2012.
6. If you were a tree (or animal) what kind of tree (animal) would you be?
I'd probably be a Leopard.
( i actually didnt manage to ask him why,he choose a leopard i seem to think interesting choice haa)
7..Given a chance to choose a different career path what would you be?
I'd be in 3 industries, video games - as a writer, manga, again, as a writer, and anime, as a writer, director and voice actor.
8.Whats your ultimate dream?
To own Africa's largest finance and media conglomerate.
( all the best in this Ramah,if you can see it and believe it you can achieve it)...aarghh didnt want to sound so usual,but hey that's the best i have heard and known since i was tiny bitty,and its true...:)
9 .Words of wisdom to people looking upto you?
Be yourself. A first rate you, is more valuable than a second rate copy of someone else.
I love that last part...
Have a lovely and friutfull weekend ahead!!!
