Betty Kyallo is having a renaissance month. The veteran journalist might have left K24 a few months ago but that doesn’t seem to have dulled her funk.
This past weekend the always bubbly Miss Kyallo launched her salon Flair by Betty at its new headquarters. The event was graced by the who’s who in Kenyan society with even Ida Odinga making an appearance.
As if that wasn’t enough, it seems that that wasn’t the only great news that transpired this past week. The 32-year-old has revealed that she might be making a return to our TV screens.
After staying off air for almost 3 months, the mother of one revealed this while on an interview with Mpasho where she spoke of a possible return to a station near you!
“I took 3 months off air. I know my fans miss me but I’ll be back like I never left. But first I want to focus on Flair. I was made for TV. I love being on air as it’s my passion. That’s my first love. Ivanna too comes first.”
She also gave additional details about her Flair saying that she spotted the 2 story building and saw it as the perfect fit for her salon. Since it had been vacant for so long; she walked in with her manager to help secure the building.
The rent was an issue at first but Betty explained that the landlord was understanding enough and she managed to raise the money needed in 2 weeks;
“I knew I was going to take a risk but I was ready to do it especially during this Covid-19 pandemic. I came here in a Monday with my manager (This place had a rent sign for like a year but no one had seen it) I met my landlord and he asked for 3 months deposit to be paid within two weeks but I didn’t have the money. However later on she learnt that other clients came in with blank Cheques hoping to rent the house; but the landlord chose to wait for BK who later returned with the full amount!”
