The Unwritten With: JOEY MUTHENGI – ON TV, FAKE FRIENDSHIPS, & NOT WANTING CHILDREN

Joey Muthengi. She’s an introvert. A loner. A philanthropist. And an industrious hard-worker.

For this interview, Joey was raw, authentic, and she held nothing back. We agreed that she would only speak her truth; and her truth, did she speak.

Professionally, Joey is, in summary, a media personality. She has, over the years, worked with various media entities as a radio presenter, video jockey, reality music show host, and most recently, worked at Citizen TV,  as a weekday breakfast show co-host, before she resigned.

The Unwritten With: MANASEH NYAINDA – YOUNG, AMBITIOUS, DIFFERENT AND UNAPOLOGETIC

Today’s feature is on Manaseh Nyainda, a man who, as we were initially organising for this interview, addressed me by my surname, said he absolutely loves it, then we laughed, and had our rapport instantly cemented.

As I walk into The Node, in Westlands, I instantly spot Manaseh, because he’s the guy with his head bent towards the table, wholly consumed by his phone. I also know it is him because in that posture, he looks exactly like he does on one of his profile photos on Facebook.

As we make our order, Manaseh asks for a hot drink, no snack. Shortly after the waitress leaves, Manaseh tells me that he only takes one meal per day, dinner.

The Unwritten With: TARURI GATERE – NO, SHE DOESN’T WANT CHILDREN

Tarurî  Gatere was bold enough to go on television, and talk about why she doesn’t want children. And then, the internet erupted.

Viewers were angry. Families were furious. People could not believe that a lady who seemed to have so much going for her, would come out to proclaim such bold statements on national television. (Some people could.)

It was the talk of the nation for the following one week. Tarurî  was receiving all kinds of messages on her phone, emails, and social media inboxes. It was a country gone wild.

The Unwritten With: IAN DUNCAN – UNPACKING HIS LIFE AS A WRITER

You might want to know who Ian Duncan is. He is a writer, a student, a son, a sibling, and he is soft-spoken. He also makes people laugh on social media.

Ian is finding his groove as a writer; he currently works for Citizen TV, and for fun, he expresses himself through Mister Left, a humour blog he runs with his friend.

When I ask about his big break careerwise, Ian, of course, mentions Citizen TV. And then he goes on to narrate a rather bizarre story.

The Unwritten With: DR. WALE AKINYEMI – ON BETRAYAL, HAWKING, AND TRANSFORMING LIVES

I am in Dr. Wale Akinyemi’s home, in Karen.

Outside, the compound is green, and lush, and large.

Inside, the house is magnificent, with warm earthy tones for the decor, interesting black hardwood for the dinning area, and photos of him, his wife and their three, now young-adult children, on the walls.
