When I first spoke to Derek Bbanga, I made sure to ask him one particular question: what did he think about weaves? His answer was that of a knowledgeable man. A wise man. A man who knows he has to deal with women every day.
Derek, in one word, is an artist. He does photography as a hobby, he’s an actor, a speaker, an MC and also a fitness trainer. He is, however, also well known for being an image consultant and a relationship expert. He gives dating tips on the famous Kenyan dating show Tujuane.
Derek was kind enough to tell me what type of music gets him moving, brag about his culinary skills, and describe what a perfect date means for him.
