Today on the Classic Countdown with Harriet A Kinga, we sample music from the year that Ebola virus killed 244 Africans in Kikwit, Zaire in Central Africa.
A very bubbly, youthful and beautiful Mimmy Khamis sat right across me as I held a sheet of questions to ask her. The interview at first made her a bit anxious, but I calmed her nerves by starting with a compliment. She felt like she was in a job interview, but with a friendlier panel.
Listening to her on Classic 105’s mid-morning show is a breath of fresh air. Her way of presenting music makes you eager to listen, even though you may have heard the track thousands of times. She was willing to let her fans know about her life by telling them a bit about herself.
Being the only lady presenter on Classic 105, surrounded by the very best, Maina Kageni, Mwalimu King’ang’i, Larry Asego and Nick Odhiambo, she has to be super confident, but has taken advantage of the situation to learn from the best of the best. She happily revealed that they treat her like their ‘little sister’.
She has a plan for her show that is different and fun involving less talk and more feel good music – just what the fans are yearning for.
Here’s how the interview went down;
